Aaron was born in Rockford, Illinois on a cold fall morning; the son of Rev. Dr. William R. Kerr, Sr. and Diane (Johnson) Kerr. Both of his parents were heavily involved in funeral service during his entire life, as his father had his Doctorate in bereavement and served families regularly in the transition and celebration for people who were dealing with a loss. Aaron's mom is a very talented beautician and has worked for a well-respected funeral home in the area now for the past 50 years. He regularly tagged along on their trips to the funeral homes, and eventually found himself being called upon to play his bagpipes at funerals regularly. In 2010, he enrolled at the Worsham College of Mortuary Science, and received his funeral director and embalmers license in 2011. Since then, he has been called on by the Schneider Family on a consistent basis, to play his pipes for the families of the greater Janesville area, which has always been an absolute honor for him. In January of 2018, Bill and Neal Schneider gave him the invitation to serve the Janesville community as a director and arranger for the Funeral Home, and he has loved it here ever since. Aaron has two boys, Malcolm and Ronan; and a dog, Mabel. He likes to stay active with family time and wherever that takes them! Outside of his time at the funeral home, he is honored to serve as the Duty Piper for Janesville Police Department, and he also enjoys participating in bagpipe competitions in the greater Midwest area and even Canada. He feels it's an honor to be in this position to help serve the families of Janesville and provide a well-suited option for the people they love so dearly.
