Obituary of Aaron Christopher Pueschel
Aaron Christopher Pueschel
On January 24, 2023, Aaron unexpectedly passed away, peacefully in his sleep. He was born December 8, 1974 in Des Moines, Iowa where he was raised until the age of eleven when he relocated to Illinois. He graduated from Carl Sandberg High School, and then continued his education at Purdue University, studying organizational leadership and computer technology. He was a member of the Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity.
Aaron is survived by his parents, Diane (Brian) Foster and Dennis (Jody) Pueschel; brother, Shaun Pueschel and sister, Haley Pueschel. Also surviving are his paternal grandmother, Florence Pueschel, niece Rilynn and several aunts, uncles and cousins.
Preceded in death by his grandparents, Albert and Martha Briley, and Milt Pueschel.
Aaron was employed at Samsung/Neovia Logistics in Elwood, IL where he had quickly advanced to management in operations. He loved his career and enjoyed traveling to different Samsung locations across the country. He had a very giving nature and logged in thousands of volunteer hours. Starting in high school and continuing through adulthood, he was active in local politics working with many state senate races. Ronald McDonald House was home to him as well as Habitat for Humanity, Animal Rescue League and Community Youth Concepts. Most recently, he had a heart for seniors and spent hours on life enrichment programs through Triad and could be found many a Sunday afternoon playing Bingo at the local nursing home. Aaron will be remembered fondly as a very social guy who truly appreciated his friends and family. With his quick smile and huge personality, he was a real charmer. He loved all things Purdue, especially football and tailgating. He hosted many outrageous bean bag tournaments. His little brother, Shaun, was a giant in his life and his sister, Haley, was the queen of his heart. Other loves included his kitty (Sir Carter), Siracha sauce, loud thundering house music, cheesecake and Wonder Woman whom he fell in love with as a toddler and never got over. His lucky number was four. He always hoped to have a son named Noah. He was good to his mother – they had a secret code in case anybody ever got kidnapped.
