Aaron James Okerstrom
9/22/1988 – 1/1/2015
Aaron passed from this life on 1/1/2015. He is survived by his Mother, Virginia Smith (Ginny), Father, Alden Okerstrom, Princeton, MN., Brother, Timothy Albright (Budha), Stepfather, Bruce Smith, Stepbrother Joshua Smith, and Stepsister, Aurora Smith. Aaron was born in St. Petersburg, Fl. on September 22, 1988. He attended Gulfport Elementary, Tyrone Middle School, Palm Harbor Middle, and Palm Harbor University. Most recently he resided with his Mother and Brother in Palm Harbor, Fl. Fondly referred to as “Dork” or “Dorkie Boy” by his Mother and close friends, or as “THE KID” by his Brother, Aaron was outgoing and had a winning personality. He was a very hard worker and desired to be successful in his life endeavors. BUT! Aaron was not an angel…lol. He had his share of youthful indiscretions. These were not of the sort that would keep him back in life, but rather learning experiences that were molding him into the fine young man that any Mother would be proud of. His stubborn nature and hard headedness often clashed with the forward steps he took. He was making strides toward the maturity that would allow him to overcome these setbacks and eventually accomplish his goals. Tragically the potential he had for great things in life were cut short by a freak accident on New Year’s Day. His life ended too soon. Those that knew him and loved him will miss him dearly. Memorial Services for Aaron will be held Saturday, January 10th, 2015 at New Destiny Worship Center located at 2110 N. Hercules Ave., Clearwater, Fl. 33763 at 5;30 P.M.
