Ashlee Linton Obituary, Death – The news that one of our members had passed away suddenly and unexpectedly came to us yesterday, and it left us in disbelief and with crushed hearts. Tom and Ash have been with us since the very beginning, back in 2009 when we were teaching boxing in a variety of school halls located throughout the area. They stayed with us through the launch of UB in 2017, and they continue to be a part of our team to this day. Tom Hellings was in a class all by himself. He was the kind of person who could keep a conversation going for hours on end, had a cheesy smile, and had a wicked sense of humor. He was a kind and imposing giant. The news of his demise is sure to bring sorrow to the hearts of a great number of people because they had the good fortune to have known him.
To tell you the truth, we have not gotten over the fact that such a lovely and compassionate man who devoted his life to his family was stolen from us so unexpectedly. He lived his entire life for his children and grandchildren. He is survived by his long-term partner Ashlee Linton and their two lovely kids, Kaylee, who is 6 years old, and Claire, who is 10 months old. When he went away, he had just been 37 years old. We are reaching out to the local community as well as a wider audience in the hopes that we may collect as much financial assistance as possible in order to relieve some of the forthcoming strain that will be placed on Ash, provide her with the well-deserved time she needs to spend with her daughters, and enable her to come to terms with everything that has transpired.
Any and all gifts are much appreciated by our organization. We also have a huge freezer here at Universal Balance, and if someone would like to cook a meal for Ash and his family and store it in the freezer, we will deliver it to Ash for them. We are here for you, Ash, and we are confident that with the love and support of a large number of people, you will emerge victorious from this ordeal. We would want to take this opportunity to offer Tom’s family our deepest and most heartfelt condolences during this very difficult time.
