LEONARD PRESSLEY ASHTON, JR 1919 - 2001
Leonard Pressley ASHTON, Jr. was born at home on April 14, 1919 in Wellington, Collingsworth, Texas to Leonard Pressley Ashton, Sr. and Elsie Wilson Ashton. He left us on November 08, 2001 in Scottsdale , Arizona where he was surrounded by his girls.
When Pressley was 11 years old, he supported his family by
delivering papers before school and then rushing to wash dishes at a
local restaurant before he started his school day. After school, he
again washed dishes and was often able to delight his family with
leftover food. Many nights, the food he brought home was the only
food his poor farming family had to eat. As many others during the
depression era, Pressley contracted tuberculosis and was taken from
his family, scared and homesick, to a clinic for a year when he was
only 13 years old. He often expressed that was the most horrible and
lonely year of his life. He worked the rest of his life to surround
himself with family and friends.
