Aaron began his career in funeral service while a junior in
high school. During his college years he was presented with opportunities to
work in other areas of the southeast, but he was committed to serving the
people of his home community. He still carries that same commitment to his home
community in the services provided today through Ellison Memorial Funeral Home.
Aaron founded what is now Ellison Memorial Funeral Home in 2010 on the same
principles that are used today; provide affordable, compassionate, dignified
care, while always being here when you need us.

along with his wife, Tracy Newman Ellison. Together they have 4 Sons: Jace
Newman (16), Aaden Ellison (14), Coven Ellison (6) and Emmett Ellison (5). He
is the son of Joe Earl and Cindy Ellison; and is the grandson of Jettie Mae and
