Aaron was such a kind person, gave me a chance when I was a college kid looking for a job, and was always willing to chat. I am happy I caught up with him one of the last times I was in Rochester, 9 years ago. He was an inspiration to me in starting my own business, and I know he will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Much love to his family, especially Jen and his sons. I hope they can feel his light shine down on them. <3
Sending love to all of you. Aaron will be remembered and carried through the hearts of so many. Nothing left to do but smile, smile, smile!
Susan Jeremy and the rest of the family we are so sorry for your loss. Aaron will be greatly missed. Hang in there. He is in a better place.
May you find solace in knowing how much Aaron's love and presence has affected - and will effect - every individual in this community. My deepest condolences. With all my love.
Aaron is and was a great man. He always gave great advice and he gave the hugs, where as though he embraced me with all he had with comfort and love. Although he has passed, I feel as though he will still be around! Hugs to all Aaron's family and friends. May he live on forever!
I remember Aaron when he started with his cart in front of Blessed Sacrament. He then opened the store which I went to all the time. He was always happy with a smile on his face. I will miss you dearly, and keep you in my prayers. Your up there with Jerry now, say hi to him for me..
To the Plunkett Family: My sincere condolences on the loss of your beloved Aaron. May you find peace in the days to come.
I spent an hour trying to find words of comfort for your Family,Friends, and all the people whose lives you touched when I thought of a verse from a song. "Come on people smile on your brother, let's just love one another right now." I am so sorry for your loss.
I will miss my friend deeply and was proud that he wore my Tattoo work. I was in the middle of drawing his next one. Gonna be a tough one to finish ,but I will. I used to watch Jet and Jim Tattoo in the back of Aaron's store back when I was first getting started and wound up neighbors on the Ave working for Angelina's. He has been an Inspiration to me as well as a great friend, one of the most Kind and Gentle Souls I ever met.
Visiting your shop was always like visiting with family. I'm going to miss our long random conversations, as the cast of characters wandered in and out of the store, all with more stories of their own. Always a favorite place to shop for those you love. See you out there Aaron.
Although we haven't stayed in touch over the years we still considered Aaron& Jen friends words can not express our sorrow and we pray that the LORD will provide comfort to your family during this time of mourning. May GOD Bless and be with you. In Christ , Anne & Steve
Remembered cleaning your room as a teenager. Great memories at Jazzberrys on Monroe. Taught me so much on catering jobs. Aaron so humbled. Aunt Susie so sorry. Sincere thoughts to the entire family. Kitchen memories forever in my heart always.
Fly free my friend~peace and love
Aaron...keep the same smile and open heart as you set off on your next great adventure. My condolences to the Plunkett Family and all of Aaron's friends and fans.You are sorely missed.
Aaron, I'm so sorry I won't be in town to see you - but I love you. You will be forever missed.
Susan, My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

You will always be remembered kindly brothaman.
Monroe Avenue won't be the same without seeing Aaron's smile at the store. See you on the other side!
Dear Susan, Jenn, Jeremy, Noah & Adam, There are no words to express how sorry we are for your loss. But know we are thinking of you in friendship and sympathy.
Aaron is and was a wonderful guy he was very nice and funny I was just getting to know him and I am taking his passing very hard may he rest in peace and my preys go out to his fam :'( gone but never forgotten <3
Aaron was two weeks younger than my son Jason. When they met as hell-raisers at Asbury Day Care Center, there was that Click and they were buds for life. The gift that Aaron gave to all was to be there for you, to make you feel as if at that you were the most important person in his world. He always had the time to listen. My heart is full of so many warm memories and LMAO moments. He was & is a unique part of the history of his hometown Rochester. Sending my love & prayers to Susan, Jen, Noah, Adam, Jeremy and Steve and all his family. It was a joy knowing him.
My thoughts are with you all. Aaron was so kind and generous, he touched everyone he met in profound ways. I will miss him so very much. It was an honor just to have known him.
Jenn and family, we will get through this together. I promise, but this is going to hurt like hell. Just hold on!
