Frankie Aaron

May 19, 1957 — August 28, 2021

Charles Franklin “Frankie” Aaron, Sr., 64, a resident of Benton, passed away peacefully on Saturday, August 28, 2021, with his loving wife at his side.

Frankie was born on May 19, 1957, in Benton, Tennessee to the late Nettie Kathleen Shelton.  Throughout life, Frankie accepted Christ into his heart at an early age and was of the Baptist faith.  He was a member and Sunday school director at Beacon Baptist Church.  Frankie retired from the Polk County Road Department after 26 faithful and dedicated years of service to our community.  Well known throughout the community for his kind heart and affectionate smile, he was mostly known for being a caring and loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, and friend.  He had a smile that would light up a room and one that will never be forgotten.

In addition to his mother, Nettie Shelton, he was preceded in death by his uncle, C.L. “Tick” Shelton.

Left to cherish his memory include his loving wife of 25 years, Cherie Ledford Aaron; loving children, Tisha (Matt) Mason, Charles (Sherry) Aaron, Jr., and Matthew Aaron and fiancée Heather Kelly; adored grandchildren, Bailey (Bryson) Epperson, Emiley Aaron, Brittney Aaron, Kalee Aaron, Kimberly Mason, Mattyson Aaron, Charlie Aaron, III., Kylee Aaron, Layla, Karson Naverette, and Lyric Gibson; siblings, Louise Duke, Velma Standridge, Billy (Kay) Standridge, James (JoAnn) Standridge, and Pam (Tom) Zurcher.  A host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and beloved friends also survive.

A Celebration of Life service will be conducted at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, September 2, 2021, in the chapel of Higgins Funeral Home with Pastor Floyd Boggess officiating.  Graveside service will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, September 3, 2021, at Old Ocoee Cemetery with Tim Standridge, Tommy Standridge, Lige McDonald, Dude Seay, Dustin Anderson, and Travis Anderson serving as pallbearers.  Honorary pallbearers are his colleagues from the Polk County Road Department.
