Eugene Ashe, Firm Founder, Dies
Eugene Ashe, 78, president of Eugene Ashe Electric Company, one of the prime electrical construction outfits, in the Southwest, died Saturday in a hospital.
Ashe, who with his wife had been making his home at Western Hills Hotel, also operated a 5,000-acre ranch 60 miles northwest of Fort Worth in Wise County, where he raised Hereford cattle and Angora goats.
His company did the electrical work on the new First National Bank. Ashe, a native of Roodhouse, Ill., moved to Fort Worth in 1907. He started the electric company that year and incorporated it in 1913.
Except for 10 years on the ranch, he had lived in Fort Worth since moving to Texas. He was a member of Julian Feild Masonic Lodge 908, Moslah Temple Shrine, the Dallas Consistory of Texas Scottish Rite, Trinity Episcopal Church and the Fort Worth Club.
He also was a member of the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association.
Surviving are his wife; a daughter, Mrs. H. E. Kessinger Jr. of Fort Leavenworth, Kan., and a sister, Mrs. H. C. Day of Eureka Springs, Ark.
Funeral services will be held at 3 p.m. Monday in Robertson-Mueller-Harper Chapel with Rev. William P. Barnds, pastor of Trinity Episcopal Church, officiating.
Burial will be in Greenwood.
Pallbearers will be Floyd Scott, Paul Rathgeber, D. G. Carlton, Herbert C. Wade, G. C. White and Grover Moore.
