Asher Gordon McGirt

Asher Gordon McGirt, 20, of Raleigh died at Duke University Hospital in Durham on August 13, 2015.

Asher was born on September 29, 1994, in Raleigh, NC, to Jonathan McGirt and Janet Golden.

In addition to his parents, Asher is survived by his sister, Ellie McGirt, of Raleigh and his grandfather and step-grandmother, Murphy and Anita McGirt of Blairsville, GA, as well as a number of dear aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Asher was a keenly intelligent young man with a sardonic wit. He had a refreshingly sweet disposition and enjoyed engaging anyone and everyone in discussions about philosophy, cosmology, and anything else he found intriguing. His unique perspective on the world broadened the horizons of all who encountered him. Asher’s wicked sense of humor, his insightful observations, and his love of life will be greatly missed.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to HelpHOPELive or the Kramden Institute.

The family will receive visitors at Bryan-Lee Funeral Home, Raleigh, Tuesday, August 18, 2015, from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.
