Aaron J. Meloy
Aaron Jeffrey Meloy was born September 26, 1986 in Macon Georgia to Bob and Missy and sister Christine. He spent the first 3 years of his life in Macon, Watertown, New York and Richmond Virginia.
In 1990 the family moved to the TriCities where his grandparents, uncles, aunts, and cousins lived.
He started playing soccer when he was 6 until 12 years of age. He loved the game and continued playing recreational soccer into adulthood. In middle school he played basketball and baseball for Liberty Christian School, and he continued playing baseball through high school.
He was very active in the Richland Baptist Church youth group, sharing his faith by acting in the Judgement House productions. He also enjoyed going to youth camp every year at Camp Touchet. At this time, he met the love of his life Danielle Dean.
Aaron graduated from LCS in 2005 and went on to CBC where he received his AA then continued with Fire Science. He started his career by volunteering at Benton County Fire District #4 in 2008. In June of 2016 Aaron accepted a career position with the district where he advanced to the rank of Lieutenant.
After graduating from CBC Aaron and Danielle married on August 23, 2014. God blessed them with a son, Asher, on August 26th of 2018. Aaron was the proudest daddy and loved Asher intensely.
He continued playing soccer and enjoyed going to Sounders matches with family and friends. He took up pickleball in 2023.
Aaron was one of the kindest men you would ever meet and made friends with everyone. He cared deeply for all of his friends and family and those he was called to serve. That is what made him such a good 1st responder. But his heart was too big and he couldn’t bear the trauma that took him from this life much too soon.
He passed from this life to Glory on January 26, 2024. He leaves behind wife Danielle, and son Asher, his parents Bob and Missy, sister Christine and brother-in-law Charlie Hatfield, nieces Gracie and Sawyer; uncles and aunts Jeff and Kathleen Luke, Scott and Lucy Luke, Bill and Gloria Meloy and Mara (Mary) Meloy; and cousins Cassandra, Christopher, Griffith, Rosslyn, Peter, John, Daniel and Eric. He also leaves behind mother-in-law Norma Dean, brother-in-law Christian, niece Kaylee and husband Diego and nephew Elijah.
To the family of Aaron, My heart goes out to you in the loss of Aaron. He was a remarkable person and will be missed by many. He was always a fun person to be around at LCS and as a teacher I enjoyed his presence. I hope that your happy memories will help you get through the difficult times ahead. Love and may God bless you during this sad time.
Aaron if I had the chance I would want to grow up and be like you, a man who cares for all. Aaron you arrived at the Center of excellence before I did, I saw your change and knew then with help I could do it to.
I would like to offer my sincere condolences to your family. Aaron my brother, life is short, I like all our brothers will be sitting around the IAFF table again. I Love You Brother
Missy, my heart breaks for you. Aaron was such an integral part of Liberty Christian School. He was a gentle soul. I’m praying for your family but fear you are searching for a reason and hope you’ll find solace with your faith.
My deepest condolences to family and friends of Aaron. Especially his Wife Danielle, son, and mother and father. Aaron was a great guy. Aaron played pick-up soccer with us, a group of players in Richland every Sunday, including his dad, Bob. I will always remember Aaron as a smiling, happy and wonderful young man. ALL the guys are at a real loss in your passing. Our hearts and thoughts are with you and your family…