I don't know where to start...Aaron has been a great friend since the day we met 20 years ago, I would come in once a week to bring in blanks and pick up phish and dead shows on tape, or just to talk to Aaron. He was one of my most favorite people in the world, always had a smile, a kind word and a hug. Even after I moved away I made sure that every trip home included an hour or so to stop in and see my brother Aaron. You will be missed but never forgotten my kind friend. Peace and Love to all that he touched in his short yet full life. Let his smile and warm heart help us carry on without him. "A box of rain will ease the pain, and love will see you through."
My heart goes out to all of Aaron's family. I really didn't know Aaron that well, but I always got a warm friendly feeling from him. His smiling face and vibe will be missed.
Thank you so much for sharing your time to this gal when she moved to 'the big city' about 13 years ago. Aaron's Alley was one of the first places I visited and Aaron welcomed me to the area and made me feel at home. Much love and peace to Aaron and his family.
I had the pleasure of meeting Aaron on the 4th of July at the Dawes concert while playing between acts. I was impressed with his friendliness and warmth. We got into a very thought provoking and Deep conversation of which we both realized.
Aaron I had not seen you in awhile but me and my girlfriend were big fans of your store. I remember how you struggled to get started and eventually became and institution on Monroe Ave. I still remember growing up with you on Westminster St back in the 1970's. You will forever be missed.
I will miss you forever, deepest sympathies to your family...You live on through our memories of you, your love for your family and friends, and through your boys, Noah and Adam...I will always treasure that last "love you" at the glad I had so many years to know and love such a wonderful friend...peace...always in our hearts.
Aaron- you will remain forever in our hearts. Thank you for being the kind soul that you were. I will always remember your warm smile and friendly personality. Much love.
I am so sorry to hear of Aaron's passing and everyone's loss. He was a delightful child and while I barely knew him as an adult the testimonials speak louder than words. I'm sorry for his early passing and my condolences to his family and to Susan.
It is not with sorrow that I remember my big hippy brother Aaron, but with Love. There is the Light that he gave to each and everyone of us, living in our hearts. Fly high and free Aaron. You earned your wings long time ago. Much love, Mike
Susan, Jeremy & family - so sorry for your loss. I always stopped in to see Aaron whenever I was in Rochester - no matter what restaurant the family met at - there was always a trip to "Aarons Alley" to say hello! He was always happy to see us - that great smile!!! He will be missed. The Dornford family
Thoughts and prayers go to the friends and family of my friend Aaron Plunkett who is now at rest and peace in in the heavens my brother!
Such a loss for all who knew and loved him - may he rest in peace knowing the amazing impact he had on so many lives.
Aaron good times in high school your laughter, smile , love for life and kindness of heart will be missed . Hope your spirit soars and wherever it may land I know is where it belongs.
RIP Brother Aaron! You were loved by many and will be greatly missed by all those those knew you. Make sure you ask for your tie dye t-shirt up there! I hear Gerry has it...:-)
I wanna thank Aaron for bringing so many people together over the years. Always with a open heart and open mind he was the hub of Monroe ave. You will be deeply missed, and all of us will carry on ur wise words, inspirational smile and uplifting spirit. Say hi to Jerry fo us brother. Peace
Susie, I can't believe that we will share this too. Our childhood was so much fun and now that we are older, we experience such sadness. I cry with you with as much fervor as we used to giggle when we were children. He was so proud to have you as his mother. He told me this when he served me years ago at the Highland Diner.
Peace love and light my friend see you on the other side! Love you always! The Schojan clan <3
Saw your posts on Facebook - our thoughts and prayers are with you and yours - so much grief yet so much positive inspiration in regards to this difficult journey. Take care and know we are sending positive energy and love.
My heartfelt sympathy and thoughts are with you and your family. xxoo
you will be missed. Monroe ave. will not be the same :(
Jeremy, Susan, Jenn, I'm so sorry for your loss! We don't meet many people in our lives that are just GREAT HUMAN BEINGS & Aaron was a great human being. He was 1 of those "shirt off his back" kind of people and a lot of people are feeling his loss. I'm glad I met him when we were kids. We grow older and lose touch with old friends, Aaron always made you feel like you didn't miss a beat. Many blessings to all of his friends & family, his spirit will always be with you!

I am honored and blessed to have had you in my life. ~Fare you well, Fare you well, I love you more than words can tell, listen to the river sing sweet songs, to rock my soul.
