Wallace Ashwood, Jr. Obituary

Wallace Milton Ashwood, Jr., 70, of West Columbia passed away on Sunday, December 31, 2023, in Sweeny, TX. He was born August 13, 1953, in Bay City, TX to Wallace Sr. and Joyce Ashwood.

He is preceded in death by his father, Wallace Milton Ashwood, Sr. and stepmother, Mary Ashwood; grandparents, Alva and Alma Ashwood, and Oscar and Bertie Chavers.

Scooter, as he was lovingly known, leaves fond memories with his wife, Sleeta Ruth Ashwood of West Columbia; daughters, Eileen Ashwood (Paul) of Spicewood, TX, Priscilla Ashwood of Lake Jackson, TX, Kimberly Mitschke (JR) of Sweeny, TX; son, Tommy Ezell (Angela) of Yantis, TX; mother, Joyce Ashwood of Sweeny, TX ; sister, Deidra Tucker of Houston, TX; step brother, Ronnie Griffin of Brazoria, TX; 11 grandchildren; 14 great-grandchildren and a host of other relatives and friends.

Scooter was a Chief Engineer for Crowley Maritime on their ATBs at the time of his retirement. He was a member of the Seafarers International Union, a lifetime member of NRA, and an avid Ham Radio Operator.  

Scooter loved spending time with his family and friends.  He loved cooking for everyone and certainly excelled at this. He enjoyed teaching his grandkids how to throw a cast net and they all mastered the art of the net.  He and Ruth loved to fish at Sargent beach and usually had some grandkids or great grandkids with them.  He loved to hunt, watch his hummingbirds and spoil his dog, Lily.  One thing he enjoyed on a daily basis was reminding his sister that she was older than him. 

Memorial Services will be Friday, January 12, 2024, at 2:00 p.m. at Gulf Coast Christian Center in West Columbia, TX.

Final arrangements were entrusted to Dixon Funeral Home of Brazoria at (979)798-9113.
