Memorial Gifts & Donations




Aarron Manley Batts, of Leland, NC passed away Sunday, February 21, 2021 at the age of 16.

He was born in Wilmington, NC on June 13, 2004 to William (Billy) and Christina (Abby) Batts-Nelson.

Aarron is survived by his three sisters Alexis, Naomi, Taylor and his niece Brielle. His surviving grandparents are Don and Lori Nelson and Buddy and Phyllis Simmons.

Aarron enjoyed playing football with the Brunswick County Parks and Recreation. He was an avid hunter and fisherman. He loved spending time with his dad in the woods hunting and on the water fishing. If you saw one, you would always see the other.

He had a very loving relationship with his mother and most people would say that he was a “Mama’s Boy”.  When it came to his siblings, they would say that he had a mischievous side. He loved laughing and joking around with all of them. Then it was off to his room for some serious gaming. To his close friends he was known as one of the best gamers in their Gaming Group.

Aarron will be deeply missed by his loving family which includes many aunts, uncles and cousins.

A fundraiser has been set up to assist Aarron’s family through this difficult time. Although we cannot take away the pain of their loss, we can help ease the unexpected financial challenges. Donations may be made at www.tmcfunding.com.

A family visitation will be held from 12:00-1:00 on February 26, 2021 at First Baptist Church in Leland, NC. The funeral service will follow at 1:00.  Burial will be at the First Baptist Church Cemetery.
