Aaron Setters, 36, died at home on Friday, April 12. Born on October 7, 1982, Aaron made Louisville his home throughout his life. He went to Jefferson County Public Schools, graduating from Eastern High School in 2001. He went on to Western Kentucky University before returning to his hometown to be close to family and friends.
Aaron was the second son born to Gordon & Linda (Stoner) Setters. His older brother, Anthony was his best friend and confidant. He dearly loved being a big brother to Adam, his younger brother. The three boys enjoyed a childhood built around family adventures, Little League, and playing music. On April 30, 2017, Aaron was baptized at St. Paul Church, sharing his faith with that community. Aaron dealt with addiction and used these memories of love and connectedness in an attempt to achieve recovery. Long term recovery remained elusive but he continued to make that a goal until his life ended.
Aaron is survived by both parents Gordon Setters and Linda Setters of Louisville, Kentucky, his brothers Anthony and Adam, his sister-in-law, Jennifer and his baby nephew, Keaton, who brought him such joy. Aaron’s smile, inquisitive nature and loyalty will leave a void in the lives of all who knew and loved him.
