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.

Unlce Sam with his nephews

While he may not have been related to me by blood, Aaron was still family to me.

He was so disappointed he wasn't able to come and see the boys in the hospital when they were born because of his relapse at that time, so we came right after we were released and came to see him. As you can see, it made him very happy.

  1. When I turned the pictures in to be developed after your visit... the photo tech had taken the liberty of making up mock birth announcements with this picture. Funny stuff.

    Happy 5th Birthday to the boys today!!!
