Obituary

Obituary for Vernon L. Ashway Sr.

Vernon Leroy Ashway, Sr., age 81, of Waynesboro, PA was called home to be with his loving Lord on Monday, March 29, 2021 at the Chambersburg Hospital. Born February 28, 1940 in Chambersburg, he was a son of the late James W. and Susan V. Burkholder Ashway and step-son of the late Clara Wingert Ashway who died in 2014. He attended the Chambersburg Area High School. On January 19, 1957 at the Greenwood Gospel Tabernacle (now known as Greenwood Assembly of God) he married his loving and devoted with, Vonnie “Jenny” Monn Ashway. Vernon was a loving father and devoted husband.

He was employed until his retirement as a truck driver for Jones Shipley Express in Hagerstown, MD. He also drover at one time for TA Bayer and Bowman Trucking. Prior to truck driving he worked at the former Landis Tool Company in the shop. Early in his life, prior to his marriage, he worked at Ron Rebba Farms in Ringgold and Greenridge Farms in Waynesboro. He was a member of the original ATH&L Fire Company (now a part of the Waynesboro Volunteer Fire Department) and helped to start the ATH&L Ambulance Squad (now known as the Waynesboro Ambulance Squad). He was a member of the Calvary Assembly of God Church where he started the Tape Ministry. He ran the sound board for over 20 years for Sunday morning worship services and when possible for weddings, funerals, and Wednesday night services. He was a past Sunday school superintendent and also served on the church board. In his retirement from truck driving, he worked part-time as a funeral assistant and driver for the Lochstampfor Funeral Home, Inc.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by four children, Kathy Fike (Garry), Denton Ashway (Michelle), Vernon Ashway, Jr. (Stacy), and Robert Ashway (Lori), all of Waynesboro; three grandchildren, Susan Elliott, Scott Ashway, and Taryn Ashway.; three sisters, Josephine Fishel (Don) of Cumberland, MD, Katherine Small (William “Bill”) of Chambersburg, and Phyliss Waddell (Edward “Ed”) of Frederick, MD; and a brother, Lloyd Ashway (Dianna) of Chambersburg. Also surviving are many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and great-nephews. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a grand-daughter, Kaelyn Ashway.

A Celebration of Vernon’s life will be held at 11:00 AM Friday, April 2, 2021 at New Franklin Assembly of God, 2355 New Franklin Road, Chambersburg, PA with Pastor James Brunetto and Pastor Dwan Newsome officiating. Interment will follow at Parklawns Memorial Gardens. The family will receive friends from 10:00-11:00 AM Friday at the church.

Sorry to hear of Vernon's passing. I was just thinking of him this week, remembering being in a quartet with him when we were young and singing on Easter Sunday morning for a sunrise service in Ringgold, MD.
