Mr. Aaron, a native of Russia, came to the United States in 1912 to be with his son, Louis Aaron. Soon after he came to what he learned to describe as the "land of bountiful gifts which has been blest by God," he began sending packages of food and clothing to families in Europe and the Near East. His son recalls that his gifts of clothing made a wedding possible in Palestine when the bride to be found the dress could serve her for her wedding gown. Others gifts of food and clothing have found their way to Latvia, remote hamlets in Russia, Smyrna and Palestine. Mr. Aaron's only reward was the knowledge he had that he had helped someone. Surviving, in addition to Louis Aaron, are the widow, Mrs. Rachel Aaron; three other sons, Albert, Herbert and Charles Aaron; three daughters, Miss Anna Aaron and Mrs. David Ogrin, all of Charleston, and Mrs. Joseph Drasnin of Los Angeles, and seven grandchildren.
