I am sad to report the passing of Aaron Buffington, who used to post on here often as So Haaad. He was a nice young man and loved the outdoors.

BUFFINGTON, AARON J.

Aaron James Buffington, son of Richard and Cheryl Buffington of Alexandria, MN, died peacefully at his home in Blaine, MN after a courageous battle with kidney cancer. Born on August 12, 1973 in Alexandria, MN, and growing up on Lake Darling, Aaron enjoyed fishing, swimming, and hanging out with his Tabberts gang of friends. After high school graduation, Aaron attended the University of Minnesota-Duluth and later received a Master’s Degree from St. Mary’s University of Minnesota. Aaron was employed as a City Planner for the City of Forest Lake. On April 3, 2008, Aaron married Stephanie Persons in a beach ceremony in Naples, Florida. Aaron and Stephanie made their home in Blaine, MN where they raised their 2-year-old son, Lucas. Aaron viewed his son as the “light of his life.” Family and friends were important to Aaron. Conversations and just relaxing at the lake with his mom were some of his favorite times. He enjoyed hunting and fly fishing with his dad and brother Jason. He shared the love of the outdoors and the mountains with his sister Michelle. His nieces and nephews held a special place in his heart. Aaron was involved in long distance running and was considered an inspiration to fellow runners. Aaron is survived by loving wife, Stephanie (Persons); son, Lucas; parents: Rich & Cheryl Buffington of Alexandria; brother, Jason (Liz) Buffington; sister, Michelle Wuollet (Tony); nephews: Patrick, Gordon, Garrett & Cooper; nieces: Kjirsten & Catherine, and many other relatives & friends. Our hearts are saddened with the passing of our dear Aaron. We will honor his life by continuing to live, laugh, and love as Aaron taught us to do so well. Visitation at KOZLAK-RADULOVICH BLAINE CHAPEL (107th Ave. NE & Hwy. 65) Sunday (TODAY) from 4-7 PM. Memorial service at OUR SAVIOR’S LUTHERAN CHURCH (9185 Lexington Ave. N., Circle Pines) Monday at 11 AM with visitation one hour prior. Memorials preferred.

Brought my little one cat fishing today in his honor.....thought that was better than running fifty miles wink Makes me sick to my stomach that they never had that opportunity. He truly was one of those guys that was simply a good guy. He will be missed my many. Cancer sucks!

      Thanks to Wanderer (Tracy) for extracting me from a sticky situation 🤦‍♂️. It was also nice to finally meet you in person!! I think you need to start a weekend towing business lol. I had a buddy of mine and his dad come out and check and make sure I was okay after you left. Fishing was pretty good I got 8 gills all around 8” and 1 crappie 9”. Dad came out and got 5 gills. We stayed till 6:15pm and I was able to make it off the lake no problem.

      Cliff and Byron are planning a Kids ice fishing day February 12. The event is out of Fortune bay Marina  9-1. The event is for Tower and Nett lake kids. I know Cliff is looking for a few helpers.

      Cuz that’s just me.  🙂  I just like tinkering and seeing what I can get away with - and learn about things.   Just got done with a fine hone stone and got out some small nicks I’m pretty sure I got from cutting dirty ice in ND.  I’ll find out tomorrow how I did.

      Like @eyeguy 54 says, Frank has been the go-to guy for members of this site for years.  He does it by mail and is in Saginaw, MN.   It’s interesting that you ask about re-shaping also.  I know Frank has the Nils jig and the drill blades are curved.  I was considering tuning up my own today before they get too dull but am concerned about maintaining the shape of the curve. Since I was a machinist in a former life, I’m still gonna try it.  Then maybe send to Frank. 😀
