Aaron Don Collier
“Love life! Love the blue sky, the stars at night, and all beautiful things. Love yourself, love your Maker, and you will be very, very happy.” Add in a love for golf, fishing, family, sunsets, and being kind to everyone you meet, and this quote from Rhinoceros Success is exactly how Aaron will always be remembered. Friends and family describe him as a strong, positive, sweet, family-man, who was a larger-than-life force.
