Sending my sincere condolences on the passing of John. I have good memories of his days playing football for the Blue Devils, and his frequent trips past our house in Barnhill, heading to Darlene’s house for a date...Godspeed

Mr. Ashbaugh has long been an avid supporter of his family. He rarely if ever missed any of his girl's activities. He and his wife raised great girls and are well respected in the community. He will be missed by many. My thoughts go out to the girls and their families.
