An avid fisherman, Aaron was the founding member of Striper Slayers of Maine. Over the years, he built the community of likeminded fisherman to over one thousand members. He was a family man. His time not spent fishing was spent with his family and friends. He was the first person to help out a "brother" in their time of need.
Aaron most recently worked for Wright Express where he excelled in their Customer Service Department. He was a mentor to newly hired employees, if you had a question, Aaron likely had the answer. He was adored and respected by all.
Aaron enjoyed all sports, especially football. His passion for Fantasy Football ran deep. He was pretty good at it as well. He would be sure to remind you of his many championship seasons. As a spectator, he had recently become involved in auto racing with his Dad. Aaron was a proud dog owner. His dog Bella was his shadow. If you saw Aaron, you saw his Bella Boos.
Above all, Aaron was a dedicated father. His daughter Juliana JJ Wiggles, as he called her, was his pride and joy. You would often hear him speaking of all the plans he had with her for the future. He spoiled his baby girl, but not rotten.
