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.

CEM chili cookoff

Here is Aaron sampling chili at last year's May 2009 CEM chili cookoff. Some folks tasted them one at a time. Others, like Aaron, collected a sample from each pot and then sat down to try them one, by one. (My chili won first place by the way!)
Left-to-right after Aaron is Tim Beets, John Nodler, Robert Pearsall (background), and Colin Beal.
Everyone had a great time!
