David Paul Asay, age 63, passed away peacefully surrounded by those who loved him on April 13, 2023 at his home in Sandy, Utah. David was born on December 29, 1959 to Richard and Annette Asay.
Dave lived a life full of many adventures and experiences which he enjoyed and loved to share them with others. He was an EMT, firefighter for the BLM, owned a fitness repair business, gave river rafting tours on the Snake River, a ranger in the Tetons and most of all was his love of being part of the Park West Ski Patrol.
His loves included rock climbing, toy collecting, woodworking, and his favorite was the many concerts of the Grateful Dead he attended.
He was a caring person who helped others and his favorite was making and serving sandwiches for the homeless every Sunday.
Survived by his siblings Sherrie (Jack) Love, Steve (Jeanne) Asay, Brent (Wendy) Asay, Linda (Jeff) Rupp; his many nieces and nephews, he lovingly called the Rugrats. Preceded in death by his parents, and his best friend and loyal companion Echo.
Dave’s family would like to thank the staff at Harmony Hospice, especially Jamie, Shannon, Maddie and Laurie for their devoted care and love of Dave. And the many who cared and loved him at his home in Sandy.
Dave lived his life on his own terms.
A Celebration of Life Open House will be held on Friday, April 28, 2023 beginning at 6:00 PM at Lone Peak Park - Outdoor Gazebo Pavillion,

Happy trails brother, enjoyed my time with you missed you
I loved you and I will miss you my good friend and desert traveler!
Rest in peace Dave I hope your body is healed and you are skiing deep powder in heaven. You were more than a friend you were a brother. I will keep your memory close to my heart. I will think of you often with a smile on my face. Dave made a big impact on my life. We were best men at each other's weddings. We worked together, lived together, and had many adventures together back in our heyday. There are so many stories I could tell. Just know that I loved him and I will miss him. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.
