Aaron Dover was born in Gorman on Jan. 15, 1934, to Verlee Robertson Dover and Devoe Dover, the middle child of three children and the only son. He grew up in Carbon and in 1951 moved to Stephenville, where he graduated from Stephenville High School the same year. He served in the Air Force from 1954 to 1956. He attended Tarleton State College from 1956 to 1957 where he met Wilma Jean Sherrard. They were married at First United Methodist Church in Hico on July 7, 1957.

During this time he and the family lived in Fort Worth twice, San Antonio, Stephenville and Aledo, where he served as mayor, while he worked as an engineer at Kelly Air Force Base in San Antonio and General Dynamics in Fort Worth. He retired early in 1980 due to disability from rheumatoid arthritis and eventually moved to De Cordoba Bend in 1995. Aaron was a member of Acton United Methodist Church.
