My family and I are heartbroken at Aron's passing. I know all who knew and loved him have broken hearts as well. His unfailing good humor and appetite for hard work made him a delight to teach, and his generous spirit made him a favorite of my family, Laura, Jack, and Chandler. We admired his courage under adversity and respected his commitment to life and to living under all circumstances, good, bad, and in between. We loved him. We mourn his passing. We will remember him with a smile always.

My deepest sympathy on the loss of Aron. I knew him from his days as a History major and student worker in the department at Mizzou. He was more than that, though; he was a dear friend, whose compassion and kindness set him apart. He loved his son, Gage, and we knew he drove home to Trenton every weekend to be with him. My son, Joe, was a few years older than Gage, and we had many conversations about raising sons, revving cars, and spoiling dogs. Aron was one of the greatest comics and mimics I've ever encountered, and he would have us all in tears at his imitations of characters we all knew. Even when he wasn't feeling well, he never lost that sense of humor. He will live forever in my memory, and I mourn his loss with you.
