Obituary: DESMOND, AARON

Aaron Desmond1974 ~ 2013Our beloved son, brother, father, and friend Aaron Desmond, age 39, passed away unexpectedly at home Thursday morning June 27, 2013 in Salt Lake City, UT. Aaron was born in Salt Lake City, UT on February 23, 1974 to loving parents, Michael G. and Gwen I. Desmond. Aaron attended American Fork High School where he was an avid trombone player in the marching band. After graduation, he passionately served an LDS mission to Tokyo, Japan. Aaron was a skilled electrician who enjoyed working with his hands and solving problems. He had a sharp mind and a quick wit. He was an incredibly compassionate person. If he had only a dollar in his pocket and the shirt on his back, he'd give you both. He loved his family and the many hours spent together with him watching movies, spouting philosophy, telling jokes, quoting movies lines or doing puzzles will be sorely missed. More than anything in this world, Aaron loved his sons. He'd spend hours reading to them, playing games with them and building toys with them. He taught them to rock out to Flogging Molly, how to ride a motorcycle and how to make cookies. A broken egg on the counter meant nothing to the time spent with his little boys. Aaron is survived by his sons, Ciaran Aaron and Cabhan Jason, his parents, Michael G. and Gwen I. Desmond, his siblings, Jason, Beckie Heinzig (Kurt), and Jacob (Kristi), and many nieces and nephews, Grandparents Dolores Pomeroy (Barry), Melissa Robertson, June and Gale Desmond. Aaron, we will miss your smile, your jokes and your contagious goofy laugh.Services will be held on Monday, July 1, 2013 at 11:00 a.m. at the Alpine 6th LDS Ward Chapel, 901 East Village Way in Alpine.
