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.

The Test

When Aaron heard that his sister, Choi was interested in a young man at the Air Force Academy he sat down and wrote up a test to be taken by anyone wanting to date his sister, some of it was pretty hilarious. Aaron always had a way of letting you knew he cared through his humor. He was a joy to be around, you never knew what was going to come out of his mouth next. It was an honor to him.

  1. A little snippet of the interchange below ;)

    "Hello Adam,

    This Aaron, Choi's brother. Here are some questions to help us get to know you beter. Don't think of it so much as an application. The decisions are Choi's to make, but we will always support her in any way we can. When you finish them you can send them back to me at this address. And you can ask Choi to fill this out too.

    Look forward to getting to know you.


    PS I love Choi very much. If you are good to her we will get along just fine no matter where the relationship ends up."

    And for those of you who attended the memorial service and are wondering about the cheese question... here it is :)

    "9. Do you like cheese? If so, how much? If not, explain."

    Adam's answer: "Yes, but not alone. I really like cheese quesadillas, and queso, and chicken cordon bleu, and fondue. The really nice thing about cheese though is the pure variety available. Much like a good wine, good cheese shines during different times, situations, and accompanying food. Some mornings you wake up and want a Swiss cheese omelet, others a cheddar. As if the nature cheeses weren’t enough, Velveeta can at times bring mac and cheese to die for, not to mention powder cheese for Kraft."

    Music to Aaron's ears, I think ;)
