Ian Asay

June 9, 1990 ~ September 08, 2017

Service: September 13, 2017 1:00 P.M.
   Location: The Commons

Ian Legrand Asay passed away the night of September 8, 2017, in a motor vehicle accident near Bozeman. Ian was born June 9, 1990 in Billings, Montana and throughout his travels, he called Montana home. Although Ian left us far too soon, he will forever leave a mark on the people he knew, and he will be greatly missed.

Throughout his adventurous life, Ian gained experience in more work arenas than most of us do in a lifetime – everything from becoming a Ferrier to a senior operator on a flow back rig in the Bakken Oil Fields, and more.

On a bit of a whim, Ian went to school for barbering and happened upon a career he’d love and give himself to until the day he died. Being a barber solidified Ian’s love for trendy hair, enviable beards, outrageous tattoos, and a community of people from all walks of life he would unquestioningly call his own.

Ian was truly one of a kind. Caring, generous, funny, and fearlessly genuine, he made friends everywhere he went. From the time he was just a little guy, Ian worked at his daily mission to make people laugh. No one found him to be funnier (or brought him more joy) than his soul mate and fiancé, Samantha.

While we ache for the loss of Ian’s life, we take comfort in his faith. While Ian was not a religious man (and some might consider him endearingly irreverent), he carried a simple, authentic faith in God and the importance of family and community. Together with family and friends, we honor the life he lived so fully.

Ian is survived by his father and mother, Bryan and Margaret Asay; his sisters and their spouses, Jeannine Gates and Ted Gates, Ellen Harwood and Jeremy Harwood; his brothers and their significant others, Evan Asay and Amy Bordeau, Isaac Asay and Hilary Hottee; his fiancé, Samantha Wiest; and a large and loving family including aunts, uncles, cousins, and too many friends to count.

Services will be held Wednesday, September 13 at 1:00 P.M. at The Commons on the corner of Baxter and Love Lane. Join family and friends for coffee and dessert following the service.
