Aaron Yvell Davis was born on December 21, 1967 to parents Don Hadden and Mary E. Williams in Columbus, Ohio, where he grew up with his five brothers and three sisters. Aaron attended West High School. As a teen he loved spending time with his family. He enjoyed playing basketball, dancing, and playing 2-on-2 football with his brother Martin. As a young adult he developed a passion for cooking and always kept a "businessman" mentality.
Everyday Aaron lived his life to the fullest through simple pleasures: spending time with friends and family. He had a natural ability to touch every heart that he encountered and never made an enemy. Aaron was genuine and caring in every aspect. He certainly did not disappoint when it came to wholeheartedly loving his children and family.
Aaron is preceded in death by his father Don Hadden, sister Tracy Saunders, and granddaughter Jada Jones.
He is survived by his mother Mary E. Williams, long time partner of 16 years Patricia Jones, sons Aaron Davis, Dequawn Davis, Darius Davis, Treavon Leach, Trace Davis, and Javell Davis, daughters Charlina Davis, Niesha Leach, Marsheiqua Portman, Brie Conwell, Gabrielle Conwell, Aubree Conwell, and Quayla Jones, siblings Ben (Trina) Davis, Karl (Chi-Chi) Davis, Martin (Gwen) Davis, Claude Watters, James (Shayla) Saunders, Kim Saunders, and Cassandra Watters, as well as his 21 grandchildren.
