Biography: Aaron Walter Fraser was born November 4, 1970 to Janice Marie Harley Fraser and the late Joseph Emmanuel Fraser. On March 12, 2021, God decided it was time for Aaron to return home to glory for his eternal rest. Aaron was the eldest of six siblings, however he would always say that we were probably one of the few families where cousins and closest friends doubled as our brother and sisters.
Aaron was a multifaceted individual. Aaron was a modern contemporary man, but also had strong beliefs on how a man should care lovingly for his family. Aaron would always say “family is everything” which was evident with the love that he shared for his mother, siblings, nieces, nephews and godson. He had a unique individual relationship with his mother, each sibling, niece, nephew and god child. “Uncle Aaron” (what the kids called him!) was a great surrogate parent. You could depend on him to go on class trips, do college drop offs, plan play dates, pick up and drop off the kids to wherever they needed to be – in a nutshell he was their personal Uber!
Aaron could be all things to everyone in his circle and still have much left for others. Aaron shared an intimacy with people that made many feel comfortable enough to share their most inner private details. Wise beyond his years, Aaron was passionate about learning. He earned both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in Business Administration from Mercy college and an MBA in Finance from Metropolitan College of NY. In addition to educational endeavors, Aaron was, an author and candidate for pollical office in the state of New Jersey. While Aaron knew how to have a good time, he also knew how to have solitude for centering. We could be in the midst of having a great time celebrating and Aaron would drop a scripture on us. Whenever anyone was going through Aaron would say “there was a scripture for that” quote the scripture and then explain it! Aaron knew the Lord and he always gave thanks and attributes his love for the Lord to his Mother and following in his Mother’s footsteps, Aaron went on to receive a Theological Degree from Liberty University
There was something else that Aaron loved as much as he loved education and his family and that was style. Haberdashery was his pedigree, and Bespoke was a must. He would always say “dress for the job you want, and not the job you currently have”. Aaron’s Famous line among many was “I AM A MAN FIRST”. He was truly that, A MAN, and more to all of us. Our lives are extremely blessed for having him for the time that we did.
