It is with great sadness that the family of Ross Ashton announce his passing on February 5, 2020. Ross passed peacefully surrounded by his family at Lakeridge Health Ajax/Pickering Hospital at the age of 94. Beloved husband to Jean Ashton for 69 years. Loving father to Sheryl and Michael Strenge, Glen(deceased) and Helen Ashton, Beth and Frank Nielsen, Barbara and Kyle Graham, Allan and Angela Ashton, and Grant and Susan Ashton. Ross was dearly loved by all of his 9 grandchildren and his 16 (soon to be 17) great-grandchildren. He will be fondly remembered by his sister Marie Sharp and brother Ray Ashton. Ross was predeceased by his brother Ronald Ashton. Ross loved to farm and spent 30+ years employed at GM. Ross never turned down an opportunity to play cards, to go fishing with his sons or to enjoy a slice of pie. The family would like to extend their most sincere gratitude and thanks to Seasons Bowmanville Retirement Living, Lakeridge Health Emergency and ICU staff, as well as, the first responders for their quick, caring support. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Diabetes Association or St. Paul's United Church.

Ross was my second cousin and we grew up in the neighbouring villages of Haydon and Enniskillen. In later years when Ross and Jean moved to Seasons - I often ran into them on their walks around Bowmanville or in McDonald's at lunch. I loved Ross' soft-spoken manner and the twinkle in his eye when he talked about the old days.
I am so sorry that in this day of such available technology - I missed hearing about Ross' death until the day after his funeral! I read the Morris notice in the Metro grocery store!
My deepest sympathy to Jean, Ray, Marie , Beth and Frank - the members of the family that I know best. Ross will be missed. Best regards - Lois (Ashton) Worden

The world has lost a wonderful man. A quiet, gentle, loving hard working husband, father,grandpa and great grandpa. A man with a warm contagious smile and a heart of gold. A man that for a time in my life I was fortunate enough to call my father in law. You have and will always have a special place in my heart Grandpa. Rest in Peace
To Grandma and all my Ashton Family May your wonderful memories be your strength in the days, weeks and years to come. Love you All
