On Saturday September 22nd, 2018 at 4:53 pm, doctors pronounced Aidan Zachary Armesto dead.
In Aidan’s Father’s words, “Thousands of people from over 30 countries around the world were praying for Aidan to live, but God wanted him more”.
The Armesto family selflessly decided to give the gift of organ donation. Mike Armesto declared “Although my son’s soul is in heaven, his work on Earth is not yet done.”
On Monday, September 24th 2018, surgical teams from across the United States took organ donations from Aidan. A 9 year old boy will be receiving his heart. A 10 year old boy will receive a kidney and his liver. A 59 year old man will receive a kidney and his pancreas. Aidan is a hero to those families, along with everyone who knows and supports the Armesto family.
This amazingly strong and selfless family needs as much support as can be provided. The Cottage Grove Fire Department wants to ease the financial burden that comes with losing not only a family member, but also their only child so suddenly. Please donate to the Armesto family to support them and celebrate the life of a true hero.
If you are local and would like to donate in person, please come to the Cottage Grove Fire Department at 8641 80TH St. S, Cottage Grove, MN 55016 during normal business hours. As a department and a city we are grieving with this tragic loss but we will not be deterred in our duty to support the family and our brother.
