Obituary: Asher Herman Brody

Asher Herman Brody

July 5, 2013 – November 15, 2014

Our adorable little boy, Asher Herman Brody, was born July 5, 2013. He died Nov. 15, 2014, in the loving embrace of his family. Blessed with a beautiful smile and infectious laugh, he brought pure joy to his family and everyone who knew him. He possessed a warm and loving personality, a love of animals and a passion for cars and trucks. He found joy and delight in music and even at his young age, a penchant for playing ball. Asher walked boldly and courageously through the storm of therapy that was needed to combat his cancer. He was a fierce, brave fighter and incredibly, he met every day with a positive attitude and a smile on his face. He loved his sister, Parker.

A funeral service for Asher was held in Greenwich, Connecticut, on Tuesday, Nov. 18, 2014.

He is survived by his parents, Tyler and Megan Brody, and his sister, Parker, all of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; his uncle, Eric Brody, of Old Greenwich, Connecticut; his paternal grandparents, Steven and Karen Brody, of Greenwich, Connecticut; his maternal grandparents, Tony and Annie Harris, of Breckenridge, Colorado; and his maternal great grandfather, Stanley Kramer, of Huntington, Long Island.

Asher was predeceased by his aunt, Pamela Harris, of Breckenridge, Colorado. He was laid to rest next to Pamela at Valley Brook Cemetery in Breckenridge, where a private family grave site service was held.

Tony and Annie Harris wish to express their gratitude for the continued love and support of this wonderful community.
