James Aaron Strain, 33, of Cooleemee, NC passed away Jan. 25, 2023 at Baptist Hospital; he was surrounded by loved ones until he was ready to go home.

Aaron was born to Jmes Bruce Strain (Jimmy) and Colleen Stanley Strain in Gaffney, S.C. Aaron was preceded in death by his sister, Norma Jean Frye, and is survived by his nephew Jeremy Kinton, and niece April Kinton.

Aaron graduated from Davie County High School, before moving on to Forsyth Tech to pursue nursing. Aaron loved to help people, and worked as a CNA for a period of time, before returning to restaurant management.

Aaron was a hilarious person, who could make anyone smile. He loved animals, children, and music. He loved to jam out to all types of music with his loved ones. Aaron was extremely adventurous and would drop everything to go on a spontaneous adventure, whether to Florida or California. He enjoyed the outdoors and going to both the beach and the mountains.

“They say home is where the heart is, and for most people that consists of four walls and a welcome mat. But for him, it was the ocean.”

He loved rainbows and made sure everyone knew it. Whether it was with rainbow sunglasses or decor in his home, Aaron made sure that his personality showed as bright and colorful as a rainbow.

“Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud.”

-Maya Angelou

Aaron will be greatly missed by so many loved ones.

This was never goodbye, it was always, “see you later”.

There will be no services at this time, but rather a celebration of life at a later date.

We, the staff at Davie Funeral Service of Mocksville, are honored to serve the family.
