Aaron D. Cook
Fond du Lac – Aaron David Cook, 33, of Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, gained his wings on Friday, August 28, 2020. His death was a result of a heroin overdose.
Aaron was born May 18, 1987 in Fond du Lac to Roger and Cindy Cook. Aaron attended Fond du Lac High School and was currently employed at A&C Exteriors. Aaron loved to draw and dreamed of becoming a tattoo artist. He shared his love for drawing with his daughter, Kiernan. He was very outgoing and loved spending time with his family and friends and was always there to lend a helping hand. He had a great sense of humor and loved playing jokes on those around him. Aaron loved playing cribbage with his Grandpa Dave and spending time with his Grandpa Jack in his woodshop.
Aaron struggled with his addiction from his late teens until the time of his death. He tried to overcome his addiction and we all thought he was going to be successful this time. The heroin epidemic has touched our lives and has taken our son, father and brother away from us.
Survivors include parents, Roger and Cindy; sister, Ashley (Robert) Steffes; daughter, Kiernan Judson (Kiernan’s mother, Celina Mapes); beloved grandmothers, Audrey Shell and Janet Vermeer; aunts and uncles, Jeff Shell (Linda Beyer), Tim (Lisa) Shell, Jeff Cook, Karen (Gus) Hoffman and cousins, Bobby (Brittany) Cook, Jeremy Krueger, Andrea (Mike) Friis, Jenny (Jon) Egen, David (Toni) Shell, Megan Shell (Andrea), Erica and Billy Cook.
