Brian Christopher Ashley
Age: 46 • Oneonta, NY
Brian Christopher Ashley, age 46, passed away unexpectedly but peacefully on Tuesday, October 10, 2017, at his home in Oneonta, NY. He was born in Burlington, VT on November 7, 1970 to Robert and Judy Ashley and lived most of his early life in the Richmond and Williston area until wanderlust struck.
As an adult he lived in various states including Florida, Colorado, Michigan, Minnesota, Tennessee and Arizona. While he lived his last few years back in the Northeast, he despised cold weather and longed for the sun and warmth of his former residence in Tucson. Brian attended Champlain Valley Union High School and was currently in the process of obtaining his Accounting Degree at Southern New Hampshire University. While he was proud of his academic pursuits, his greatest source of pride was his daughter, Rachel, born July 12, 2000. Even in death, she owns his heart. Brian was a charismatic, intelligent, sensitive person with a variety of interests and a thirst for knowledge. He was an avid football fan, loved trivial knowledge and he was as equally talented at swinging a hammer as he was at banging away on his drum set.
He is predeceased by his father, Robert Ashley, and survived by his mother and stepfather, Judy Ashley and Dale Woods, of Bristol, VT; his brother and sister-in-law, Robert and Tara Ashley, of Pocatello, ID; his sister and brother-in-law, Kimberley & Shawn McGrath, of Otego, NY; his niece and nephew, Maggie and Sam Ashley, also of Pocatello, ID; and of course his daughter, Rachel Ashley, and her mom, Deanne Ashley, of Ludington, MI. In addition, he will be deeply missed by his many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
Family, friends, and others whose lives Brian touched are invited to join us for visiting hours on Saturday, October 14, 2017, from 2:00-4:00PM with a service to follow at 4:00PM at Corbin and Palmer, 9 Pleasant Street, Essex Junction, VT to reminisce, grieve, and support each other.
