I do not think there is a profile/tree started for Hamerin' Hank Aaron, the baseball great and real gentleman, who died on Friday, January 22nd. I have copied his wikipedia page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hank_Aaron

Perhaps someone who focuses on might start a profile? I am overwhelmed with work this week, as well as a family health issue. I will be happy to add as soon as possible. THANK YOU!

Hello Anon,

Thank you for this feedback; however, Aaron-617 is not bringing up Hank Aaron's profile. I am getting profiles for persons with the first name Aaron. It could be my connectivity as we are having storms (with storm warnings) here. If at all possible, could you post the full URL for Hank Aaron's profile? Thank you very much!

Thank you both very much!

A brief story: My brother, now a retired sheriff, was flying home from Fort Leonard Wood after basic training back in the 1960s. He was seated next to a 'dapper and very kind black man' on the return flight to Milwaukee. He said they shared a very nice conversation. And, of course, that man was Hank Aaron. My brother shared this story on FB on Friday as his remembrance of a young man fresh from boot camp meeting a hero of his. As kids, my brother and I attended ball games at the stadium when Hank Aaron played with the Milwaukee Braves.

Again, thanks both of you for the links!
