Tom and Donna:

I am so sorry to hear of Aaron’s passing. He was always bigger than life and very kind.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and the rest of his family.

I was in high school with Aaron and he always had a big personality and a wonderful sense of humor. I’m so very sorry for your loss and thank Aaron for his service to our country.

Aaron was a west end engineer and I’m an east end engineer. Although I didn’t work in the same pool as he did, he knew my name and talked to me as though we’d been friends for a lifetime. He WILL be missed and the world is a darker and a more lonely place without him in it. My deepest and most sincere condolences to his family

Gale. I know we’ve never met but I want to express my sympathy to you and your family. I had known Aaron since I started with the railroad in Galesburg twenty years ago. He was a great person, always had a smile on his face, and I rarely saw him upset. He was a joy to be around. Again so sorry.

Man it seems like yesterday we was in the hall way or a party laughing a great guy to talk with and a cool friend rest easy my brother to the family I can only imagine your pain but Jesus will comfort you in this time of loss trust in him rest my brother watch over from a far sending hugs and love to you all

Dear Donna and Tom, we are so very sorry to hear of your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and all of your family.

I served with Hiles in the Marines. Hi was his platoon Sgt,, Friend and Comrade. We were in Somalia together. Hiles was a Fun, Lovable, Genuine and Real Marine. He got along with everyone. Color or Race made no difference to him. I remember when we where on the ship coming back from Somalia, his father and brother were on the Tiger Cruise. Hiles The Marines of MSSG-11 Love you and Miss your Smile, Love and Friendship. Signing off for now Sgt Pate. Lord Jesus Comfort, Heal, Hold and Keep the Hiles Family at this time. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.

So sorry to hear of your loss. Although we did not know Aaron well we heard many wonderful stories. We will continue to pray for your comfort. Jan and Larry Rader.

I’m so very sorry about Aaron, he was a great guy and a good rail, Thank you for your service to our country, Rest In Peace my friend!!!

Tim, Donna, and Nicole,
I’m so very sorry for your loss. Prayers to your family and thankful for his service.

Aaron and I were in the same unit in the Marines. Aaron (Hiles), was a Marine’s Marine. He was dedicated and committed to the Corps. I served with him in California and Somalia. Hiles was friends with everyone. He had the smile that cold light up anywhere he was at. You are truly missed brother. Lord Jesus strengthen and comfort the Hiles family at this time. Sgt Pate, U.S.M.C.

Condolences and sympathy to the Hiles family. I worked with Aaron at the railroad. A few years ago he had lost his Engineer card and worked as my brakeman on the Marceline Local. I very much enjoyed working with him. He was a great fellow employee and friend. I served in the US Navy so we had fun teasing each other about the Marines and Navy.

My sympathy to the family. Aaron was a great teammate and I always enjoyed his laugh. You are all in my prayers.

We did not have the privilege of knowing Aaron, but knew of him through his parents, our dear former neighbors, Tom and Donna. There was no doubt of the Hile’s love for Aaron and the pride they felt for their son. Our hearts are heavy for his family, friends, and all those who were touched by Aaron’s life. May the legacy we leave be as stellar as Aaron’s. May the Lord help his family and friends navigate through these dark waters of grief.
We thank God for the hope of the resurrection when all God’s family will be reunited, when death will be destroyed and there will be no more tears.

Gale, and Mr. & Mrs. Hiles,
I’m so very sorry for your loss. Aaron had a fantastic demeanor, and a great sense of humor. When I’d come to work & see him, he’d always greet me with a big ol grin, and I will miss that greatly. And as a fellow vet, it hurts even more. I know how proud you all are of the man he became. He truly was a gentle giant, and I look forward to seeing him again some day. As we all. God bless.

My loving thoughts and condolences to you all; I hope the memories you carry and the love you share bring you comfort as you make it through these difficult time. Aaron may be gone but he’ll never be forgottten!

Tom and Donna,
I am so very sorry to hear of the
loss of your son. You are in my

would love to see you and catch up.

I just Learned of Aaron’s passing. I am very sorry for your loss .Actually his passing is a great loss to all of us who knew him. I worked on the railroad with him . I always remember the great conversations that we had and his positive attitude. I wish now that I had kept in touch more often since I quit the railroad. He was a good man and he always spoke highly of his wife and about times they shared together.
