Cpt. Aaron Roy Blanchard

Friday, May 03, 2013
My thoughts and prayers are with your family. I first met Aaron when he was in high school and a member of the Community Band. He was so much fun to have around bringing life and energy to the band. The trip to Switzerland was a highlight of my life and Aaron was a part of that experience. (I do remember somehow he was wrestling around and ended up wearing a band-aide over his nose for most of the trip) I enjoyed the early morning nature walks we took in Davos with Aaron and his grampa Dick Shactler.. I am sure that was a very special trip for him to take with his Grampa! In the summers when he was home, often saw Aaron at our summer band concerts and at that time very much a Marine! After reading the obituary, I realize how many things he was active in and how many people he influenced during his life. Freedom is certainly not free and Aaron made the ultimate sacrifice for the country he was so passionate for. RIP Aaron, until we meet again. Connie Stenhoff
