Aaron was a devoted father to Connor and Caitlin. He and Connor shared a love for tools and new inventions. Aaron loved encouraging Caitlin’s artistic aspirations and proudly displayed her creations. Married in 2018, Aaron and Colleen shared so much joy and many dreams for their future. Together, they enjoyed discovering new local restaurants, going to the farmers market and cooking. Family was very important to Aaron. Aaron looked forward to Friday Movie Nights and Donut Sundays with Connor, Caitlin and Colleen.

I am praying for all the family in this time of need. Aaron was a very special childhood friend.
Aaron was a bright, creative man who loved his family. I am so sorry for your loss and our family have been keeping you in our prayers. May the Peace of God shower you with His love.
You will be truly missed my friend. Coming to Omaha every fall will now have a empty feeling. Rest In Peace my friend.
Although I never met Aaron, I know his parents well and grieve for them and the tremendous loss of their dear son whom they loved so very much!! Along with so many family and friends, I extend my deepest condolences and will continue to lift the Cass family up to HIM as they walk through this deep valley of sorrow.
