In Remembrance of “Uncle Geek”


Aaron Lawrence Stones
Feb. 21, 1982 — June 28, 2010

Our kind, loving, gentle and wonderful son, brother, uncle and friend died Monday, June 28, 2010 in his home in Denver. He was 28.

Aaron was born in Prescott, Arizona on February 21, 1982 to Larry and Margaret (Baker) Stones. He was a happy and precocious child. He loved He-Man and wearing capes of all colors.

His family settled in Longmont when he was six. He attended Niwot High School where he excelled in drama and was known for his delightful sense of humor. He received his Eagle Scout award and his Duty to God award. He also graduated from LDS Seminary with four years of perfect attendance.

Aaron always loved music and played the guitar, banjo and kazoo. He was a talented artist and enjoyed painting and drawing whenever he could.

In 2007 he married Kiyoka Tamesue. They lived happily in Denver with their dogs Petri Dish and Charlotte.

He loved all animals and found great happiness working with them.

He found a second family in his close circle of friends, who will miss his quick wit and tender ways.

Aaron was loved by his family and was adored by his nieces and nephews. Lovingly referred to as “Uncle Geek”, he spent hours coloring with crayons, building sand castles, chasing balls, stacking blocks and toting small children around on his shoulders.

Aaron will be deeply missed by his parents of Longmont, his wife of Lafayette and his five brothers and sisters: Andrea Dawson (Ben), San Clemente, CA, Mathew Stones (Andrea), Aurora, Erica Lundgreen (Richard), Aurora, Breanne Newson (Ben), Lafayette, Michael Stones (Taylor), Longmont as well as his 9 nieces and nephews.

Memorial contributions may be made in Aaron’s memory to the Longmont Humane Society, 9595 Nelson Road, Longmont, CO. 80501
