The man behind Ashton pipes. A big loss for the pipe community and especially sad news for his friends and family.

I had the chance of meeting him a couple of times. He was the very essence of an English gentleman.

This is truly depressing news folks Crying or Very sad I shall fire up my Ashton SHPC year pipe filled with Dunhill's #965 in his good honor...

The circle of life continues, always a sad day when we loose a brother. Mr. Ashton has contributed so much to the pipe community, he will be missed.

Sad news indeed, though I don't own an Ashton pipe, I think I'll have a bowl of Condor (if that ain't English I don't know English) in a nice old (1960's) Ben Wade Canadian in Mr. Taylor's honor Sad

A stunning loss! I have two of his creations; both gems. I enjoyed his occasional missives when he joined us on the old Knox board (maybe on the JR board before that). My condolences to his family. FTRPLT

What a loss! Great pipes and a charming man. I have many Ashton pipes and am smoking a XXX Soveign tonight in his memory. Yes, there are some quality issues with recent production, mortal he was, but what a treat to enjoy the perfect pipe that he often made. He will be missed by many.

Huge loss. I own 3 Ashtons and really like them. I even had one refurbished from William Ashton Taylor himself two years ago, and it came back absolutely beautiful (I had abused it with 1-2 bowl-a-day smoking for two years).

I regret not having seen him at his trunk show at LJ Peretti in Boston about two years ago. A loss to the community, I am sure.
