I’m saddened to hear about this loss. My condolences go out to Aaron’s friends and family. I worked closely with Aaron for many years when I was working in Logistics at Stryker. He was a super guy to work with. He saved our butts many times when we needed Kenco to perform a delivery miracle for us. My thoughts are with you at this difficult time.

This was depressing to hear. I worked with Aaron quite a bit through the Kenco/Stryker connection. He was always so accomodating and we often shared a laugh about the crazy requests we were asked to accomplish. He took his job seroiusly and constantly exceeded our expectations. I’ll miss chatting with him and send condolences to his family. He truly was a great guy!

My condolences to the family. I haven’t seen Aaron in many years but we were football teammates in high school. He was our quarterback and was level-headed, tough, competitive and a great teammate. Rest in peace, Aaron.

I am so sad to hear of Aarons passing. I remember when he started at Kenco we worked very close and always had lots of laughs and he even shared his awesome Chicken Noodle soup recipe with me, I couldn’t make it as well as him for sure. Its been a great pleasure to have known him and he will be missed by a lot of people. Rest in peace my dear friend I will never forget you.
