Paul Ashby

Obituary of Paul Russell Ashby

Paul passed peacefully Tuesday, December 28th, 2021, with his loving wife by his side, after a brief but fierce battle with cancer. Paul was loved by all who knew him, he was generous, caring, and had the biggest heart. He loved his family and spent most weekends with his grandbabies who meant the world to him. Of all the things he was proud of, being a Papa was top of the list. Paul married the love of his life Paisha on November 6th, 2010. They had known each other as children, reconnected in 2010, and had been by each other’s side since. Paul was born in South Bend, Indiana to his parents Billy Royce Ashby and Marie Ashby. Paul is survived by his wife Paisha (Hundt) Ashby, sister April (Paul) Greenfield, brother Brad Bowering, sister Twila Kleitz, son Nathan (Kayla) Cranshaw, daughter Elizabeth Cranshaw, grandbabies Jocelyn, Sophia, and Owen, and his twin nephews Peyton and Edward. Paul is also survived by many friends and family who love and will miss him dearly. Paul was proceeded in death by his father, both paternal grandparents, his maternal grandma, and uncle James. Paul loved to bowl, shoot pool, and watch wrestling. He was a lifelong fan of the Green Bay Packers, and as his wife is a Bears fan this led to many jokes, jabs, and laughs when the two played each other. Paul was quick to smile, quicker to laugh, and was loyal to all he loved. He will be missed forever, but we are comforted to know he is back with his father whom he loved and missed dearly, and no longer in pain. Paul’s wishes were to not have a funeral, but a celebration of life, that will be announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family has asked for donations be made to help with the costs associated with losing Paul. A Go Fund Me has been set up, “Family needing help” set up by his sister April Greenfield.
