Here lies AHARON son of Reb Avraham Layb

=============================================
'Reb' is an honorific; it does not mean rabbi.

His father had a double Hebrew name. Avraham is Hebrew for Abraham, and Layb is Yiddish for lion. Some men (certainly not all) with the name Layb have a secular name such as Leo, Leon, etc.
