Skyland ~ Robert "Carey" Aiken, 79, entered into eternal rest, on Tuesday, April 26, 2005, after an extended illness.

Born in Brevard, North Carolina on October 11, 1925, he was the son of the late Huey Canaro Aiken and Daisy Snelson Aiken.
Carey opened and built Aiken's Supermarket on Highway 25 in Skyland, which was the first supermarket of that type in the Skyland/Arden area for many years. After his retirement he entered into sales and worked with
Electrolux for several years, which kept him in touch with many people. Carey belonged to the Masonic Lodge in Hendersonville. He was a U.S. Navy Veteran serving during WW II and was a member of Pole Creek Baptist Church in Candler.

Mr. Aiken is survived by two daughters, Karen Mullinax and husband Lew of Fleetwood, NC, and Linda McCarson and husband Joe of Candler; four granddaughters, Tracie Foster, Heather Herman, Margo Mullinax and Melissa McCarson; one grandson, Derrick McCarson; great-grandchildren, Kendal and Grace Foster; two sisters, Virginia Grossman and husband Irv of Oak Ridge, TN and Betty Ann Pace; two brothers, Mack H. Aiken and wife Elsie and Hugh Aiken and wife Josie all of Hendersonville; eighteen nieces and nephews.
