James Asher Obituary

James Calvin Asher was born July 12, 1944, to parents Beverly Junior Asher and Alma Ella
(Conwell) Asher in Stafford, Kansas. He died September 16, 2022, at the age of 78 in Livermore,
California. Jim was the second of four children. He was raised on a farm near Stafford with his
siblings and graduated from Stafford High School in 1962. Jim started college after high school,
then married Anne (Williams) and they moved to Texas for employment. He earned his
business degree from the University of Houston. They raised their two girls, Kathleen and
Karen, in Texas, Louisiana, and California.
In 1990, Jim moved back to California where he met and married Janet Keaster in 1991, gaining
a stepson, Michael Keaster. Michael went off to college and Jim and Jan moved to Texas for
Jim’s new job opportunity, settling in Flower Mound for the next 27 years.
Jim loved his family. He enjoyed playing with his grandchildren. He was an avid gardener and
golfer. For many years he was a rockhound. He enjoyed playing games, especially card games,
and perusing antique stores for his next treasure. He retired from Sr. Metal Bellows in 2009,
enabling Jim and Jan to travel and visit many places, including Australia, New Zealand, and
Jim was preceded in death by his parents, Beverly and Ella Asher. He is survived by his wife,
Janet; daughters Kathleen Putman (Mike) and Karen Villarreal (Tony), and stepson Michael
Keaster; grandchildren Ian, Julianna, and Mikayla Putman, Ashleigh Hart, and Riley Douglas. He
is also survived by all of his siblings Larry Asher (Phyllis), Barbara Hildebrand (Jerry), and Don
Asher (Gayla), and many nieces and nephews.
