Merrill

Aiden David Paul Grefe, a sweet and gentle soul known by many names; son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin and friend passed away on April 17, 2023. He was born on February 10, 2006 to Rachel Lynn (Graham) Grefe and Jeffrey Paul Grefe at St. Claire’s Hospital in Weston, Wisconsin. Aiden attended Merrill High School as an 11th grade student.

Aiden would do anything for the ones that he loved. He was extremely compassionate for other people, including his family that he loved with every bit of his heart. He was his little brothers “right hand man” from day one. He was also known for the joy he brought to his younger cousins; “he was never afraid to play like a kid.”

Aiden had a great love for the outdoors, whether it be snowboarding, skateboarding, shooting hoops or hanging out. He also had a great work ethic and worked at McDonalds and more recently at Hardee’s in town.

If Aiden touched your heart, know that you hold a piece of him there forever.
