Aaron J. Buckenmeyer

Aaron J. Buckenmeyer, age 36, of Swanton, Ohio, passed away in his home, Saturday evening, December 12, 2020. He was born in Toledo, Ohio on May 15th, 1984 to Louis “Abe” and Jenni (Silcox) Buckenmeyer. Aaron attended Swanton High School and was incredibly bright.

Aaron went onto travel the world selling cleaning products and proudly stated “I can speak enough in seven different languages to sell a product.” He was an excellent salesman and connected with people easily. Aaron made friends anywhere he went through his humor and silliness. He enjoyed meeting people from all over the world and hearing their stories. On his many travels he met Megumi (Masui) in Guam. Later the two married, and they have two beautiful sons together, Liam and Shea. Aaron had many hidden talents. He was an amazing cook and could create savory dishes with minimal ingredients. He also had an incredible memory which served him well not only academically, but also in his line of work. Aaron was an avid Buckeye and Browns football fan as well. In his free time, Aaron enjoyed making art and doing crafts with his niece LeeAnn. They also enjoyed eating any type of sour candy together. You could always find Aaron listening to music. He loved showing people new songs and found peace in music.

Left to cherish Aaron’s memory is his wife, Megumi; children; Liam and Shea Buckenmeyer; father, Abe Buckenmeyer; mother and best friend Jenni Buckenmeyer; sister, Amy (Jesse) Bates; niece, LeeAnn Bates; nephew, Ezekiel Bates; sister, Heather (fiancé Benjamin Forster) Buckenmeyer; grandma, Joan Silcox; as well as several aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Aaron was preceded in death by his maternal grandfather; Jack Silcox and paternal grandparents; Joe and Ilo Buckenmeyer.

Public visitation will be held Friday, December 18th from 3 to 7 p.m. at Weigel Funeral Home, 204 Chestnut St. in Swanton (419.826.2631). Services will be private for the family.

Memorial contributions may be directed to the family.

Your witty humor and off the wall silliness will never be forgotten. A child at heart who was beautifully eccentric, now you are truly free. I will never forgot all that we have been through. I will cherish every experience we encountered in this life together. I see you as a huge fiery comet, a shooting star. Everyone stops, points up and gasps Oh look at that! Then whoosh, and youre gone...and theyll never see anything like you ever again...and they wont be able to forget you(Jim Morrison, The Doors). Rest easy now cousin. Love you always and forever,
Brooks aka Booty
