Condolences and prayers to your family. I remember “Coop” from his days in my classes at Forest Hills Eastern High School. He was a quiet, but quick witted and very humorous person. I really enjoyed getting to know him and felt privileged that he let me into his circle. We had some really fun times together in the weight/fitness room. He embraced challenges I put before him usually with a reluctant smile.
Even though I hadn’t seen him in years, he left a mark on me as an educator. Coop will be missed.

First, my condolences to Aaron's family. I knew Aaron or "Coop" from high school at Forest Hills Eastern. My memories were specifically from our time in band class with Mr. Boelkins. He was someone who was quiet and reserved but someone everyone knew. He cared a lot about his sisters specifically. Aaron was just one of those "nice" guys you appreciated because he didn't have to be anyone else but himself. He will be missed.

This week I lost my son who became beyond son and closer to best friend. Going to movies was Aaron's favorite things to do with friends and family . Getting popcorn that we shared and 2 pops. Sharing the movie and of course the lively conversation. Never forget a movie him and I went to and kid stole his drink. Aaron in his all loving way said kids parents couldn't afford and asked if we could share my nasty diet after the movie the parent apologized and offered to pay the ridiculous fee aaron being who he was said no but buy the kid some candy at the store for the trip. I was amazed at his grumpy loving spirit. He always gave quietly.
