Johnny L. Aaron

Aaron was a prominent fixture in the central Arkansas construction community and spent more than 27 years with ACE. He had received numerous certifications from technical and leadership trainings over the years and was recognized as the go-to source of information for many general contractors, architects and building owners for difficult situations involving glass and glazing systems.

“As the leader of all commercial glazing projects for ACE Glass, Johnny has left a legacy of working safely, working smart and most of all, working hard. There were few people around who could match his pace over the course of a work week, and he had the ability to seemingly be several places at once during his daily travels,” an obituary from ACE reads.

“He was passionate about the people who worked with him and served not only as a mentor in the technical aspects of curtainwall, storefront and ACM panel installations, but was also a true friend with a genuine concern for what was going on in the lives of his co-workers. Countless glaziers have benefitted from his guidance and by the example that he set for them every day.

“His influence will live on for years in the lives of the people he touched on the numerous projects that were completed on his watch.”

Funeral services were held at the First Assembly of God church in Dumas, Ark. Tuesday, May 19, with burial in the Jefferson Cemetery. Johnny Aaron was preceded in death by his father, Bud Aaron, and his brother, Ronny Aaron. Survivors include his mother, Mary Hudgins; son, Logan Aaron; two sisters, Becky Peter and Vicky (Rick) Newton; fiancée, Jo Jones; fiancee’s children, Bobbie Perry and Rick Tidwell; and her grandchildren Nathan and Anthony Perry.

Memorials may be made in honor of Ronny Aaron to Out of Darkness Walks, www.AFSP.org or to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, www.NationalMSSociety.org.
