On Tuesday, May 16th, Aaron Chandler Mansell, age 20, ended his battle with Bi-polar depression. Aaron was a highly sensitive young man with a big, tender heart, who made us laugh by sharing his collection of funny memes and videos. He enjoyed spending time daily with his family, sharing meals and playing card games. Aaron was an avid bowler and frisbee player, and loved riding bikes.

Aaron was a student at Noble Academy for several years, and later, Grimsley High School & Weaver Academy. He had a deep passion for computers and electronics, especially vintage computers from the 1990's, and was a big fan of anything related to cars. He loved tinkering with electronics and volunteered at Goodwill's Computer Junction, where he helped to break down and test donated computers. As a long time member of the online community "BeamNG," Aaron was held in high regard for his talent at modeling and modifying cars through CAD and running crash-test simulations.

Aaron is survived by his parents, Dr. Eric and Mrs. Callista (Kista) Mansell of Greensboro, brother, Chase Mansell, Grandmother, Dot Mathis of Pensacola, Florida and Grandfather, Dr. Richard Mansell of Greensboro. He is preceded in death by his Grandfather, Joe Mathis and Grandmother, Joyce Mansell.

Hanes Lineberry Funeral home, at 515 N Elm Street, will host a gathering for friends and family on Saturday, May 20th, 2017, 3:00-5:00 pm.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the National Alliance on Mental Illness - Guilford (https://namiguilford.org/get-involved/donate_now/) or Sanctuary House Greensboro (Online at http://sanctuaryhousegso.com/donate/).
