Mr. Speaker, like so many in my riding of Kitchener South—Hespeler, I was saddened to hear the news of constituent Aaron Fisher’s sudden and tragic passing while on holiday in the Philippines on Friday, November 18.
Aaron was a professional millwright and was a valued employee at Septodont in Cambridge for many years.
Aaron served as the past president of the Kitchener South—Hespeler Federal Liberal Riding Association. He was also the former executive director of the Hespeler Village BIA. In this role, he was a tremendous advocate for small businesses in Hespeler’s downtown core.
Most of all, Aaron was a dedicated father to his two sons Sammy and Cole, who have lost their father way too soon.
Every member of Parliament in the House knows what it is to have that dedicated and enthusiastic political volunteer. Aaron contributed greatly on both federal and provincial boards and campaigns in various capacities.
I extend my sincerest condolences to Aaron’s family, friends and former co-workers during this difficult time. He will be greatly missed.
