Ellithorpe, Richard Asa, age 28, of Lebanon, TN, died November 5, 2017.
Asa was a graduate of Mt. Juliet High School and was an employee of Aldi’s warehouse. He was a coin collector and a trivia buff. He enjoyed music and was an avid football fan. He especially liked the Pittsburg Steelers! Many times Asa grew his hair and contributed it to Locks for Love.
Asa lived life to the fullest and had a great love for his family and friends. He helped everyone and did not pass judgement on others.
