William Bryan Ashley, age 58 of Pablo, passed away on April 6, 2021 in Missoula MT. Billy was born in Polson, MT to William and Lois (Doney) Ashley on February 14, 1963. Billy graduated from Ronan High School in 1981. He worked for several years as a skidder operator for several logging operations on the Flathead reservation. In the early 90’s, he joined with his father and they became Ashley Logging for the next 27 years. Mark Hartung, lifelong friend, also worked with Billy and his dad as a sawyer completing the crew of 3.

Billy had a love for the outdoors which he inherited from his dad. He loved to hunt and fish or just take a ride through the woods. He was also an avid sports fan with his favorite teams being the Raiders, Lakers, and of course the Griz!
