ASHLEY GALE MARK VEINOTTE, 40, of Edmonton, AB passed away in his home on September 22, 2020. Born in Middleton NS on Jan. 29 1980, he was the son of Emma Diann Veinotte, Mark and Marlene Veinotte.
Ashley grew up in the Annapolis Valley, NS but resided in Alberta for the last nine years. Ashley had a love for mechanic work. If it didn’t work, he wouldn’t stop until it did. He wanted to pass on his knowledge of mechanics to his three year old son, Hunter, teaching him how to fix his battery powered truck. He had a passion for hunting and fishing with his family and friends. He loved the outdoors especially camping. He would get his camper out and take whoever was available camping with him.
Ashley left us way to soon. He was a Superman to his mother and always will be. He was well loved by his family and everyone who knew him. He was always up for a few laughs. He was well known for his famous saying “ DON’T USE THE LORDS’ NAME IN VAIN”
He is survived by his mother Emma Diann Veinotte, Nictaux NS; father and step mother Mark (Marlene) Veinotte, Nictaux NS; sister Tanya (Michael) Veinotte, Waterville NS; brother Jason Veinotte, Nictaux NS; step sister Melissa (Jason) Crouse, New Minas NS; son Hunter Veinotte, Edmonton AB; daughter Summer Veinotte, Leduc AB; nieces Kristen, Haley and Kyleigh; nephews Dylan, Logan, Jake and one great nephew, Holden. Ashley also leaves behind many Aunts, Uncles, cousins and friends.
Ashley was predeceased by his maternal grandparents, Lillian and Arnold Jones and paternal grandparents Ruth and Owen Veinotte. Also an Aunt on his father’s side and an uncle on his mother’s side.
In keeping with Ashley’s wishes, cremation has taken place in Alberta. He will be brought back to Nova Scotia for a Celebration of Life to be held at a later date. Memorial donations can be made to the Edmonton Humane Association, or S.P.C.A.
