Honestly, the support for this has been amazing and I think it is a testament to the impact Aaron had on those who cherished and knew him. We have gone over the donation goal and anything over the cost for the art will be donated to charity.

Completed Art: https://ibb.co/5xpr7Dr   For the Art concept, it will be Aaron's lizard gang campaign characters. Dara, Nolen, Dunkel, and Aro will be side by side looking into the sky in the background where Aaron's characters Sauriv and Lyre will be translucent and fading into the cloud/sky with stars in the background fitting of Aaron's star druid. Aaron Reis Benjamin, age 33, passed away on August 1st, 2021.

Born to parents Cindy and David Benjamin, Aaron will be remembered for his tireless devotion to family, principled ethics, quick wit, and playful irreverence. Highly analytical and honest to a fault, Aaron rarely shied from speaking his mind -- especially with those whom he loved and felt needed to hear it most.

Though an accomplished senior software engineer, he lived a life of humility and practicality. He was a committed humanist with a great love for knowledge, the advancement of the sciences, and respect for life.

He is survived by his parents, Cindy Benjamin and David Benjamin, brother Ian Benjamin, sister-in-law Desiree Hernandez and committed girlfriend Kim. We will miss him more dearly than he could ever know and we carry our fondest memories of him deep in our hearts.

A family service will be held privately. To those wishing to honor Aaron's life, our family asks that you donate to a charity of your choosing. In his passing, Aaron had chosen to make life-saving tissue donations. He would want you to live your life in a manner of your choosing, but if you can muster it today, do it with a wry smile for Aaron.
