Aaron Smothers Memorial Fund

The recent passing of Aaron Smothers has left a hole in the hearts of many, though none more so than Lee McGinnis. Lee, and his friend Bruce, stayed by Arron's side the entire time that he was in the ICU at OSU. For weeks, Aaron's health continued to decline, but Lee and Bruce made sure that someone was always there, despite the loss of work. Now that Aaron has passed, Lee has taken it upon himself to bear the expenses of providing Aaron with a decent service and burial, even though the act is putting him deep in debt. So I am hoping that the community can come together and pitch in. In an effort to help Lee with the costs, and to lessen the ramifications of this already horrific tragedy, Travis and I have set up this page. Please take a moment and donate! Everyone deserves a proper send-off.
