Mark Ashdown (1953-2015) of Cary, NC was welcomed into the presence of the Lord after a courageous and valiant battle with multiple myeloma on March 27th, 2015.
Son of Don and (Hazel) Ashdown, brother to Blake, loving husband to Kristen and model father to Jasen and Carolyn passed away peacefully in his home. A favorite brother-in-law and uncle and respected and loved by many friends and business associates - he was full of life, never knew a stranger and loved his family deeply. A master of all things golf and basketball, he could often be found on the beaches of Ocean Isle walking in the mornings with his wife and playing joyfully with his kids during the day. He was a faithful man of Christ, seeking to bring His kingdom of peace and love every where he went.
He is survived by his father Don, wife Kristen, daughter Carolyn, son Jasen, daughter-in-law Amanda and grand-daughter Hazel.
A memorial service will be held in the chapel at Hope Community Church in Raleigh, NC at 12:30pm on May 1st with a reception following. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society at lls.org. Online condolences may be expressed at cremationsocietync.com.
