Aiden Christopher James Knox 17, passed away suddenly at his home in Crestview, Florida on Tuesday, May 24, 2022. Aiden was born in Bluffton, Indiana on July 7, 2004, to Ryan and Sarah Knox. He was currently a junior at Crestview High School enrolled in the welding program. Aiden’s greatest aspiration was to become a welder and was very excited about his future. He was employed by Emerald Isle Seafood and a member of Zub Church in Zanesville, Indiana.
Aiden loved so many and was loved by so many more. He had an energy that with even just one encounter with him, you would remember him for life. Aiden had left his mark.
He cherished every one of his friends and was always there for them whether they needed a hand or a shoulder to cry on. He always seemed to look out after others and would put others before himself.
Aiden enjoyed doing what most 17-year-old boys do playing video games, listening to music, hanging out with friends, working and most importantly being with his family. He also loved sporting his Van’s apparel.
Aiden brought so much love and joy to our lives and to those who were around him. He will be remembered for his big, bright blue eyes his half-crooked smile and his contagious laugh.
Aiden is preceded in death by his grandfather, Christopher Wood.
Aiden is survived by his mother, Sarah Lyn Knox (Wood), his father, Ryan Knox, younger brother, Jonah Knox, grandmothers, Rebecca M. Werling of Fort Wayne, Indiana, Barbara McCarthy of Huntington, Indiana and Carlene Knox of Fort Wayne Indiana, his grandfather, Kevin Knox of Fort Wayne, Indiana, his uncles, Adam Wood of New Haven, Indiana, Michael Wood of Fort Wayne, Indiana, Matthew Knox of Virginia Beach, Virginia (US NAVY), his aunt, Elizabeth Werling of New Haven, Indiana.
Funeral service will be held on Tuesday, June 7, 2022, beginning at 3:00 p.m., at First Presbyterian Church of Crestview, with Pastor Mark Broadhead officiating. The family will receive friends Tuesday, June 7th from 2 – 3 pm at the church.

I met Aiden our freshmen year of highschool in 7th period biology. I had gone to a different middle school then him so I had no idea who he was. He sat directly behind me and some how throughout the whole year my friends and I had our seats turned behind to his desk. Within those first days of school he had made pretty decent friends with me. I looked forward to that class as he was hilarious to talk to. After that year I stayed in touch with him. He became friends with my friend Hannah and we hung out in July 2020. I always wanted to do more but never got the chance. When I thought we had fell off being friends I’d see him in the halls sophomore year and he’d always say hi to me. He was just amazing in that way to me, that we didn’t even have to talk and he’d never forget we were friends. I wish we could’ve gotten close again, but I’m happy I always had him on social media. I will miss him a lot. He was truly an amazing friend.
I apologize for any grammar issues just wanted to express my time with Aiden and how he made a difference with me.

When I walk I will remember you. When I run I will remember you. When we gather I will remember you. When we celebrate I will remember you. As we continue, we will now live for you! Nephew, you blessed us with your life for nearly 18 years and we will forever treasure each moment shared. My heart breaks thinking about how your beautiful life was cut short so suddenly, but I know someday I will see you again. Until, then…I love you.

Gone from our sight, but never from our hearts. As I sit here on the ride up to Florida for your celebration of life, i’ve started thinking. I’ve come to the realization that you’re actually gone. That is something nobody can change, but what we can change is the way we love, value family, and life our lives. Life is too short. Say I love you more. Take more pictures. Have fun. It’s time for us to live for you Aiden. I promise to do it for you Aiden! I love you my sweet cousin and will miss that contagious smile and loving heart you had. Grateful for all of the memories we made together growing up. Rest in paradise.
