GILFORD - Jared Mitchell Aronson, age 34, of Gilford, New Hampshire passed away on Thursday, March 29, 2018, at Lakes Region General Hospital surrounded by his loving family. Jared was born in Laconia, New Hampshire the beloved son of Mark and Leslie Aronson. He attended Gilford High School until he graduated his senior year. After high school, he went on to be a creative entrepreneur, one with an imagination that led to a tee-shirt business, the invention of customized parts for wheelchairs, computer parts and whatever else he could think up in his ever-turning mind.
"Laughter is life." Three words that never held so much truth; at least for Jared and for those he laughed with, usually at the mercy of his wit. His raw creativity opened up a much greater part of his world to us, providing a small glimpse of his massive genius. But, his most powerful talent didn't come by way of pencil lines and canvas. He knew how to love more than most. He was brilliant in observation, soaking in details around him that most people would never notice. And with this, kindness poured from him.
Uncensored and well-spoken, witty and welcoming; Jared knew no boundaries, except for the ones he crossed over with a tricky smile. Seated, he stood so tall, testing his limits with four small wheels and a ferocious appetite for adventure.
If you looked close enough, you might have noticed Jared was in a wheelchair; and those who did catch on soon forgot it was there at all. He devoured rooms with his presence and not a muscle in his body kept him from seeing the world, leaving behind a roar of laughter and a love so strong it changed the course of lives around him.
To Jared, "life" was just a word; a descriptor. It was an alignment of his senses. Because how he lived, no word could describe. No word would be just or fair. He was groundless and free; a coincidence of particles that tried to bind him but failed to. Because he was love and he was laughter. And because, Jared was life.
Jared is survived by his parents, Mark and Leslie Aronson of Gilford, New Hampshire; brothers and sisters, Scott and Doria Aronson, Brooke and Brad McCreedy, Seth and Meghan Aronson, Avi Aronson, and Sydney and Chris McKenzie; nieces and nephews, Rocco Aronson, Nico Aronson, Jack McCreedy, Griffin McCreedy, and Grace McCreedy. Jared was predeceased by his grandparents, Benjamin and Gwen Shanker, and by his paternal grandparents, Morton "Berry" and Ruth Aronson.
