I remember Mr. Ahrens well. I graduated from Vogel 1958. He was well liked by myself and many other students. My condolences go out to his family.
HEARTFELT SYMPATHY COMING TO YOU FROM A COOL FLORIDA ALSO THIS MORNING AND HOPING YOU ARE WEATHERING THE WEATHER THERE AND SEVERE LOSS. GOD BLESS AND KEEP YOU ALL IN HIS CARE. SINCERELY, JEAN S. RINGHAM
Mr Ahrens was an inspiration to me and my brothers. We all attended Vogel in the 60s and I will never forget his compassion for all the students. Now my grandchildren attend Vogel. My thoughts and prayers will be with all of you.
We are thinking of you at this difficult time. You have our deepest sympathy.

Condolences to the family. It was great to see Mr. Aarens and his wife at our Vogel Class of '61 reunion last year. Him along with Mr. Bedwell and Mr. Reed and their wifes, all seemed to have a good time.
I was impressed with Mr. Aarens obit. He had a very interresting and busy life. I don't know when he ever had time to sleep.
The one thing that always came to my mind when I heard his name was something he said a lot in his Science class. "There's 3 ways to do things, the right way, the wrong way, and my way." He was a pretty hip teacher and kept up with the students and their street lingo.
I can see him now in his Science class at Vogel, standing behind his lab table, next to the Vacuum Bell with a Bunsen Burner lit.
RIP Mr. Aarons.
