He lived ready... Aaron S. Williams, 29, passed away February 4, 2010 following a long, proud and fierce battle with kidney cancer. A valiant warrior, he lived his life with graceful purpose. Diagnosed with cancer at the age of 16, Aaron deliberately marched to the beat of a different drum, defying all medical odds to graduate from Brentwood Christian High School in 1999 and the University of Texas in 2004 with a degree in Electrical Engineering. His talents were employed as a Research Engineer at U.T.'s Center for Electro-Mechanics. Aaron taught us how to live. His indomitable spirit, unwavering obsession for Star Wars and gaming, selfless love for family and friends, and contagious passion for Christ inspired all.

Aaron's wild & crazy driving skills

I have lots of great memories of Aaron but the ones that stand out the most are the driving experiences that we shared. Aaron used to drive me & Choi around before either one of us had a driver's license. There was one time in particular where we were at a red light & after realizing that he was not in the turn lane he proceeded to reverse in the middle of the expressway in order to get into the turn lane. Several times he showed us his skill of driving without his hands. I also vaguely remember him accidentally backing into something & saying something like "No worries, I'm sure my car is fine." And on he went with his day while me & Choi were in the backseat freaking out. Choi insists that Aaron only drove this way with people that he liked and felt comfortable with. Looking back I think he enjoyed scaring me & Choi and got some good laughs out of it. =)

And I just now remembered the car that he used to drive us around in....his old beige Honda which had some black Star Wars symbols (?) painted on the hood by no one other than his sister! hahaha...Are there any pictures of that car? Good times, for sure!
