We are deeply saddened to learn of Aaron's passing. He was the Administrator for Lighthouse Rehabilitation from 1984-1992 (currently Lighthouse Vocational Services). Aaron was a pleasure to work with. He said, “The best part of the job was helping those who needed help” and lived by example. He had a great work ethic, was kind and beloved by those who knew him. We will always appreciate and remember the strides made during his tenure, to make Lighthouse, all that it can be. May you rest in peace and may your family find comfort in the Lord and cherish the wonderful memories made over the years.
With Deepest Sympathy,
Lighthouse Vocational Services
