Gene Aron

July 21, 2018

Upon hearing of Gene Aron’s death, many camp friends posted condolences and remembrances on the Kinderland 60s email list.  This came from Judee Rosenbaum:

“I haven’t seen him in many many years, but my memories of him are filled with warmth and light.  He was open-hearted; a kind and good person — a real mensch — and I remember him also as very sweet.  (Adults sometimes grow out of sweetness — the last time I saw him, he had not.)  We’ve lost so many good people in the past few years; it’s hard.
