Aaron Bjorn Waag passed away on Jan. 5, 2011 in Bremerton, Wash. He was 28.

He was born on Nov. 10, 1982 in Bremerton, Wash., to John and Teresa Waag. He graduated from the Academy Northwest. He worked for 11 years in tree service and climbing, currently with Waag Tree Service. He enjoyed supporting the Boy Scouts of America and other charitable needs in the community.

Aaron was passionate about life, family and his friends. He loved his wife Ashley and daughter Abigail more than words can express. Aaron had a strong quiet faith that was proven in all of his relationships; he lived it out with each and every person he knew. He called his dad and brothers the best friends a guy could have and he would encourage everyone to just get along and be friends.

Aaron was an avid outdoorsman, more comfortable up a tree or in a boat than anywhere else. He loved to hunt and fish and hike with his family and his many best friends, you all know who you are.
