The news of Mr. Ashe's passing greatly saddened me. Fist time I met him when he was working as a consultant for KSB/Germany and GIW its Mining Division in Augusta/GA What an amazing personality he had and a professional person he was. My favorite moment with him was when after retirement, I ran into him on our trans-ocean cruise to Italy by surprise. We just enjoyed this time together. My sincere condolences Hellmut Wegner

In 1980 Don hired me at ASH Pump and he let me be my owne man. He told me when first hired me to follow something his father/my grandfather told him, "Be honest no matter how much it hurts and things will work out".

Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I’m so sorry to hear of Mr. Ashe’s passing. He had a great sense of humor. My favorite when he would come into our office was “ you have that square needle for me?”.

Don was President of Ash Pump when I joined as a part-time Lab Tech in the mid 1970s; I never left the business he trained me for. His obituary is correct regarding his accomplishments. I was fortunate to benefit from how he got it done. He made everything simple and clear. He came to my Father’s funeral when I was the lowest on the Totem Pole and mentored me through major career milestones. We traveled the US, Canada and Europe over almost five decades and became dear friends, piling up some successes and many good memories. One was visiting in Naples, catching him in the middle of work for Saint Vincent de Paul. He lived a good life personally and professionally. I was glad I could share with him in August that I was retiring next year. My last piece of precious time with him. Dear God, I miss him. My thoughts and prayers go out to Michele and Cindy who took such good care of him at the end and Dave, Doug and Dan who were colleagues at “The Pump Company” and their families. It’s a cross-generational Blessing that my son became friends with one of The Amigos.
