(1981 - 2012)
Tristan Robert Aronson Plumb 30, of Fairbanks left us unexpectedly on April 19, 2012. He was born in Aberdeen, Washington on September 18, 1981; though he moved to Fairbanks, Alaska, in February 1988 at the age of 6 years. Tristan started making many of his life-long friends when he attended University Park Elementary, moved onto Ryan Middle School and finished his High School Years at West Valley. Currently Tristan was excited about the Process Technology Program at UAF that he was recently admitted into.
Tristan was known for his genuine love of all people and the willingness to help anyone at anytime, his extreme humor, great smile and ready, infectious laugh have been consistently mentioned by all friends and family. Tristan’s first love beyond friends was music, the boy could sing before you could understand a single word he said, it was not uncommon to see him at the Pump House Karaoke on Wednesday nights. Tristan also loved computers, gaming and recently creating humorous art pieces which he delighted in sharing with his community of friends on Facebook.
The sadness at his passing has affected friends and family of all ages and areas of our community. Tristan was preceded in death by his brother, Brandon; great-grandparents, Earl and Lorraine Walls; grandparents, Jimmy and Pearl Plumb; grandfather, Benjamin Aronson; uncles, Jim Robinson and Robert Walls. He is survived by his parents, Jim and Veronica Plumb; sister, Carrie Aronson all of Fairbanks, Alaska; father, Kenneth Aronson of Aberdeen, Wash.; grandparents, Ernie and Cecelia Walls; grandmother, Dorla James, of Aberdeen, Wash.; as well as many other aunts, cousins and most of all, a huge collection of friends he always considered family located in Alaska, Washington and around the world.
A graveside service will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday, May 2, 2012 at the Wynoochee Cemetery, with a celebration of life following at the Aberdeen Elks.
Arrangements are entrusted to Chapel of Chimes Funeral Home, Fairbanks, Alaska.
