Aaron Lindsey Huggins, 31, a loving father, husband, son, brother, uncle, nephew and friend, died peacefully on September 24 at Saratoga Hospital surrounded by family and friends.
Born in Albany and raised in Saratoga, Aaron grew up enjoying camping with his family and had a passion for baseball, especially his beloved Boston Red Sox. His spark for adventure led to winter weekends spent in the mountains on his snowboard and even a sky dive out of a plane. On November 17, 2012, he married Alisa Goodman of Fort Ann and they welcomed their beautiful boy Aidan Lee in April 2013. Aaron enjoyed spending time together with his young family. In the spring of 2014, Aaron completed an apprenticeship program to become a journeyman, often working in areas of disaster relief.
In addition to his wife and son, Aaron is survived by his parents Reggie and Andrea Huggins of Saratoga Springs; his brother and sister-in-law Shane and Jessica Huggins of Rotterdam; his maternal grandmother Betty Dean of Ballston Spa; his paternal grandparents Gerald and Sharon Huggins of Howe Caverns; his parents in-law, Les and Colleen Goodman, two sister in-laws and niece; his extended family of aunts, uncles, cousins; and many friends.
The family is welcoming everyone who would like to pay tribute to Aaron to a memorial service and celebration of life on Sunday, October 5 from 1 to 4 pm at the Ballston Spa Country Club. Time will be set aside at 2:30 pm for family and friends to share a few words in remembrance of Aaron.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be contributed to a trust started on behalf of Aaron for his son, Aidan at www.gofundme.com/f2wpn4 or by calling State Farm Agent Nicole Della Porta at (518)587-0136. The family wishes to thank the Saratoga Hospital staff for their exceptional care, as well as the friends and colleagues who have shown their support.
