R.I.P. Aron Eisenberg 1969-2019

On Saturday, September 22, Aron Eisenberg died at the age of 50. The cause of death was not reported but he has had two previous kidney transplants. The actor is most known to Star Trek fans for his series long role as Nog on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and probably many met him at the many Star Trek conventions he attended. The actor long stayed involved in Star Trek, including co-hosting "The 8th Rule" with fellow DS9 actor Cirroc Lofton (Jake Sisko). He most recently appeared in the documentary "What We Left Behind Looking Back At Star Trek Deep Space Nine". A GoFundMe page to pay for memorial costs has already blown past its $10,000 goal. Condolences to his family and friends for their lost. His wife wrote on Facebook announcing his passing spoke about Aron Eisenberg best.
It is with extreme regret and sadness to announce that my love and best friend, Aron Eisenberg, passed away earlier today.
He was an intelligent, humble, funny, emphatic soul. He sought to live his life with integrity and truth.
He was so driven to put the best he had into whatever work was put before him.
He lived his life with such vigor and passion.
He was like a breath of fresh air, because I knew I would always hear the truth from him. Even if I didn't want to hear it and even if the truth was inconvenient.
He made me (and still makes me) want to be the best human I can possibly be, because he always strove to be the best human he could be.
His resilience and willingness to learn was and is an inspiration.
We didn't officially announce that we had eloped on December 28th, 2018. We were hoping to have a big shindig in celebration of our nuptials, but had to wait to save up the money.
While, our marriage, on paper, was a short one. Our hearts had been married for far longer.
I will be forever thankful for the time we had to love each other.
Five years felt like a lifetime, in the best possible ways.
There will never be another light like Aron's. The beauty that he was and the legacy he leaves behind is beyond words. I love him dearly and will miss him eternally.
At the moment I'm not sure how to do life without him...
