Dean Curtis Ashman

Virginia Beach - Dean Curtis Ashman passed away quietly surrounded by his loving family on December 23, 2016. He was 69.

Dean was born Jan 31, 1947 in Philadelphia, PA to Frank and Marion Ashman. He is a graduate of Lenape Regional High School in Medford NJ. Dean proudly served his country as a member of the United States Navy and was honorably retired as a chief petty officer. After his Navy career, Dean attended Old Dominion University where he graduated with honors and earned his degree as a educator. Following college, Dean enjoyed teaching at Western Branch High School for 20 years.

Dean is survived by Barbara, his loving wife of 47 years, His daughter Christin East and her husband Mike, his son Michael Ashman and his wife Amy, his son Marc, and his brother-in-law James Mitchell Jr., whom Dean had come to think of as a son, and his grandchildren, Cullen, Robert, James, Alexis, Gina, Jason, Emma, and Aiden.

Dean loved life. He was a compassionate man who deeply loved his family and his fellow man selflessly. His love was evident in his work, from crafting wood to feeding the homeless; he gave his very best to everything he did. He loved deep and laughed often. He was dearly loved and we will miss him and pray for his eternal peace.

Dean will be honored with a formal ceremony by the United States Navy during which he will be returned to the sea.

A celebration of his life is planned for Saturday, January 28th, 2017 at 2PM at Grace Covenant Presbyterian Church of Princess Anne, 2228 Princess Anne rd. Virginia Beach, VA. 23456.
