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.

Remembering a beautiful time

We first really met Aaron at Adam and Choi's wedding. We knew him, by reputation, before that through the many stories Choi shared with Kristin at USAFA.
Two things struck us at the wedding. Adam and Choi's love for each other AND the obvious bond between Aaron and Choi. He was like her "guardian angel brother" throughout. Aaron always had one eye on Choi and seemed to anticipate her every need. The love and respect between them was amazing! It was truly a thing of beauty.
We know that Aaron will continue to be Choi's "guardian angel brother"...only now, in the very real sense.
Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you all. You will always be in our hearts.
With love
Bob and Judy
