David Aaron Julien, 44, passed away at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta on Friday, May 1, 2020. The son of Lynn Julien and Beverly Falvey, Aaron was born in Hornell, New York. He earned his Bachelor’s Degree and was a proud member of his engineering team at MERC in Warner Robins where he did important work as an industrial engineer. Aaron enjoyed working with his hands and on machines. He was a gifted welder, fabricator, and woodworker. Aaron also loved sports, especially soccer, basketball, and football, and was an avid New York Giants football fan.
He was a devoted husband to his wife, Hazel, who exclaimed, “He is the love of my life and I will miss his laugh and sense of humor.” Aaron was also an amazing father who had a strong and close bond with his three children, Alyssa (20), Aiden (10), and Kai (5). He always encouraged his boys to join him in many home projects; the most recent one was a vegetable garden. Aaron spent every moment of his spare time with his family. Alyssa will forever cherish her deep and meaningful conversions with her father. Aiden will always remember the fun he had playing Fortnite with his dad, who was also his best friend. Kai, when asked what he will miss most about his dad, stated “snuggling so hard and playing with me.” Along with his wife and children, Aaron has touched many other lives throughout the years; his memory will be cherished by all of those who were fortunate enough to have known him.
Aaron was preceded in death by his first wife, Amy Delee Julien; maternal grandmother, Luella Sharp; paternal grandparents, Donald and Dolores Julien; and uncle, Frank Long.
