He and Leslie moved to Pearland, where he went to San Jacinto Community College to obtain his Associate Degree. He also took several classes at the University of Houston. He and Leslie then returned home to Limestone County. He had different jobs, but finally found the job he loved in Medical Waste Transport. Aaron and Leslie then moved to Waco, Texas, where they were residing at time of death.
Aaron loved riding his motorcycle with his friends. Some other activities he loved were woodworking, outdoor camping, and fishing with his father, Brian Foster. Aaron loved going to Panama with Brian, surfing, and fishing. He always loved to read and talk about history. He loved animals, and they had two cats of their own.
