Aaron was a soldier for Christ, he ran the race until the end. He was a reminder of how Christians should live there life, and that we need to be ready for when that day comes when we meet our maker. I had the honor of working with Aaron at our church for the past 10 years, he was one of the most humble and sincere men I’ve ever met. I looked forward to spending time with him on our many projects and most of all his friendship. I pray I will see you again one day my faithful brother.

Although Aaron and I lived vastly different lives as adults, we spent many years of our unstable childhoods together, he was my little brother, and in spite of our differing world views, I still loved and cared about him.

In addition to our mother and brother David Schempp, Aaron also left behind our younger half brother Eric Ledington. Sadly, the only time the four of us were ever together was the evening that our father, Arthur W. Schempp, died in January 2013, and for just a few days after. Nevertheless, Aaron and Eric corresponded frequently and were both looking forward to Eric’s son Austin (who also enlisted in the Navy) finally getting to meet his Uncle Aaron when his ship docks in Norfolk a little later this year. Unfortunately, that won’t happen now, and that saddens us.

Aaron, I know that Dad loved you very much, he was proud of your accomplishments, and he would have been devastated by your premature passing. You left this earth far too soon, and I know there was more you wanted to do. Now you will live on in our hearts and memories.

And if there is an afterlife, please send my love to all of our family members and kitties that got there before you. Rest well, little brother, and know that you were loved.
