With great sadness we announce that, on the 13th January, dearest Ashley passed away peacefully in Montreal, Quebec, Canada with his loving and devoted wife Whitney Cousins and her parents, Lorne and Marlene Cousins by his side after a bravely fought four year battle with cancer.

Ashley was a precious son of Edna and the late John Spain, much loved brother of Jonathan Spain and Deborah Ross, cherished brother-in-law of Lara Cousins, Shannon Cousins White (Marshall) and adored uncle and guardian of Olive Dorothy White.

Ashley was a gentle soul, loved by all who knew him. He will always be remembered for his kindness and his enthusiasm for life.  

We invite you to remember the life of our beloved husband, son and brother, Ashley Spain.  Please join us at the Park Hotel at 1pm on Sat 22nd April, with the opportunity to speak at 2pm.
