Obituary: Chandler, Aaron Patrick

CHANDLER, Aaron Patrick Aaron Patrick Chandler leaped into Jesus’ arms on what would have been his/our parent’s 56th wedding anniversary on May 4, 2013. Aaron graduated from North Central High School in 1977. Go Indians! Aaron worked at many jobs in the Spokane area until he found his favorite working for Rosauers. Aaron was a spiritual and prayerful man as was evident in his generosity and devotion to family and friends. He has a knack of knowing what was needed and to the best of his ability make it happen - a kind word, a phone call, a ride to anywhere, a meal for a sick friend - Aaron was there. Aaron was a true sports fan. He had many favorite teams - Mariners, Cubbies, Greenbay, Cougars, Gonzaga, Indians, and Chiefs to name a few. He loved sports! Aaron enjoyed the many outings that the Sinto Senior Center offered especially the Mariner games and the trips to the different restaurants in and around the Inland Empire. Aaron loved to organize family BBQs and holiday dinners. He always invited everyone as there was always room for one more at the Chandler Table. The only price of admission was the group photo at the end. You couldn’t leave until the pictures were taken! Aaron will be truly missed by his many friends and especially our family. He was our idol. Till we meet again Big Guy! He is survived by brothers Brian Chandler and Tom Chandler both of Spokane, WA; sisters Becky Chandler of Dillingham, AK, and Lynn Feaster of Longview, WA; niece Evelynn (Peter) Marquez; nephew Earl Feaster of Longview, WA; and his aunts, one uncle, and numerous cousins. He was preceded in death by his parents, Thomas and Patricia Chandler and brother-in-law Butch Feaster. A Vigil Service will be held on Friday, May 17 at 7 pm at Hennessey-Smith Funeral Home, 2203 N.
