The Legacy of Aaron -

Big A, Unc, and Granddaddy, as he was affectionately called, was born, December 6, 1954, to Mr. Joe Willie Whaley and Mrs. Inez Maggit Whaley, in Memphis, Tennessee.

He dedicated his life to Christ at an early, and continued his walk in Christ throughout his life by attending Grace Baptist Church. He attended Northside High School, in Memphis, Tennessee. Although he was a "Jack of all trades", he worked for Schering Plough and retired after 25 plus years.

"Big A" was a standout basketball player, starring in high school and playing in leagues. He had a mean left hook that helped him lead his teams to victories.

"Unc", short for uncle, was a Natural comedian. He could keep you laughing for hours. He was the life of the party, and, he was a master griller.

"Granddaddy" was simply loved by all. He could and would help Anyone...
