Aj’s family while we struggle with his loss.

Donation protected
On August 17th Aj got stung by a bee at work. He ended up in the hospital, while his whole family going through deja vu from 2016. We knew that last time even though it was extremely hard and heartbreaking to watch him struggle to come back to us he made almost 100% recovery.
This time as the days went by, scan results, test results and Drs reports came in. We were faced with our worst nightmare.

Ashley James Morris 41 of Tacoma, WA peacefully passed away on August 30th, 2023, surrounded by loved ones.

He was a fierce provider. Working in the roofing industry for almost 20 years before venturing into gutters. He was never afraid to work long hours and weekends to provide for his family.
Ashley had a larger-than-life personality with a huge heart and infectious laugh. He was always up for an outdoors adventure whether it was camping with friends or family, 4 wheeling or hiking. He would take his family on long weekend drives to see parts of the state he’s never seen. He would spend hours outside working on his favorite truck with his son, even putting on his new rims and tires in the dark with his phone's flashlight in his mouth. He loved breakfast any time of day especially if it was at his favorite Kelly's café, and of course donuts on Sundays from pao’s. He could talk for hours catching up with friends/family who live coast to coast or on the porch with his wife and kids giving the kids one of his famous lectures on life lessons.
He was a great son. A loving father, grandfather and husband. Loyal Brother and truest of friends. Who chose to live each and every moment to the fullest. All with a cup of coffee in his hand.
Many people have asked how to help. We are asking if you will donate to his wife and kids while they struggle to grieve and rearrange their life without him.
