Aaron Jacob Ferreira was born on April 4, 1982 as a tenderhearted boy, and lived his life led by that very tender heart until his passing on February 28, 2014 at the age of 31.
Known for his quick wit and boisterous laugh, Aaron always knew just what to say to bring about a smile in others. He will always be remembered for his gentle nature, his undeniable sense of humor and his ability to talk to anyone. Aaron gave the best hugs and wasn't afraid to show you he loved you. His charm, heart and ever-so-special ways will be greatly missed.
Aaron is survived by his mother, Laura T. Martin and her husband Robbie, father Frank Ferreira and his wife Jackie, sister Kristin and her husband Patrick Guyett, little sister Mary Grace, nephews Blake and Cooper and his beloved dog Funch. He leaves behind grandparents, Raymond and Ruth Thompson and Ann and Dick Welch, aunts, uncles and cousins.
A special thank you to The Teague's, of Hanford and the Walk On Tile family of Los Angeles for their love.
Aaron's life, while short, was lived in a very full way. He did many things, met so many people and marched to his very own beat. He had a soft spot for family and friends, music, volleyball and animals. He especially loved going to Giants games with his dad. He could relate to people of all walks of life and had the ability to playfully banter, giving many a telemarketer a run for their money.
Aaron's memory will live on through all who knew and loved him. He surely touched more hearts than he ever realized. It is for this reason that Aaron's family would like to remind all those who knew him, to never ever doubt the personal impact you can make on others, nor the positive impact you make in this world. Even the simplest of gestures or a kind word, can make a big difference in someone else's life. For each soul blessed to be here is valuable, and we all need each other.
A celebration of Aaron's life will be held at 6 p.m. on Friday, April 4, 2014 at First Baptist Church in Hanford.
Aaron's family asks those wishing to honor him, do so by making a donation to your local SPCA or simply by waving to an otter.
Aaron would like that.
