Aaron Allen Ashby, age 13, passed away on Saturday, January 9, 2021 at his home surrounded by his family. Born on July 17, 2007 in Oakland, he was the son of Gary and Nicole (Chapman) Ashby.
Aaron attended Crellin Elementary and Southern Middle Schools. His passion was baseball and he loved playing all sports. He was a member of the Oakland Youth Baseball Team and Tri-County Basketball Team. Aaron made the effort to attend practices and games even when he was ill or recovering from treatment. He was an inspiration to many others who were also battling cancer because he continued to live his life and seek treatment with a smile on his face. Aaron enjoyed spending time and joking around with his family. He had a wonderful sense of humor and his laughter was contagious.
In addition to his parents, Aaron is survived by a brother, Jordan Ashby; a sister, Aubrey Ashby; grandparents, Mickey and Patricia Chapman, Roger and Carolyn Ashby; a great grandmother, Claretta “Jean” Hawk; two special uncles, Mickey and Michael Chapman; two special cousins, Cory and Joey Ashby; numerous other aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, and his dog, Mia.
