Eddie enjoyed life to the fullest and never took a single second for granted . He loved sitting down and having conversations whether he knew you before or not, and because of this he never met a stranger. He enjoyed being outdoors hunting for the biggest deer or turkey or hitting the water to catch some fish. If he wasn’t hunting he could be seen enjoying a game of softball. He loved catching up on Nascar on weekends or attending a local dirt track to watch racing. He was truly a Tennessee native constantly showing his love for UT football. Even with all his life passions nothing compared to his true pride and joy, his daughter Haley.
Along with his daughter Haley Grace Ashworth, Mr. Ashworth is also survived by a brother Harold Edward Ashworth; ex-wife Beverly Ashworth, several nieces and nephews and a host of close friends.
