Aaron stopped me at work when I switched departments and thanked me for all I did for him; to that point, nobody had ever done thatI was hugely impressed and impacted by his character and humility from that day on. What a great, genuine, hard-working person. The world is less complete without him.

I had the pleasure of working with Aaron on many projects over the years. He would call me quite often for bids on projects or to buy or get rid of material. We would chat a bit and have a few laughs and then go on about our day. He always answered my calls as I did his. We had a mutual respect for each other and our professions. We worked well together and I always knew that I could count on him. Aaron I will miss your friendship my friend, you will truly be missed.
