Aaron was born on Nov. 26, 1923 in Ellis, Kansas. He served two Tours of Duty with the U.S. ARMY during WWII and returned home to take care of his father, mother and siblings on the family farm in Tonganoxie, KS. He retired from Deluxe Check in Lenexa, KS. Aaron married the love of his life Joan (Kepler) Landauer on June 5, 1982 at the Holy Angels Catholic Church. Survivors include his wife Joan of the home, three daughters Beverly McMillian of Shawnee, KS., Viana DeRossett (Mike) of Tonganoxie, KS., Debbie Stovall (Rich) of Springhill, KS., and one son Jimmy Fisher of Shawnee, KS. as well as 11 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren that adored him and six sisters, Sister Mary Lillian, Laurina Seymour, Agnes Shepard, Margaret Smith, Marcella Wyatt and Kathleen Keylon.
Aaron will be buried in his family plot at Holy Angels Catholic Cemetery where he will be able to watch over the family farm. From her house across the road, his angel on earth, Viana, will be able to take care of his earthly resting place, as promised. Being with Aaron on his journey we learned of his tremendous strength, compassion and selflessness. At the end, our little ones had a better understanding of his journey. They told us he went home to be with his Mom. He left our world a better place for knowing him.
