My sincere condolences Paul’s family. I worked with Brian for many years at Crown Life and only met Paul and sister (conk) a few times. Brian often talked about his children so we knew a lot about them. RIP Paul.

Mr. Ashworth was a really cool and well-liked teacher at Lisgar. He was a great example to students - even though he was never one of my teachers, I always remember him around the halls and the example of physical health... biking to school.

Sorry to hear of Mr.Ashworth's passing . He played a huge influence in my life at Hawthorne Public, in the late 60's . He was my gym and grade 6 teacher. Paul found a way to inspire me to do better . Great sense of humour, great athlete, great person , and a great teacher . Will remember him. My condolences to the family . Frank.Organ

Sorry to read about Mr. Ashworth's passing. I have fond memories of him during my days at Hawthorne School in the late 1960s. He gave me the discipline to run long distance on our school track before school and at lunch, to achieve the 100 mile club. We had great hockey teams under his leadership, including winning the city Championship at the Ottawa Civic Centre. He always wanted us to be the best we could be, including a huge poster he had on the school wall for our track team that said "Beat Broadview". Great memories since I first met Mr. Ashworth 50 years ago.

I will always remember physical geography with Mr. Ashworth at NHS - getting to understand what we were really seeing when we looked at a mountain and how it came to be. Mr. Ashworth also seemed to be able to coach everything - cross-country skiing and track and field come immediately to mind. Another found memory was a HS trip in the Adirondacks led by Mr. Ashworth to climb, I think it was, Mt. Marcy (waking up in a tent covered in snow). His many years of friendship with my father is also extremely appreciated.

So sorry to hear of Paul's passing. Our condolences go out to Paul's immediate and extended family. I remember Paul fondly from our hockey days when he was our stalwart defenceman. Paul was a gentleman both on and off the ice. I also remember swimming with Paul after his injury. Keep your stick on the ice, my friend.

Dear Susan, Val, and Jen, All my memories of Mr. Ashworth were at the cottage of course. Your dad was one of those “cool dads” to me. I always remember him up at the top of the hill overlooking the lake chopping wood or working on the canoe. Every so often he would take out the big yellow 100 horsepower boat and create huge waves for us while on a dingy. Big strong guy that was an imposing figure. He won’t be forgotten that’s for sure - especially when I’m up at the cottage. My deepest sympathy, Dave

Paul became one of my favourite residents at the Grace over the nine or so years I knew him. He was always telling me jokes, some of which were not for the prudish. We talked and watched a lot of sports together and many a Saturday afternoon was spent playing bingo. He never complained about his situation, where others surely would have. My deepest sympathies to Sue and the girls and to all his family and friends. who visited him often. Paul was an inspiration to me and I will miss him very much. Rest in Peace my friend.
