Aron J. Engberg
June 3, 1980 - February 27, 2017



Tribute to Aron Engberg, A Celebration Of Life.
On June 3, 1980 Earlene Engberg-Crowell and Michael Engberg brought a legend into the world.  Aron Jay Engberg had a less than average lifespan, but his life, influence and legacy are nothing short of exemplary and extraordinary. Aron spent the majority of his childhood in Orem, Utah.  It’s safe to say that Aron was a black sheep living life the way he thought it should be lived.  While most kids chose to conform, Aron knew he’d never stand out and make a difference if he spent his life trying to fit in. One of the many reasons we love Aron is because he taught us that no matter how different we are, we have so much to learn from one another.  Aron attended Mountain View High School and graduated in 1998. Anyone who knows Aron would agree that he did not fit a single stereotype. He could out-muscle the jocks, out-smart the scholars, and more importantly, he was a champion. His work ethic in the wrestling room was replicated in his personal and professional life and ultimately shaped him into the man he had become. Benefitting hundreds, Aron paid it forward and took the values and lessons he learned on the mat and became an even better coach. Aron is often described as a “purebred beast” and someone who has a unique ability to bring out the very best in every athlete. He helped others believe that they didn’t have to suck at life. In the summer of 2000, Aron made the best decision of his life, and married Marja Reid Engberg. Together, Aron and Marja raised three of the most ridiculously talented, intelligent, and kind human beings: Jordan, Jace and Simjay. While it’s incredibly difficult to say goodbye to Aron, we find comfort knowing these three young men are going to change the world, just like their dad.
Aron humbly held a number of titles during his life: son, brother, athlete, state champion, teammate, entrepreneur, coach, soldier, friend, and husband. Although, no title meant more to him than that of “Pop." Aron lived and breathed for his boys and their love for him was just as apparent. He was an amazing father and supported them in every aspect of their lives and we believe he will continue to do so for the rest of their lives.
In 2011, Aron joined the Army and his family started their new adventures in New Smyrna Beach, Florida. They were instantly embraced by the community, and their friends quickly became their second family. Florida living helped Aron harness his creativity and re-ignited his entrepreneurial spirit which led him and Marja to launch their business.  Aron spent the last year serving our country in Kuwait with the United States Army, and we were thrilled to celebrate his safe return in January. Aron was an avid wrestler, and he shared his passion with his entire family.  This passion has taught the Engbergs so much throughout their lives with the most important being to always fight no matter how rough things get.  We invite family and friends to celebrate the life of Aron Engberg on Saturday March 4, 2017 at 5:30 pm at Hiles Beach, New Smyrna Beach Florida. Any and all are welcome to this celebration of life. The Engberg family would also like to express their gratitude to those who assisted in the rescue efforts.
