Aaron Colletti was killed on the evening of June 11th in a car/bike accident while riding his bicycle with his 17 year old son in Rochester. His 17 year old was also hit by the car but suffered minor injuries. Aaron and his wife both graduated from Akron High School. Aaron was a man of strong faith and spent a great deal of his extra time with his family serving their church and local community in Canandaigua. Additionally, he was a decorated Rochester Police Lieutenant, Eagle Scout Leader, Iron Man athlete, and choose to take the night shift in the police force throughout his career so he could be home and involved with his home schooled children during the daytime. Aaron and his wife lost their first child shortly after birth about 20 years ago before adopting their oldest son, Noble, who graduated high school this year. They then were blessed with 3 of their own children named Jayden, Ella, and Emily ranging between 17 and 14 years old. He was an amazing father, husband, and rock of stability amongst his own siblings. Please consider a shirt purchase to help his family during this time of need.
