NOAH ALEXANDER ASHTONPosted: June 6th, 2018
On June 1, 2018, Noah Alexander Ashton passed away suddenly at home with his family. During his short 6 years and 2 months with us, he touched many hearts and stole many cuddles. He was the best cuddler. Noah was born in Medicine Hat on April 1, 2012, with a rare condition called CHARGE Syndrome which gave him many extra obstacles to overcome but he never once let that define him or slow him down. He took every challenge head on and figured out how to do what he needed to in his own way and his own time. Noah taught everyone he came across how to overcome obstacles, persevere, think outside the box, love life and to laugh. He had the most infectious and unique laugh which would bring a smile to your face in the worst of times. Noah shaped our family to who we are today and who we will become. He was our greatest teacher. We gave Noah our best life… his best life. We were so lucky and made sure he lived and was loved and boy, did he give us life, laughs and love. He will be forever loved and forever missed. Noah was the loving son of Laura and John Ashton; loved little brother to Elijah; big brother to Oliver and Charlotte; adored grandson of Jerry and Mary Ashton of Moncton, NB and Stewart Robertson of Pomquet, NS. Noah will be greatly missed by his Uncles Greg, Jeff, Edward and Mike and his Aunts Elaine, Emma, Kelli and Anne; his three cousins, friends, classmates and the village it took to help Noah thrive and defy all odds. Noah was predeceased by his loving Grannie, Kathryn Robertson and his Great Nan, Helen Robertson both of Stellarton, NS. Those wishing to pay their respects may do so starting one hour prior to the Celebration of Noah’s life which will be held at Cook Southland Funeral Chapel on Friday, June 8, 2018, at 2:00 pm with Major Murray Jaster officiating. Following the service there will be a small reception where Noah’s favourites of chocolate pudding and Dilly Bars will be available.
In honour of Noah, we encourage you to wear a super hero t-shirt or his favourite colour, blue. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations to the CHARGE Syndrome Foundation or to the Alberta Children’s Hospital would be appreciated.
