ASA/AA pilot Capt. Aaron W. Smith, son of DL Capt David W. Smith


In Memory of former ASA and current AA pilot Aaron W. Smith, son of retired DL pilot Captain David W. Smith.  Aaron leaves many dear friends and family who mourn his untimely passing due to cancer.  My sincere apologies to Captain David W. Smith for a less than prompt posting of Aaron's obituary (family matters and a granddaughter's surgery took me out of town for much of this month).   Once again, those wishing to reach the Smith family,  their email address is  dws295@comcast.net , and the mailing address:
7126 Kensington Ct., University Park, FL 34201-2343 ... (941) 360-8202
Dear Captain Smith and family, please accept my sincere sympathy
for the loss of your son Aaron.  I keep you in my thoughts and prayers,
Carol

In Memory of former ASA and current AA pilot Aaron W. Smith, son of retired DL pilot Captain David W. Smith.  Born October 2, 1963 Aaron was 48 years of age at the time of his passing May 16, 2012.
This is a follow up on my son's death notice that was sent to you on Wed 5-16 and not published until late Friday night the day before his services--precluding many from attending. I will send you a picture of my son and hope you included it in the notice. He was an American Pilot and a former ASA Captain. Let me know how to include his picture like the others that were published.

I am so sorry for the loss here of Aaron. I flew with him many times while we were at ASA. What a delightful man he was. We worked hard, laughed often, and enjoyed everything we did. Aaron was a professional when he was supposed to be, loved flying and still had fun always. We used to say we were all members of the "Delta brats" family as my Dad was also a Delta retiree. I never recall for even a second when Aaron wasn't a happy guy. He loved life and will be missed terribly.

  2. I am so sorry to hear of Aaron's passing. He was a very special man and I loved him dearly. He made me laugh and helped me through some hard times. I woke up this A.M. thinking about him and determined that I would find him. Well, I found him and feel so saddened and the world feels less grande because he is not in it. I will pray for your family's healing. Is there a grave site that I might visit? Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers.
    Sincerely,
