Aarion was born and raised in Kamloops. He moved to the lower mainland, then returned home to Kamloops. Aarion’s goal in life was to always excel at what he did, always doing his best. He will be remembered for his ability to make others laugh and making others feel good by using small gestures with big meanings. Aarion loved music, camping at East Barriere Lake, baseball, playing practical jokes (mostly on his sister), dirt bike riding, scuba diving, video games, Dad and son bike rides, long drives and animals. He loved his cookies and coca-cola. Aarion’s best moments in life were the times spent with family and close friends.
The Celebration of Aarion’s life will take place at 1:00 pm on Saturday, March 14, 2020 in the Kamloops Funeral Home, 285 Fortune Drive.
The family would prefer casual dress. Memorial donations in Aarion’s name may be made to the Canadian Mental Health Association.
