With profound and heart shattering sadness, the family of Aaron Chaput announce his death at the Sault Area Hospital, peacefully, in his sleep on September 5, 2018. Aaron had battled ulcerative colitis and crohns courageously, without losing his sense of humour, for over half of his 28 short years. Our lives have been changed forever by this huge hole in our hearts. He was deeply loved by all. Son of Cathy and Pete Chaput and brother to Matthew and Chelsea. Nephew to Mary Nebesniuk (late Fred), Alison (Bill) and Mindy Holmes, Pauline Bruzas, John (Angie), Michelle Phillips (Jim), Jim (Brenda), Willow Dion (Dave), Joe (Helen) Cousin of Mike Nebesniuk, Christine McBride (Steve) and their children Colton and Brooke-Lynn, Josh Bruzas (Mel) and their son Connor, Jake and Stefanie Bruzas, Renee, Claire and Daniel, Heather Philips, Mallory and Brittany, Mitchell and Megan Dion; Benn. Predeceased by his grandparents Marg and Wally Holmes, Madeleine and Paul Chaput and uncle Fred Nebesniuk. He will also be missed by great aunts and uncles and extended family and his devoted dog Fang. Aaron you are now free from your pain; so soar with the angels. We will carry your pain now until we meet again.
