Ashton loved life and never let anything stop him from living it to the fullest. His passing was such a surprise! And naturally we are all sad but rather than focusing on that, we ask you to join us in celebrating the life he lived. Please come share stories of how he impacted your lives and put smiles on your faces. If you have something purple, please wear it! Purple was and I dare say, still is his favorite color. It would make him happy to see people wearing purple to say goodbye or until we meet again and honor the truly unique individual that was and always will be Ashton.
Great Grandson, Grandson, Son, Nephew, Uncle, Cousin, Father and Friend. He will be greatly missed by many!
