Their loss will be overpowering and our immediate feeling is to reach out to them with messages and offers of love, support and the desire to help in any way.
This is how we can do that.
Deeply feeling this loss, is also us, his many friends from all aspects of his life including his great work mates and so many members of the strong and tightly knit Central Coast football community who knew Ash.
We are all left feeling devastated and feeling helpless by the loss of a great and funny man, coach and mentor, who has had such a positive, friendly and always caring impact on so many.
Ash, as you all know, or will hear, was a dedicated, loving husband to his Jacqui, a devoted son and family man and role model to his adoring kids and grandkids.
He was a loyal friend and a highly respected and celebrated coach and mentor within clubs across the coast, with his beginnings born out of the Mountain District Football Club and subsequent life membership there through to his current position with the Central Coast United representative program. He was also a loud and proud and mad Sydney FC supporter and gave up his time for this passion down there with them.
So many people have had the privilege of crossing paths with Ash and had their lives made a little better in some way for knowing him.
This is our way as friends and a community in mourning, to show our love and support to Ash's lovely family right now in their grief.
Hopefully this will allow Jacqui the time she requires to get back on her feet by easing the financial minefield she must now negotiate, after they bring Ash home from Melbourne and to give him the send off he truly deserves.
This is how we can help Ash's family, so please dig deep Central Coast, the broader community and dear friends.
