Aaron Merrill Roundy, beloved Dad and Grandpa, peacefully passed away on February 1st, 2024 surrounded by his three daughters. Born on April 16th, 1962 in Bountiful, Utah to parents Lyle and Erma Roundy of Kaysville, Utah. He was raised and educated in Kaysville Utah schools and graduated from Davis High School in 1980. He served a mission in Indiana for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He later married Mechelle Hatch in 1983. They raised their three daughters, Rachel, Amy, and Katelyn, later divorcing in 2006.
Aaron worked many jobs through his early adulthood to provide for his family. His most memorable was selling electronics at RC Willey. His hard work lead him to successfully owning several dry cleaning businesses throughout his lifetime.
Aaron had many hobbies he enjoyed. He loved spending time on the golf course. One of his most memorable times being when he hit a hole-in-one with his 8 iron at Rose Park Golf Course on Hole 1. He had several motorcycles and loved to ride. He took many bike trips riding with his friends, the “Black Widows”. Aaron had a passion for music, which he passed down to his daughters and grandkids. There will always be a memory attached to any song that his family hears. He had a beautiful yard which he took pride in. Many memories were made spending time doing yard work, having bbqs, and playing cornhole. You would have often found Aaron on the Farmington Lagoon Trail wearing his headphones, a drink in one hand, and his dog’s leash in the other. The most important thing to Aaron was his family. His most treasured prize were his grandkids. He spent much of his time cheering on his grandsons at their football games, and applauding his granddaughters at their dance competitions.
Aaron is preceded in death by his parents Lyle and Erma Roundy. He is survived by his children, Rachel Mechelle (John) Kiesz, Amy Camille (Joel) Kenny, Katelyn Marie (Tanner) Neville; his 8 grandchildren, Jett, Zoey, Bridger, Kyler, Kameron, Kendall, Charlie, and Ozzy; and his 4 brothers and 4 sisters.
His daughters would like to give a special thanks to the Oncology and Radiation department, and all the amazing nurses and staff at McKay Dee Hospital. We are so grateful for the comfort and care Aaron’s doctors and nurses provided him and his family throughout his treatment. We will forever cherish the friendships made with his doctors and nurses.
