Aaron "FlexdXJ" Thompson

It's once again with a heavy heart that I announce has lost another well known member. Aaron passed away this morning unexpectedly. He was a member of the Midwest Chapter, but was always at the SEC's Cherokee Crawl and supported our chapter just as much as he did his own. I had the pleasure of meeting Aaron when I attended my first Crawl about 5 years ago, and we've become very good friends since, talking on an almost daily basis. For those who didn't know, Aaron was dealt a pretty rough hand in life and overcame a lot. He never let his disability stop him from getting out and enjoying the things he loved. A lesson that I think we can all learn from him.

Please keep Aaron's friends & family in your thoughts and prayers as they get through this difficult time.

Details on arrangements to follow once they're announced.

Also, I'm personally collecting funds to be donated directly to his family for expenses. If you'd like to donate just send me a PM.

Re: Aaron "FlexdXJ" Thompson

It took my breath when I heard this news. He was an amazing example of the 'keep your head up and live your life' spirit that we would all do well to imitate.

RIP.

Re: Aaron "FlexdXJ" Thompson

he will be missed by everyone who ever met him and many who don't even know who he was. Aaron would go to the end of the world for someone who needed his help, but never expected anything from others when he was in need. I can only hope that he knew the friends he had here would have done anything for him.

Aaron-- you will be missed.

Re: Aaron "FlexdXJ" Thompson

Andy is driving up tomorrow I believe.

We'll either be heading up tomorrow afternoon or evening, depending on when Josh gets done with his race.

Edit: Also working on planning a Saturday Morning breakfast with Brad, Molly, Byron..etc at Aaron's favorite place in Columbus. I'll post details on that tonight.
