Born in Albany, Aaron had lived in Worth County for most of his young life. He was a kind young man that was loved by all that knew him. Aaron loved people and enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. He had a heart of gold and was always ready to help others. Aaron always had a smile on his face and a funny sense of humor that brought smiles to those around him.
He was a member of the JROTC Program at Worth County High School and intended to join the Army after graduation. Aaron was a kind-hearted person who had a sweet loving spirit that could be seen in his actions for others around him. He enjoyed working at the Piggly Wiggly of Sylvester helping customers. He loved Jesus and attended Terrell Baptist Church. Although Aaron was only with us for a short while, he left a lasting mark on the hearts and minds of those who knew him and will be missed. We love you Aaron Thomas.
