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.

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.
