On the few occasions I got to spend with Tom, I saw how much he added to Dee's happiness. He was a very kind, gentle man and I enjoyed all my visits to AZ to spend with him, Dee and the family. I know he will be deeply missed and my heart and thoughts go out to Dee and the family.
I so much admired Tom during my short tenure at AiResearch and he and I hit it off as friends early on. I remember when he asked Jim Lloyd and I to help him install a roof on his horse corral in north Scottsdale. It was hotter than hell, but Tom said that he always got most of his outdoor work done in the middle of summer. We paid dearly for his belief. Pounding lead-head nails into galvanized roofing on a hot summer day while drinking warm Coors beer was not my idea of a good time, but I'd do it again in a heartbeat for my friend, Tom Ashe.
There are many hearts that ache for you at this time of loss. And though no one can take away your sorrow, I hope the support of your family, friends and others helps give you the strength you need from day to day.My heart goes out to you Dee having just gone through this myself. Please forgive me for not being more involved, but I just can't at this time. I send you my deepest sympathy and love. Charlotte Martin
My deepest condolences to The Ashe family. I am so sorry for your loss, especially you, Chris-my heart breaks for you. Tom was a great guy who treated my own son like family. I am glad Tom you are no longer suffering, are with our Lord and reunited with Susan. Please give her and Kal a hug from me. RIP
I am sorry for the loss felt by all his family and friends Tom worked for me during the 70's. He was truly creative and proved to a valuable asset to our group. Tom handled computer programming and analysis and was credited with creation of some key analytical tools. He was an outstanding human being, always pleasant and helpful. I truly believe he was a genius with wide interests. He seemed to have a photographic memory. Trivia games with him were always one sided and he always won. I will always remember him fondly.-------------Ray Rackley
