FEB. 6 I SAM ASH MUSIC I OBITUARY
President of Sam Ash Music Passes Away
Paul Ash, president of Sam Ash Music, passed away on Feb. 5. He was 84.
Paul worked with his father, Sam Ash, founder of Sam Ash Music, until his father passed away in the mid 1950s. According to an interview Paul did with Music Inc. in December 2013, he and his older brother Jerry were determined to carry on the company’s name and traditions.
“I have always felt that the goal is to keep the reputation we inherited from our father,” Paul told Music Inc. “Enhance it and protect it. It’s not like we had a generic name like Musicland or something. This is our family. Our father’s name. It’s the most important thing that we own.”
