Re: Important

I vaguely remember someone putting on a small pink t shirt at the VFW during WF one year, wasn't it him he did on a dare?

I just do not have the words. I am just glad that he was involved with a group of people that loved him so much.

Re: Important

Even though he never drank, he still made the drive to Chicago for Brewfest. He made the drive with Brad and the guys out to Missouri to join in on Festfest at my place....wish I could find the pic from that, he was at Redbird for the inaugural "fried bacon heart attack" trip (and many more!), he made it to PigGig at Jim's.......he made it happen. Whether it was in person or on the boards postwhoring it up with his 21,000+ posts, he was active in our club and ALL of its activities. He could take a joke and not get pissed off (too bad ) like the time we replaced his grill with one that looked like teeth with the missing tooth (nice work Josh!). Lots of memories over the years.....thanks Flex, you will be missed buddy.



Some see this as a silly online jeep club.........we are more than that, we are like family.

Re: Important

I don't really know what to say. He was one of the first guys I met at WF 2010. It deserves to be said again, he truly made the best out of a shitty situation and that's something that I have learned from him. Such a good dude that will be missed by a lot of people.

A few of us got together last night to try and let this sink in some, and we all said the same thing.

Crazy, I just saw him in his Subaru at Dog N Suds (car show) in Greenwood two weeks ago. He had a line of people waiting to talk to him! Awesome guy!!!!

Re: Important

I have known Aaron all of my life. We grew up about a mile from each other in a small town. Aaron was one of the best human beings I have ever known. He introduced me to when I started modifying my jeep, he was always willing to help me figure out what was going wrong with whatever I was doing on the heap. Hell he gave me my front two points and hide-a-hitch for my wedding present. It's going to be hard driving the heap around for a bit. I ****ing love you brother.

I had only met Aaron a handful of times, but he was one of the kindest and most optimistic people I will ever meet. Truly some one who had a positive impact on everyone he met.
See you one day man!

Re: Important

I haven't felt this broken hearted in a long time. I can't seem to recover from the shock, I haven't been able to find any words. I never realized the impact he made on my life or what he meant to my little family. We had more adventures planned and they wont be the same without him.

Without you guys here in the MWC I would of never known one of my favorite people of all time. Thanks guys
