Aidan James Ansley

December 29, 2011 ~ March 19, 2020 (age 8)


A Time To Be Born

Aidan James Ansley was born a miracle baby on December 29, 2011, in Little Rock, Arkansas.  Affectionately know as “Baby Aidan” to his family he was their pride and joy.

He was born with many complications, but Aidan was able to overcome many obstacles that science stated that he would never be able to do.

A Time To Die

Aidan entered into his life everlasting on Thursday, March 19, 2020, at his home in Bentonville, AR.  His last days were spent making his family laugh and spending time with his family and friends.

A Time To Plant

Aidan attended 2nd grade as a student at Mary May Jones Elementary.  He was well known by the students and staff for his beautiful and contagious smile and great big hugs.  He was known as the kid who could instantly brighten your day.  He will be greatly missed by his Jones Elementary Family.   

He received therapy services from Physicians Therapy Group.  As a part of the PTG family for 8 years, he was known for his smile, laughter and hugs.

No one was a stranger to Aidan.  He was always seen walking up to people and giving them hugs and holding conversations.  It is truly believed that he was sent to demonstrate how to show love and compassion to everyone.

AJ taught his family to laugh often and to show love with a hug and a smile.  He was the family comedian always showing off his dance moves and telling jokes and laughing before he finished the punchline.  You could never enter a room without giving him a hug and he would never allow you to leave without giving him a hug and saying, “I love you”.   Aidan was sent to demonstrate love and kindness and he did just that daily.
