Obituary of Ashely Scott Tillman

Ashley Scott Tillman, 59, of Charlotte, passed away Thursday, July 16, 2020. Born Sunday, November 6, 1960 in Charlotte, North Carolina, he was the son of the late Dewey and Sarah Altman Tillman. 

Ashley was a writer and actor. He also worked with Best Friend’s Animal Society for many years. He was an alum of UNC Chapel Hill and the Lee Strasburg Institute in New York. Ashley worked and lived in Los Angeles for 30 years before moving back to Charlotte to help his family. He was an extremely generous, dedicated man with a larger than life personality. He was always ready and willing to lend a helping hand to anyone in need and if he could not help them he would find someone who could. A quote from a mentor, and the late comic book icon Stan Lee, describes Ashley perfectly: "That person who helps others simply because it should or must be done, and because it is the right thing to do, is indeed without a doubt, a real superhero.”  He was our superhero.

Ashley is survived by his loving wife and partner of 20 years, Shari Raynor; and many more loving family and friends.

In addition to his parents, Ashley was preceded in death by his brother Dewey Tillman III.

Due to the current pandemic, a memorial service is not scheduled at this time.
