Eugene Turner Ashby, passed March 17th, 2019 peacefully in his sleep in the town he made his home, Polson MT. He was born June 3, 1938 in Bluemont, VA to Eugene Kilgore Ashby and Hazel Sisk Williams.

Gene Ashby, professional teller of tall tales, self proclaimed master fisherman, beer loving cowboy and Louis L’Amour's biggest fan, road off into the sunset on Saint Patty's Day last.

Gene was survived by 2 brothers, Jerry and William and a sister Joan; 22 grandchildren, 4 great grandchildren, 5 children - Missy, Amber (Michael), Gene, Leah (Shawn), Micah and 2 special step daughters, Lorrie (Adam) and Donell.

Gene moved his family from New York to Montana in 1973 and made Polson their home. He loved this wild country and should've been born a century earlier. He took great delight in hunting, fishing and regaling others with tales of his youth.

His heart was huge and his smile bright. He will be missed by many as he rides off into the light.

There will be no services as he wanted only his close family to have a small gathering and feed the fishes that fed him and his family his whole life.
