It comes with great sadness to announce that on Monday, March 22, 2021, Aaron Virgil Asevedo, a loving husband and father of nine, passed away at the age of 66 after a long-term battle with cancer. Due to Covid-19, We will be honoring his memory with a small family gathering to be held on Saturday, April 10, 2021, at 12:00 p.m. at the residence of nephew, Philip Hebert.
Aaron was preceded in death by his father, Robert, his mother, Adele, his brother, Bobby, and his sister, Diane. He is survived by his wife Maria, his nine children, Sean (April), Shannon, Leah, Henry, Virgil, Elinor, Erin, Bridget (Jacob), and Jude. As well as his brothers, Jerod, Rodney, and Leland and sisters Donne, Leann (Joe), his in-laws Patricia, Robert, John (Kathy), and his extended family including many nephews, nieces, and grandchildren. Born in New Orleans, Louisiana, Aaron was a man of many passions. He grew up in Saint Bernard parish with his seven eccentric siblings. Here he learned to ride and care for horses at a young age. His passions expanded into the arts when he learned to play the clarinet and grew later in life while learning the guitar. Aaron experienced life through music as an accomplished singer and performer. His passions branched off into painting, autobody work, carpentry, and motorcycles. He had three wonderful children from his first marriage who currently reside in St. Bernard, Louisiana. One fateful day a young woman by the name of Maria met a handsome horse trainer on a spring adventure. They fell in love and the next day he purchased a wall phone in anticipation of her call. Something about a fish tank and his ‘I don’t give a shit attitude’ told her it was forever. He was not quick to give up the cowboy lifestyle as he had 6 beautiful children on their property in Folsom aside horses and other livestock. After dipping their toes in the four corners of America they finally settled in sunny Florida where he lived the rest of his days on a balcony overlooking the beach. He was many things; an equestrian, painter, trucker, but mostly a loving father, brother, neighbor, friend, and husband who will be remembered fondly by all.
We ask that If you would like to honor his memory, please send flowers in lieu of your physical presence for Aaron Asevedo to 1805 Heights Drive, Saint Bernard, LA 70085. Please send deliveries by 10:00 AM on Saturday, April 10, 2021
