SOUTH PARIS — Ashley Washington Everett left for the Happy Hunting Grounds the morning of June 2.

Ashley was born Oct. 14, 1923, the second son of George W. Everett and Cora E. Bishop Everett. Living in the same house in Norway for 90 years, he spent his life devoted to everything and anything related to hunting and fishing, frequently observing that he worked the second shift at C.B. Cummings Dowel Mill for 38 years solely because it afforded him the maximum amount of time possible in both endeavors.

He also raised chickens and had an extensive garden, largely so he could supply his neighbors and friends with eggs, corn, potatoes and tomatoes. He helped many people over the years by removing nuisance animals from around their homes.

An influential experience in his life, like many of his generation, were the years he spent in the U.S. Army during World War II, serving in Signal Corps, crossing Germany and Austria in 1945.

Ashley was predeceased by his parents; and his three siblings, Earl, Marie and Muriel; and a pack of various, but all loved, hounds.

He leaves behind his dog, Betty; his special friends, Bonnie Story, Tim Martin, Danny Payne; his adoptive family, the Clevelands; and a niece and five nephews.
