Aaron McCown
Funeral Associate

My name is Aaron McCown. I am a Funeral Associate. I have been with Georgia Funeral Care for about 10 years now. I started here my senior year of high school just looking to help a good friend of mine with some maintenance work around the facility. I quickly gained interest in the funeral industry and developed a love for helping families in their time of need. It has been refreshing and an honor to be somewhat of a shining light during someone’s darkest time. The experiences, relationships, and knowledge I have gained from this journey are incomparable and have truly shaped the man I am today... Outside of the funeral industry I work in the Financial field. I’m an avid fisherman and take pride in being a Dog father of (3) Rottweilers. My favorite quote: “Earn it, so no one can say they gave it to you.”
