Aidan B. Krachun


With his recent passing, December 30, 2018, Aidan moved from this mortal experience to a better and brighter place. His life will forever be a reminder that he is and will always be our sweet and perfect boy.

Aidan lived exuding passion and love for everything he did and everyone he encountered. His love and passion for life and the people in it were as conspicuous as his big piercing blue eyes, and his contagious electric smile. Aidan’s big heart was honest and unselfish. It made him a source of laughter, peace, hope, and happiness. His natural gift to care for others and place their needs above his own evolved him and his heart into being the center of his family. Aidan was insistent to make sure everyone around him was okay, even if he wasn’t.

While Aidan intently looked after his loved ones and faced opposition of his own, he found refuge in music. He was able to transform music into his armor. By doing so, Aidan was able to cope with so much of what he faced and his music often served as a way to share his feelings and communicate. Music became such an important part of Aidan that it was rare to see him without his headphones. Even in school he kept an ear-bud tucked away in his hoodie so he could retreat to his music. When the world wasn’t there for him and nobody understood, he turned to music to get him through.

Although Aidan is not with us in body, he will always be with us in spirit. He will continue to fiercely protect his beloved little sister, London, who is his very best friend. The way he idolized his big brother, Chandler and his adoration for his little niece, Meadow Jean will always live on in our hearts. The strong bond rooted in love that fused Aidan and his mother together will never diminish; rather, it will be everlasting based on memories of Aidan she can reflect on; from the way he showed his love for her as a protector and her rock, to the countless hours of football, in any form, they enjoyed together as mother and son. Aidan loved his grandparents and all they did for him. He loved his numerous aunts, uncles & cousins and enjoyed the meaningful relationships that were formed.

Aidan’s friends meant the world to him; he loved them and was appreciative of all their support. He was especially grateful to have the love of his life, Kayli Hansen, who stood by his side supporting him through everything to the very end. Friends of Aidan can take comfort knowing that he will always be looking after them, just like he always did.

He is survived by his Mother (Melanie Jeppesen Krachun), his Brother (Chandler, wife Alexis & niece Meadow), his Sister (London Jean), his Grandparents (Tad & Carolyn Jeppesen), (Wayne & Sandy Krachun), and his father (Brian Krachun)
