Paul Douglas Ash
MILTON — Paul Douglas Ash died peacefully at his home in Milton, Del. on Friday, June 3.
He was surrounded by his devoted wife, Pat, and his three loving siblings, Carol, John and Steve, and their spouses. Douglas died of cancer and had anticipated death with clear eyes, a courageous heart and his always present sangfroid. He recently wrote to an old friend: “As my life journey is winding down it’s so comforting to have my wonderful loving wife Patricia, two brothers in this area and my remote family in Rensselaerville always by my side. It is also knowing in advance so people won’t be shocked in the end.”
Douglas was born in Gettysburg, Pa., Dec. 4, 1944, the third child of Mary Regina (Thirkel) and Joseph Ash. He grew up in East Riverdale, Md. and graduated from DeMatha High School in 1962. After a stint as a computer programmer for the National Security Agency, Doug entered the Army and was posted at Fort Myer, Va. He worked several years for the political consulting firm of Matt Reese and Associates, which sent him to work on political campaigns around the United States and in foreign countries. He retired after 10 years at Coinmech in Elkridge, Md.
Douglas was a longtime member of the Elks and the American Legion. During retirement, he was very busy improving his house and puttering in his woodworking shop. He and Pat loved taking cruises and visiting resort casinos.
In addition to his wife, Patricia (Preney) Ash, and his siblings, Douglas is survived by three granddaughters and many nieces, nephews and their children.
Viewing and services were held Monday, June 6, 2022 at Short Funeral Services, in Milton, Del.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to Delaware Hospice Center, 100 Patriots Way, Milford, Del. 19963.

Kenneth A. Armstrong
OCEAN CITY — Kenneth (Kenny) A. Armstrong, 62, of Ocean City, died on Monday, May 30, 2022.
Born in Topeka, Kan., Kenny was raised in Indianola, Iowa, along with his brother, Anthony (Tony) Armstrong, and his sister, Michele (Armstrong) Bogo, by his
mother, Marilee (Miner) Armstrong. Kenny was a loving uncle to his four nieces and one nephew, Kortni (George) LaBonte, Kyle George, Kamryn Brown, Giovana Bogo and Isabella Bogo.
Kenny lived life to the fullest, often going days without sleep in pursuit of the highest elevation, the freshest snow, the next NASCAR race, the next fishing trip or the next experience; and he always made sure Tony came along for the fun. He was active in many groups that shared like-minded interests and goals. Some of these groups are the Gunslingers, the Weed Wackers, the Ride Operators and the Yankees (a local team.) Quick with a story, a smile or an ear, he was a friend to all and will be missed by many.
Using his keen sense of the weather and his eerily accurate thumb, Kenny was a legend at Fager’s Island for his ability to time the last note of Tchaikovsky Overture of 1812 with the setting of the sun on the bay. In honor of Kenny, we ask that you take the time to really enjoy the sunset every once in a while.
