In the winter of 2018, Aaron purchased a maintenance contracting business in Kelowna, BC, where he made his permanent home.

    To Bernie and Lorne, as parents, we don’t know the depth of your sorrow. To Lianne, as siblings we do. There are never any words adequate enough to convey our deepest feelings for you all. The miles kept us strangers with Aaron but not distant enough to miss the pride and joy Aaron brought to your lives. He will never be forgotten, your Son, your Brother.

  • Joseph O'Brien says:

    So sorry  for your loss. I loved Aaron’s energetic and enthusiastic spirit. He was a great conversationalist and fun to be around. My heart breaks that Edward will grow up not having his “cool older cousin” Aaron and that he will miss all the fun times I know they would have had. When I teach Edward how to jet-ski,  will let him know that Aaron taught me how to jet-ski on the lake. 

  • Colette Chamulka says:

Although no words can express the pain I know you must be going through, I pray the love and joy that Aaron brought you over the years will help you through these agonizing times knowing that he will never be forgotten. With my deepest heartfelt condolences and love to you all.
