Aaron C. Sabo, age 34, of Perrysburg, Ohio passed away Tuesday, November 13, 2018. He was born November 29, 1983, to Cathy Carr and Steve Szabo.
Aaron enjoyed family, fitness, music and playing the guitar. He was an accomplished high school athlete and was twice a state qualifier in wrestling at Eastwood High School, where he graduated in 2002.
He was attending classes at Owen’s Community College with the goal of becoming a social worker. He was currently working full time at Prime Wood Craft at Best Buy in Findlay, Ohio.
Aaron had an interest in marine biology, was a certified scuba diver, and never missed a “Shark Week.”
Aaron’s unique combination of fierce loyalty and lighthearted humor will be most missed. He was active in opioid recovery efforts and had the willingness to help others overcome addiction. He created a safe and judgment free place for recovering addicts by starting the first Heroin Anonymous meeting in Bowling Green, Ohio.
Left to cherish Aaron’s memory are his children, Rocky and Gabe Sabo; parents, Cathy (Mike) Carr and Steve (Kathleen) Szabo; brothers, Dustin (Natalie) Sabo and Ryan (Allie) Sabo; nieces, Raegan and Sydney Sabo; nephew, Jack Sabo; grandparents, Alliene Sabo and Jean Carr; many cousins, aunts and uncles, and special friend of the family, Joyce Rehm-Stone.
