George Victor Ashbaugh,
BMCS Retired



Our father, George V. Ashbaugh, passed away on Armed Services Day, May 17, 2008 from complications of pneumonia. He was born to William and Roberta Ashbaugh, and was one of nine children.
Dad spent time in the Lyman, Washington area, attending a one room school house through the eighth grade where he fell in love with this state and always wanted to return. At the age of 17 he lied about his age and enlisted in the Navy close to the end of WWII. His Naval career spanned 30 years in which he retired with honors in 1975. He also did stints in both the Korean and Vietnam Wars.
His duty stations included, Sand Diego Naval Station, Johnston Island, Hawaii, Subic Bay, PI, and Naval Reserve Station Everett, Washington. The reserve center was his last duty before he retired. He was back in Washington at last.
Dad was a dedicated baseball coach. He coached Pee Wee, Little League, Majors and American Legion baseball for 14 years. He won several championships and made many friends. He had many hobbies and especially loved hunting and fishing with all his buddies, kids and grand kids. He was a perpetual "tinkerer" fixing things around the house and had his own garden in his back yard. His house was always open to family and friends, who loved his stories and cooking. Dad had a great sense of humor and had a nick name for every one in his family.
Dad was preceded in death by his wife of 43 years, Jean; seven of nine siblings; both parents; and a granddaughter, Rosett McClure.
Surviving him are his youngest brother, Lloyd (Pat); daughters, Sharon McClure, Elisa (Daryl) Eby; son, Victor (Heather) Ashbaugh; grandchildren, Richard and James McClure, Cory, Tory, DeMarie and Angela Tune, Kyle, Eby and Chelsea (Matt) Bounds, Victor and Garrett Ashbaugh; three great-grandchildren; and a cose friend, Violet Humphries and her family.
There was a military ceremony at 2:30 p.m., on August 15, 2008, at Tahoma National Cemetery. For information or directions call Victor at 360-871-7623 or Lisa at 360-320-0326.
