Obituary (September 01, 2010)

Word has reached Jobber News of the passing of veteran jobber salesperson Jim Ashton.

Surrounded by his family, he passed away peacefully at Grand River Health Centre, K-W Hospital, on Monday, July 19, 2010 at the age of 56. Beloved husband of Rae Anne. Loving father of Jim (Julie), Kendal, and Kelly (Wray). “Grandpa” will be missed by his “rugrats,” Adam, Ashley, Tara, Ashton, Spencer, and Troy. Great-grandfather of Blake, Brianna, Kayden, Logan, and Lincoln. Cherished son of Elsie and the late Morris Ashton. Brother of Richard, Joanne, Randy, Linda, Morris, David, and Dan.

Jim Ashton was employed by Britton Automotive for 29 dedicated years. He was a longtime member of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #530 where he was installed as the Deputy Zone C2 Commander in 2009 and was a president (2004-2009).

As expressions of sympathy, donations to K-W Poppy Fund in support of “Why We Remember Week,” Legion Branch #530, or the Grand River Regional Cancer Centre would be appreciated by the family. Visit for Jim’s memorial.
