James Maurice Asdell

1929 - 2013

James Maurice Asdell was born April 20, 1929 in Sullivan, Ind. and passed away in Mesa, Ariz. on Dec. 8, 2013.
Jim lived most of his life here in Arizona. He was a longtime resident of Tonto Basin. He was married twice to the love of his life, Elinor. Guess it was so good the first time that twice made it even sweeter.
Jim and Elinor are survived by their son, Tom, and his wife, Faith; daughter, Mary, and her husband, Douglas McBride; grandchildren, Carrie Baize, Paula Sweatt, Cory McBride and Devon Alley; five great-grandchildren; and many dear friends.
Tom’s daughter, Carrie, and her Aunt Mary helped Jim’s dear friends Bill and Lori Brown with his final arrangements. His funeral will be at Brunson Field, 53569 N. Hwy. 188, MP 269.5 Brownsville Road, “The Browns’ Ranch” in Tonto Basin, Ariz. at 11 a.m. on Saturday (tomorrow), Dec. 14, 2013.
There will be a potluck to follow.
