My heart is heavy as I try to say goodbye to such a bright and amazing young man. Aaron- you have always been a character, and are always trying to bring a smile and humor into our day. I only wish I would have seen your pain behind the mask that you wore, and maybe you would still be here today? We will miss you and always love you, but will never forget you. I know that you are with your mom Christy today, and that brings a smile to my face. Your memory will live on and we will love you forever. Until we meet again, know that you are deeply missed. Love you! The Voight Family (Aunt Linda, Uncle Voighter, Eric & Melissa)

Aaron- You're truly a one of a kind friend, you always kept us laughing. Whether we were writing raps at Eastbay, composing cartoon strips at East High, or getting busted with beer at my dorm in Madison, it always was fresh and fun being around you. I miss you, and regret losing touch. Thanks so much for the memories, and my best to the Frank family. Love, E.L. Peckham

Maestro, Spectaculous, Mr. Frank, Truly one of the most intelligently funny people I've known. I was lucky enough to meet you through mutual friends, to work with you at Inn on the Park, and to travel with you to Panama City (I'll always remember the sun poisoning :D ) You were one of a kind and you will be missed. My deep condolences go out to the Frank family. Sincerely, Tim Black

Aaron, Simply said, you made everything more interesting, including our senior prom. I will always admire your bold choice for our pre-dance meal -- Tri-City Family Restaurant. It makes me laugh to this day. You were an amazing person, and you left us far too soon, my friend. My thoughts go out to the family.

Aaron...'Maestro' was a great friend of mine throughout high school and college. I regret that I hadn't been in touch with him for some time. I missed him. The comments here don't surprise me. Aaron was funny, so smart, engaging and a good friend. I'll never forget the great times we had...MKE, Madison, Wausau, Panama City. Aaron, I'm so glad that you were a part of my life. You were exceptional. Your friend, Meats.

Jack Mitchell left a message on March 9, 2011:
I am sure I am not the only one asking what more I could have done to help Aaron. He was a student in one of my classes at the University of Wisconsin. Few young men had more going for them than Aaron. He was smarter than most, more creative, more sensitive, and more charming. Everyone seemed to recognize that except Aaron himself. Those of us who remember him in the journalism school are very saddened by this news and send our condolences to his family and friends.

Oh why that's what we keep asking, was there anything we could have said or done, oh we had no clue you were masking a troubled soul, god only knows what went wrong and why you'd leave the stage in the middle of a song.-Why by Rascal Flatts. Aaron, I worked with you for 6 months and got to know what a smart and funny person you were. It is so tragic to see you go. There are so many questions left unanswered. Rest in peace and I will see you again one day.

Aaron – You were such a beautiful soul and you leave everyone with so many great memories. Some memories we will always cherish are: • The six year old boy who ran around all summer long with his socks pulled up over his knees • Your “Beavis and Butthead” phase • Watching you play H-O-R-S-E in the driveway of Stuart Ct. with Grandpa Sonny until you couldn’t see the basket anymore • The guy who made us laugh hysterically at family gatherings We love you and will miss you always! May you find peace and rest… Love, The Roou Family (Aunt Tammy, Uncle Greg and Matthew)
