Aaron VanDyke Sr.
February 16, 1958 - November 28, 2021
Middletown, NY

Aaron VanDyke Sr, 63 years old, a lifelong resident of Middletown, NY, passed away peacefully
surrounded by family and friends on November 28, 2021 after a long battle with end stage renal

Aaron was born in Middletown, NY on February 16, 1958 to parents Gerald and Eleanor
VanDyke. After graduating from Middletown High School, he enlisted in the United States Army
where he served our country for a number of years.

Aaron was a devout father, grandfather and friend. “OG” as he was often referred to was the
neighborhood dad and “BBQ King”, and loved cooking for anyone who could eat.
Aaron also had a love for sports that ran deep. Basketball and football being among his
favorites- he was a member of the Middletown Men’s basketball league, and was a die hard NY
Giants fan. Aaron also enjoyed coaching children, and when he wasn’t coaching, he was on the
sideline with a video camera capturing those moments. He was also an avid fisherman, and
instilled that love for fishing not only to his children, but grandchildren as well.

Aaron was a great man, who made a difference in many people’s lives, and will be forever
missed. He leaves behind his children; Ebony, Lauren, Aaron Jr. (Jennifer), Keshan (Safaa),
Justin (Taylor), Jason (Sonja), Daija, and Diamind, siblings; Alan, Barry (Brenda), Denise (Jeff),
Margaret, Phyllis, Rose, Yolanda (Raymond), Gerald, Tom (Michelle), and Wayne,
grandchildren; Amari, Aneesa, Janiyah, Jacob, Julianna, Adryannah, Mariah, Gabriella, Marcus,
Alia, Hamza, Mila, Adrian, Blake, Quinn, Noah, Carter, and Royalty, ex-wife Carol and numerous
nieces, nephews and cousins. He was predeceased in passing by his parents Gerald and
Eleanor, Mother-in-law Naomi, siblings; Geraldine, Eric and Angela, sister-in-law Donna, niece
LaToya and nephew Marcus.
