James Francis Aaron, age 75, passed away on December 3, 2019 in Kokomo. He was born in Kokomo in 1944 to the late William and Helen (DeWeese) Aaron.
Following high school, James enlisted into the United States Navy, and served for four years as an electrician on the USS Montrose, and assisted with taking Marines to shore. After he was honorably discharged, James spent some time working for the post office, and then went to work at Delco (Delphi) Electronics for 30 years as a pipefitter.
James was married to the love of his life, Barbara, in Kokomo, and she survives. James and Barbara enjoyed spending time visiting historic landmarks, particularly related to the Civil War.
