Aaron was born on June 22, 1990, in St. Paul, Minnesota to Dirk and Jodi Courrier. The family moved to North Mankato, Minnesota when Aaron was 5 years old. Aaron graduated from Mankato West High School in 2008 and attended college at Minnesota State University, Mankato where he graduated with honors with a degree in Psychology in 2012. Aaron later pursued his master’s degree at the University of the Rockies in Colorado Springs.
Growing up, Aaron enjoyed playing hockey, baseball, soccer, lacrosse, snowboarding, and annual trips up north with the extended family. Aaron shared a passion with his sister for reading fiction books, then they would watch the movie together to compare the book to the movie. Later, he developed a love for music and supported local bands. Aaron looked forward to attending outdoor music festivals with his best friend, Garrett. Aaron had a strong love for his family and had a special place in his heart for his grandparents. He would always make time to talk with them on a phone call out of the blue or an engaging conversation swapping stories about the adventures of life during a visit.
During the day, he worked as a lab technician in the Denver area. His real love was being a seasonal whitewater rafting guide where he could take his dog (Arrow) with him to work every day. Aaron often told his parents if he could do it year-round, he would.
Aaron is survived by his mother, Jodi Anderson of Bonita Springs, Florida; father and step-mother, Dirk & Kerri Courrier of North Mankato; sister, Alexandra Courrier and her fiancé, Kyle Giere of White Bear Lake; step-sister, Kate (Jack) Michaletz and their children, Hank and Olive; step-sister, Lauren Gaudreau; step-brother, Tyler Gaudreau of North Mankato; grandparents, Ron and Nancy Anderson of Bonita Springs Florida; aunts and uncles, Cathi (Scott) Courrier-Gieser of Mankato and Janelle (Jeff) Worms of Bonita Springs Florida; cousins, Matt and Andrew Worms and Nick Courrier.
He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Ed and Shirley Courrier.
Aaron was a registered organ donor. The Donor Alliance informed his family that his donation went on to save six lives with active organ donation. Because of his selfless choice to be a donor, his legacy will live on.
A special thanks to the North Suburban Medical Center ICU department and the Donor Alliance for their care of Aaron.
