Thank You New Franklin for honoring my son Joseph.

 

FRANKLIN , OHIO — The city is designating West Nimisila Road
between South Main Street and state Route 93 as the
Joseph Allen “Joey” Ashley Memorial Highway to honor the
U.S. Navy machinist 2nd class who died in a submarine accident in 2005.
Ashley, a 1999 graduate of Manchester High School , lived on the stretch
of road when he enlisted in the Navy in 2001. The 24-year-old sailor was
on the nuclear submarine USS San Francisco on Jan. 9 when it struck
an undersea mountain in the western Pacific.
He was thrown 20 feet, striking his head on a large metal pump.
He lost consciousness and died the next day. Sixty other sailors were
injured but Ashley was the only one who died.

Mayor Paul Adamson will dedicate the Memorial Highway signs May 27
during a ceremony at the Manchester Cemetery , 1030 W. Nimisila Road .
The ceremony will follow the New Franklin Memorial Day Parade, which
kicks off at 9 a.m. at the Grace Bible Church on Manchester Road and
travels to the cemetery. Ashley’s mother Vicki Matics will serve as the
grand marshal at the parade.
Ben Ashley, Ashley’s brother and a warrant officer in the U.S. Army,
will speak on behalf of the family at the dedication ceremony. Ashley’s
father Dan, brother Danny, and three sisters Melissa, Vickie, and
Stephanie, as well as extended family members, will be in attendance.
