Aaron was one of my favorite clients. He made every meeting fun. He loved is family deeply and was the best to just sit and talk to. He had great collections and even better stories to share. I have missed our conversations and I am heartbroken for all that knew him and miss him. Rosanne, I’m so incredibly sorry for your loss. Sending lots of love and strength your way.

My dad meant the world to me. We have so many memories that I will always cherish. You taught me so much in life. The assignment notebook you told me everyday faithfully TREAT IT LIKE A FINE PIECE OF JEWELRY. The blinking eyes that’s when I knew you were mad. Taking me to get ice cream. The one think you would never forget is the basket a wooden basket mind you I put it in the oven. I could go on and on. I want to thank you for everything you did for me.I miss you so much but I know your in a better place. You will always have a place in my heart you will never be forgotten i love you very much it’s never goodbye it’s I will see you on the other side love your one and only daughter

Aaron grew up just a street away from us. He would come to our house in the evenings and we would talk and play chess, usually for hours. He got better and better, and it was such great fun. Then he got his law degree, married and moved away. However, whenever he came back to our town to visit his parents and friends, he would stop in for a game or two or three....
Aaron was not just a friend. He shared joy.

I never had many cases with Aaron but the few I had amply proved that he was a dedicated and crafty advocate for his client. He will be sorely missed in the community of attorneys.

I was Aaron's court reporter. We started together. He was an intern with Bill Gartenberg and I was interning with my mother as a court reporter. He always used me or my service throughout his career. He was nice and always respectful. He was always immaculately dressed. He was prepared for his cases and always covered as much as he needed to cover.
He would sit down and talk to me as a person before and after depositions, which I would appreciate.
I one time put stamps on his envelope and he was thrilled because he said he was a stamp collector. From then on, I put stamps on all is envelopes and every time I put a stamp on an envelope to a lawyer today, I think of Aaron's passion.
I lost a job one day when my machine was stolen. He was kind and considerate and told me about the time he lost a file.
I have the fondest memories of Aaron. I am glad he was a part of my life.

Aaron and I first met in middle school, and we were friends ever since. While we had Chess in common through High School, after that our interests and conversations centered on our educations, careers, and families. Aaron was smart and funny, laughed often, and was always good company. He was a wonderful man and a great friend, and I will miss him. Our condolences to Rosanne and her family, Debbie and her family, and Aaron’s Mother Eileen.
