Aaron Benson – RIP

Sad time for Paradigm Integration
We are mourning the loss of an integral and important member of our company.  On Saturday (10-27-2018) Aaron (A-ron) Benson, AKA “Batman” succumbed after a ruthless battle with Cancer. As you may know, he survived a failing Liver and a successful transplant, only to find out shortly after returning to work that he had Stage 4 Cancer in his pancreas.  He battled two rounds of Chemotherapy in New Orleans only to find out it was not effective.

Not only was Aaron an incredible Technician and expert in the field of Home Automation systems, he was forever loyal to Paradigm and had a relentless passion for knowledge related to technology.  He had to be the first to have any new gadgets!  But we all know that side of Aaron, as he showed many of our customers his expertise on a daily basis.  And after hours he was DJ and a minster for wedding all over the Bay area.

Shortly after we began our business (then known as Allsafe Alarm), Aaron joined the Company.  He served as the technical guidepost for the journey and migration from an alarm company to what is today one of the Bay Area’s leading Home Automation Integration companies.  Aaron had a knack for “making things work”, of course he was the self proclaimed — “Batman”.  We could always count on Aaron to provide honest and thorough evaluations making many business decisions easy. He was relentless in his quest for knowledge, especially with electronic and control systems.  Paradigm will forever be in his debt for his dedication and loyalty. In all my years in this business, I have never met anyone that “make things work” as reliably as Aaron.  As his Dad told me the other day, “God must have had a really difficult problem, and need Aaron’s help”.

But what you may not know is that he married into a family with three young girls.  He was an incredible “instant” Dad.  From day one, he was so proud to be the father of these 3 young ladies.  He was relentless in dedicating his pastime to them.  Unfortunately he will not be able to see the results of his dedication and love.   They now have to grow up and hold on to the values and teachings he has provided to them as they move their lives forward.

Because the girls were such an important part of Aaron’s life. He was proud of them in so many ways.  He would frequently talk about how smart they were and wanted to make sure they took every opportunity to get an education.   In this light, I promised Aaron that Paradigm would create an Educational Trust for the three girls.  It is currently being set up and more information will be posted or available soon.  Any questions can be directed to Bob Johannsen at bob@paradigm-inc.net

AARON BENSON EDUCATIONAL TRUST
Bob and Pat Johannsen, at the request of Aaron Benson have established an Educational trust for the benefit of the three (3) daughters Aaron has left behind.  This was a very important to Aaron, as he wanted to make sure that the girls would have the opportunity to continue their education if they choose.  This trust is established in his name for that purpose.

Please donate what you can to make Aaron’s wish a possibility.

Donations in the form of a check, money order or cash should be sent to:
