AKA Legacy is an organization established in the memory of Aramenta and Arthur Kirkpatrick in 2005 envisioned by their daughters Ariane Kirkpatrick Couch and Amonica Kirkpatrick Davis. Ariane and Amonica felt it was important to continue their parents legacy through  philanthropic services including scholarships, community service and various giving opportunities. Arthur Kirkpatrick was a successful car salesman for many years in Cleveland, Ohio and a member of the professional singing group, The Five Quails. Aramenta Kirkpatrick was an educator for Warrensville Heights City Schools. She was an esteemed leader in her professional and personal life. Both were avid believers in giving back to their communities.
