Radio Interview

Here's a radio interview I did on local Ithaca radio WRFI 88.1.
Ithaca Watkins Glen Community Radio
The conversation is far reaching taking in philosophy, theology, social issues and "what makes me tick"! It streams directly on iPhones and iPads. If you are on a computer it downloads to iTunes. (Not sure about the non-Apple world.)

Philosopher Larry Ashley's Last Thoughts

Here are Larry's last thoughts, dictated to his son Chris and shared with permission:


To my friends and family, You have been wonderful in helping me through this. Thank you to all for your kindness. To be a bit pretentious, I feel I have led my life in a favored way. Friends and philosophy have stood as a bulwark against difficulties, and helped give my life meaning and thoughtfulness. To my friends and colleagues in Cortland, you have been the greatest. To my union coworkers, I have enjoyed working with you and being trusted with the responsibility of leadership. That helped invigorate a large part of my life. To my family, we seem to be scattered around the world, with trouble making contact. Know that although I can't find you all now, I am still thinking a lot of you. I also treasure the many friendships which have grown up with of ex-students and sports companions. Thank you and love to you all, Larry
Rest in Peace dear friend.
