Micah Aaron was born in Midland, Texas, to Don and Gina Haislett. He moved to Odessa, Texas, in 2012 and met Ramanda Lynn Sanning. Micah and Mandy married on May 6, 2017. He finished his career as a Multiskilled Operator for ConocoPhillips and received five years of service in April 2022.
Micah was hard-working, driven, and desired self-growth and wellness. He passionately threw himself into everything he tried and regularly reminded his family of his favorite saying, “If you don’t work, you don’t eat.” He was continually on the lookout for his next challenge to gain self-knowledge for both individual growth and the betterment of his family. He was innovative, imaginative, and creative. He was accomplished and a jack of all trades, and to name a few, he obtained his ham radio operator license, built two stock Jeep wranglers that could climb a vertical wall, design furniture, and started two businesses. He loved taking Mandy and the girls camping in Cloud Croft, winning game night against Joe and Joanna, and golfing with Zoe and Tom. He bonded with Matt over their knowledge of cigars, gaining a new family and the honorary name “Tio Micah.”
Micah is survived by his wife, Mandy; two daughters, Aailey Beth and Addilyn “Addy May”; parents, Don, and Gina Haislett; grandfather, Bill Taylor; sisters, Megan (Jared) Swopes and Mallary (Justin) Heupel; uncles, David (Susan) and Doug (Deidre); numerous cousins, nephews, and nieces; and just to name a few best friends, Joe and Joanna Evans, Matt Matta, and Ashley Zeigler.
Pallbearers will be Matt Matta, Lorenzo Sanchez, Ronnie Scrogum, Brian Bell, Doug Haislett, Jared Swopes, Thomas Rupp, and Willard Vaughn.
The family would like to sincerely thank all our dearest friends and extended family for your support and outpouring of love during this difficult time. We can’t thank you enough for checking on us, bringing food, donating, helping with the girls, and giving words of encouragement.
