On Saturday, June 22, 2019, Aaron Jerome Newton, loving father of two children, passed away at the age of 44 while enjoying what he loved most; riding his cherished Harley.
Aaron was born January 8, 1975, in Atlantic, Iowa. He attended Atlantic High school, graduating in 1993. He began working for Schwan’s shortly after graduation. Aaron worked for Schwan’s for approximately 15 years. On May 4, 2002, he married Melissa Docker. From this union, two wonderful children were born, Aaron Jacob and Pruett JoAnn. Aaron later married Melanie Kramer in January 2016. With this union, Aaron gained two step-children, Morgan and Zane.
Aaron enjoyed watching his kids participate in numerous school activities and looked forward to their summer vacations each year for family adventure. He was a life-long Chicago Bears and Iowa Hawkeyes fan. When it came to music, he loved to rock out to Guns N’ Roses, Metallica, and Ozzy Osbourne just to name a few. He also enjoyed riding his Harley and embarked on many adventurous trips. On one special occasion, Aaron and his brother Dan rode all the way to California to visit his cousin Heath. He was known for his quick wit, boisterous laugh, infectious smile, and his kind and compassionate spirit. His greatest joys in life were his children and enjoying time with his family and good friends.
Aaron was preceded in death by his mom, Hazel Newton and his Mommy, Denise Siedelmann.
