Edgar Dillion Asher

Edgar Dillion Asher, 77, of Payne, Ohio, passed away Monday, May 9, 2022, at his home.

Ed was born in Beverly, Kentucky on April 24, 1945, a son of the late Clara (Bowens) & Edgar Ray Asher.

Growing up, Ed enjoyed ginseng gathering and squirrel hunting and was a member of his local 4H club. He spent time helping out his parents at their country grocery store in Beverly and eventually graduated from Red Bird High School. Ed then went on to proudly serve in the US Army. Following his years of service, he worked at Uniroyal Goodrich in Woodburn for 41 years. In his free time, he enjoyed hunting, fishing, gardening, cutting firewood, auctions, and collecting knives and hatchets.

Ed was a hardworking, soft-spoken, and God-loving man. He was always willing to lend a hand when needed and cared deeply for his family. Ed found many fond moments in his time spent with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Family truly meant everything to him.

Wayne; sister, Joyce Johns of Cincinnati; grandchildren, Jaelen (Jason) King, Kaleb Pachuta, Lisha Hatfield, Rylen Asher, Jackson Pachuta, Braxten Asher, Quintin Pachuta, Madison Pachuta, & Isabel Layman; & 3 great-grandchildren with one more on the way.
