Around 11 p.m. Sunday, a woman called 911 to say her husband was injured and bleeding. When paramedics arrived they realized the man had been shot in his sleep and called police.

A 13-year-old boy who is accused of shooting and killing his father remains jailed in juvenile detention Monday.


Jimmie R. Asher, Jr. Age 39, passed away in his home on Sunday, October 23rd, 2011.

He was born the middle of three sons on New Years Day 1972 to his parents, Jimmie Asher Sr. and Kathleen (Curtis) Asher, in Anaheim, CA.

Jimmie graduated from Yelm High School in 1991 and afterwards enlisted into the US Army for six years as a diesel mechanic, and always spoke of how lucky he was to see the world during that time. His career as a mechanic for WSDOT and avid love for the outdoors kept him happy and occupied in many hobbies. Jimmie's greatest love of all was time spent with family and friends. He was especially proud of the life he built for his son, and fiancée and love of eight years.

He is survived by his son Timothy Asher, fiancée Diane Johnson, parents Kathleen Asher and Jim (Elizabeth) Asher, brothers Lance (Stacy) Asher and Robert (Tricia) Asher, stepbrother Adam Brooks, and stepdaughters Johnna and Julie McVey.

He was preceded in death by his niece Kayla Asher Rearden, grandparents Billy Gene Curtis and Barbara Jean Curtis, and James and Patricia Joann Adams.

Services will be held at Mt. View church of the Nazarene in Tumwater, WA at 10 a.m. on Saturday, November 5th, 2011.
