Obituary for Aaron Joseph Gotfried

Aaron Joseph Gotfried, age 38, of McHenry, passed away on July 30, 2018 at Centegra Hospital – McHenry. He was born on January 1, 1980 to Michael Scott Godfried and Deborah M. Damiano in Chicago.

For over ten years, Aaron was employed as an Engineer Tech by Coil Craft in Cary, IL. He was known for his deep appreciation of all things science, especially astrophysics, and his wonderful sense of humor. While Aaron found happiness in camping and listening to all genres of music, his greatest source of happiness was his family. He was a loving and dedicated fiancé, father, son, and nephew.

Aaron will be deeply missed by his fiancé, Teryn E. Summers; his daughter, Madison Summers; his parents, Michael (Theresa) Gotfried; his mother, Deborah (Steve) Billirakis; his paternal aunt and uncle, Lawrence Gotfried and Michelle Weitzman; and his maternal aunts and uncle, Thomas (Mariam) Damiano, Libby (Danny) Humphrey, and Gina (Sean Colboth) Damiano.

He was preceded in death by his grandmother, Eva E. Pariso.
