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.

One of the woman in our Bible Study group gave me a remembrance of Aaron written by her elementary-age son. Aaron spent some time with the three Hocher boys at our last camp out. He made quite an impression with John it seems. I'll scan it in later, but in case the pencil and notebook paper doesn't show up well, here is the text...
Aaron was a very tall and strong man. I still remember when he showed my brothers how to chop wood. The wood got stuck on the ax. He brought it up in the air and smashed it on the ground. It split into two pieces. It was totally wicked! -By John Hocher
