In life we never know what others are going through, but it is said that we all want to be there for others in their time of need. Aaron served others and was always there for others, so it is heartbreaking that we share that on April 21, 2023, Aaron Oberlander passed away at the young age of 46. Those that knew him are thinking the "If only's" but we now must move forward with courage and strength for his loving wife Kim and his children: Cameron & Lilly.
Aaron's life started on October 21, 1976, in New Haven, Connecticut where he was born the oldest child of David and Heather (Knott) Oberlander. After graduation he decided to enroll at University of Cincinnati and to serve in the United States Army. The University of Cincinnati is where he met his future bride, Kim Bernard. They married on Feb. 23, 2004, and later that year he was called on to deploy for the US Army. After serving our country, he came back to Cincinnati and still had the feeling of serving his community so he joined the Hamilton County Sheriff's Department. He started working at the Hamilton County Jail, where he took on various positions, and worked many details. Over the past few years he was a Sergeant at the Hamilton County Jail. He had a true passion of service to others.
When not working Aaron loved to be outside doing landscaping jobs or visiting his father-in-law. He was also very handy with remodeling projects at his home. He loved seeing the projects come together and ultimately being enjoyed by his family. Whether it was outside or inside projects he was always so proud of his accomplishments when the job was done. Aaron also loved to eat and one of his favorite places was Carlo & Johnny's.
Those left to cherish Aaron's memory are his loving wife: Kim Oberlander; children: Cameron & Lilly Oberlander and Hannah Reynolds; Siblings: Andrea Oberlander & Alan Oberlander, father-in-law: Don (Irene) Bernard; Sister-in-law: Amy (Brian) Borcherding & Lynn (Randy) Supe; nieces & nephew: Claudia & Ross Borcherding, Emma, Ethan & Max Supe.
Gathering of Friends and Family will be held at Eden Chapel United Methodist Church, 150 Dahlia Ave, Sayler Park, OH 45233 on Thursday, April 27, 2023, from 2 pm until the time of the Service at 6 pm. Military Honors will follow at 6:30 pm with the US Army and Honor Guard.
In memory of Aaron, and in lieu of flowers, we ask memorials be made to Cincinnati Dental Society's Oral Health Foundation.
