Philip "Aaron" Shead


Philip "Aaron" Shead, 59, of Pittsburg, died unexpectedly on July 7, 2022, at his residence, where he lived with his brother Michael Shead. He was born Jan. 20, 1964, in Pittsburg, to Philip Guy Shead and Lynne Carlyle-Chiapinni.

Aaron enjoyed spending time with his family and friends as well as his beloved dog, Fergie. He was a loyal friend and the type of person who, if he could, would give you the shirt off his back. He was also a very loving father and grandfather. Aaron will be dearly missed and always remembered.

In addition to his mother, he was predeceased by his grandparents, Lindall and Marie Carlyle, and Mary Shead. Surviving in addition to his long-term partner, Deborah Herndon, are his daughters, Erin Shead and Bethany Baker of Pittsburg; granddaughters, Daisy and Harley Emerson of Pittsburg, and granddaughter Emberly Dawson; his father, Philip Shead of Topeka; sister, Becky Shead of Seattle, Washington; brother, Michael Shead of Mulberry; sister-in-law, Connie Shead of Pittsburg; as well as his nieces and nephews: Gloria Shollenberger, Eli Shead, Kimberly Shead, Kayla Hill, Jacob Shead, and John Shead; and many great-nieces and nephews.

We request all of Aaron's loved ones to join us in celebrating their beautiful life on Saturday, Sept. 17, at 10:30 a.m. in the Mulberry Senior citizen center in Mulberry, Kansas. Burial will follow at Mulberry cemetery after the celebration. Please RSVP on the website below or contact the family.
