Ashley was blessed with many wonderful friends, whom he shared many conversations over coffee and donuts at his garage, and later in his hospital room.

Survivors include his loving wife of 56 years, Susan (Boisseau) Stranahan, whom he married Monday, Oct. 22, 1956; two loving children, Stephen of Morrisonville, and Sara Pray and her husband Blair of Peru; his cherished grandchildren, Jonathan Pray, and Kristen Brassard and her husband Grant, all of Peru; two sisters-in-law, Eleanor Stranahan of Macon, Ga., and Nancy Boisseau of Keeseville; and several nieces and nephews.

In addition to his parents, Ashley was predeceased by his brothers, Willard, George, and Albert Stranahan; and sister, Blanche Crowningshield.

At Ashley's request there will be no public calling hours. Services will be private and at the convenience of the family. Military honors and burial will be held in the Immaculate Conception Cemetery in Keeseville.
