He married Karen Dawson Ashley and they had two children, Carrie and Jason Ashley who grew up in Clear Lake. He had two grandchildren, Mercadi Mejia and Marshall Auckland and one great- grandson, Christian Mejia. He loved his grand babies very much.
He went to school in Lyman and Sedro-Woolley. He was drafted into the U.S. Army where he served our country, got to travel to Europe, and made many friends.
He loved to fish (oh how we’ll miss his amazing smoked fish!) He liked to hunt for deer and mushrooms. He was creative, funny, and loving. He was always there for his family and we will miss him terribly.
He is survived by his children, Carrie Ashley Auckland and Jason Ashley; siblings, Chuck Ashley, Bill Ashley, Rene Ashley Allen, Ron Bryson and Bonnie Bryson Shriner.
