Mr. Aiken was the father of my dear friend Les Aiken. I have known Lanew since 1981 and went to several NASA car races with him and his son in my teenage years. I will never forget his jovial manner and how he referred to Les and me as the two educated dummies! I will miss him dearly and the world will be less colorful without his quick wit and charming personality in it. Mr. Aiken and Charlotte always opened their home to no only myself but all of their children's friends and made us feel as if we were part of the family. He will truly be missed but never forgotten within my fond memories of lost youth.

To Lanew's Family: Les and I were friends in high school, and Kristi and I were best friends in college. I passed by Les's home on Peacock Boulevard many, many times, and Kristi has always spoken of how lucky she was to have such wonderful in-laws. Mr. Aiken was such a kind and funny and welcoming man. Please know that our thoughts are with you during this time, but we know that Lanew will live on through his grandchildren and the rest of his family.
