Aaron Gabriel Fallentine passed from this life into the next life October 14th 2020. Aaron leaves behind 5 beautiful children: Kyra, Elijah, Alessa, Evelynn and Kasen. Aaron was 40 years old. Born May 6, 1980, Salt Lake City, Utah to Ralph and Ronalyn Hansen Fallentine.
As a young man, Aaron served in the Bilbao Spain Mission and had many fond memories and experiences there. He still spoke Spanish fluently and enjoyed using his language skills to help other people.
Aaron attended Hunter High school and wrestled all through high school. He loved the sport of wrestling. He was very good at wrestling.
If you knew Aaron and our family, you knew that he came from a long line of practical jokers. They go back to Grandpa Henry Winter, Grandma Joy Stout, His Father Ralph and then himself. I believe Kasen is the next to follow.
Aaron loved the gospel of Jesus Christ. He loved his scriptures. His life had its ups and downs and sometimes the downs were overwhelming. Through all of his experiences, he continued to improve himself. He always took the time to teach his kids to pray and to love their Heavenly Father. His life was his children and he loved them so much.
Aaron suffered with debilitating pain for nearly 8 years. At times it was so difficult that he wanted to die. Many times he stated lovingly, “If it wasn’t for my children, I don’t think I could take this suffering much longer.”
We love and miss Aaron’s humor and wit. He often offered, “complimentary laughs” that drew more laughter than the subject we were supposed to laugh at. He loved to talk politics with his dad and they loved to share gospel topics and talks with each other. Aaron loved his mother so much. She helped him through so many difficult times. She was always there thinking and caring for him, especially when the pain was so excruciating.
Aaron was the oldest of 6 children. He leaves behind his sisters April, Kimberli, Ashley, Kaitlyn and a younger brother, Taylor. He also leaves behind many wonderful aunts and uncles, nieces and nephews and many cousins. We are all heartbroken. The same day Aaron died, his younger sister brought home a newborn baby. We were so excited to see her and then a couple of hours later, we discovered that Aaron had passed on.
Aaron had a dog named Mailee. Mailee is about 12 years old. They were inseparable. He took great pains to care for her because her health was not that good. I’m sure that separation is difficult for him.
Aaron loved his grandparents, and there were quite a few. His is now in their presence, reunited with them. Aaron leaves behind many wonderful friends from earlier on in his life who are so sad by his passing. He loved those old friendships.
