Aron C. Haynes of Valley, passed away on December 28, 2023, at the age of 98, in Valley, Alabama. Born on October 7, 1925, in Roanoke, Alabama, Aron's life was a testament to the enduring power of faith, family, and dedication.
Aron was a devoted husband to his late wife, Christeen Haynes, with whom he shared over 70 years of loving marriage. Together, they built a legacy of love and commitment that continues to live on through their family. He was a loving father to his daughters, Regina Rutledge and Susan (Tracy) Newman. His role as a grandfather was one he cherished deeply, imparting wisdom and joy to his grandchildren, Ashley (Andrew) White, Chesley (Shay) Rutledge, Jr., Lacy Newman, and Tracy (Morgan) Newman, Jr. Aron also embraced the blessing of great-grandchildren, Jayden Rutledge, Addi Rutledge, Taylor White, Ashlyn Rutledge, Luke White, and Olivia White, who brought him immeasurable happiness.
Aron proudly served his country in the United States Army during World War II. He was always proud and honored to have served under General Patton's 3rd Infantry Division.
Before his retirement, Aron dedicated 45 years of service to the Fairfax Mill Bleachery and Dye Works Department. His work ethic and commitment to his role were emblematic of his character—reliable, steadfast, and always striving for excellence.
Aron's life was a reflection of his values. He was a long-standing member of Emmanuel Baptist Church, where he lived out his faith and served his community with grace and humility. His love for the University of Alabama football was only surpassed by his love for his family, which remained the most important aspect of his life. Aron's presence at family gatherings was a source of comfort and joy, and his willingness to support and care for family members in times of need was unwavering.
An avid fisherman, Aron found solace and pleasure in the quiet moments by the water, patiently waiting for the next catch. His love for the outdoors was also evident in his routine walks, which he used not only for exercise but as a time for reflection and appreciation of the world around him.
Those who knew Aron would describe him as loving, selfless, and faith-filled. His actions spoke louder than words, as he consistently put the needs of others before his own. In the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson, "To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded." Aron truly succeeded in making a profound difference in the lives of those he touched.
Aron's legacy is not marked by material possessions or accolades but by the love he shared and the lives he enriched. His gentle spirit and kind heart will be remembered by all who had the privilege of knowing him.
As we bid farewell to Aron C. Haynes, we celebrate a life well-lived—a life filled with purpose, generosity, and an unwavering commitment to his loved ones. Though he has left this earthly realm, his spirit will continue to guide and inspire us. Aron's memory will be cherished and kept alive in the hearts of his family, friends, and all who were blessed to cross his path.
Immediate services will be private with a Celebration of Life Service planned for a later date to be announced.
