Aaron was a very caring and concerned individual that never met a stranger who was deeply loved by all who knew him and his zest for life inspired many. Although Ataxia took its toll, he faced it bravely head-on retaining his sense of humor and dignity. He loved fishing, hunting, music, good Cajun food and sunbathing. He was happy most when in the company of family and friends.
The family wishes to extend a heartfelt thanks to the following Doctors and their loving staff; Dr. Christopher Paris, Dr. David Vargas, Dr. Sudha Mardia and Dr. Jennifer Greco, along with his wonderful caregivers, present and past.
In lieu of flowers, donations to Friederich’s Ataxia Research Alliance preferred.
Chauvin Funeral Home is honored to serve the Acosta family.
