    Dear Friends and Family,

    The world has lost a wonderful person. It is with gratitude and love for the life he shared with us that we announce the passing of Ashley Bryan, renowned artist, writer, storyteller, on February 4, 2022. He was 98 years old.

    In our lives there have been few people as special. His joy of discovery, invention, learning and community has had a profound impact on us all.

    A complete obituary and detailed biography can be found at the Ashley Bryan Center's website, ashleybryancenter.orgThere is also a link where you are most welcome to share your thoughts and memories of Ashley.

    There will be a Memorial Celebration held on Islesford, Maine on July 13, 2022, which would have been Ashley's 99th birthday. Contributions can be made to the Ashley Bryan Center in memory of Ashley. Gifts will be used for the expansion and upkeep of The Storyteller Pavilion, the centerpiece of Ashley's legacy.


    The Family


    Please keep the Bryan family in your thoughts and prayers.

    With a heavy heart,
