Robert Leonard Ashcraft, age 94, was born in rural Jefferson County April 5th, 1926, the son of Robert Martin Ashcraft and Effie Koonce Ashcraft and met his Lord on April 19th 2020.
He was preceded in death by his childhood sweetheart and wife of 39 years Jeanetta Horne Ashcraft and later by Laura Ashcraft; his parents and brother, Thomas Elton Ashcraft.
Mr. Ashcraft was an employee of Arkansas Power & Light Company for over 40 years and owned and operated Ashcraft Electric until age 85.
Leonard and Jeanetta moved to McGehee as a young married couple and spent their lives participating in the life of their community. As an active member of First Baptist Church Mr. Ashcraft served as a Deacon. He was a member of the Sulphur Springs Masonic Lodge for 73 years. And even though disabled, as the result of a childhood illness; one of his greatest joys was coaching Little League Baseball teams. A model train enthusiast, he built his own extensive layout which he delighted in sharing with his grandchildren. He was a devoted Razorback fan, continuing to attend games until his later years. Traveling became a passion, as he visited all 50 states, Europe, South America and Canada.
He is survived by his daughters Sharon Johnson (Jerry) of Hot Springs and Sandra Reifeiss (Gary) of North Little Rock, 4 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren.
Services and interment for Mr. Ashcraft were held at Brown Cemetery in Jefferson County under the direction of Ralph Robinson and Son Funeral Home. Memorials in honor of Mr. Ashcraft may be made to Brown Cemetery.

For as long as I can remember my Pappaw Leonard was a part of my life. He was encouraging, uplifting, and caring. He loved me as his own and loved my family as his own as well. He’s the only Pappaw I ever knew. We never ended a phone call or conversation without telling each other that we loved the other. As he is now resting in peace with our Lord and Savior, I can take comfort in knowing that he knew how much he was loved. He will forever be deeply missed and loved. I’m grateful to have had him in my life for 33 years. Love you Pappaw!

Ours hearts are so sad to learn of Leonard's passing. Thirty three years ago, he came into our lives. He became my daughter's Pappaw Leonard when they were 3 and 5 years old. Oh how he loved them both and how they loved him. He was a good man and we are blessed for having been able to know and love him as we did. So many wonderful memories we will cherish forever. RIP, Pappaw Leonard.

My Pappaw Leonard was an amazing man who loved, laughed, and lived with his whole heart. He and Granny Laura had a wonderful 33 years together. He loved her family just like his own, and we loved him just as strongly. I’m sorry we didn’t know about the funeral to be able to send flowers or our love. Pappaw was a special man in my life and to all of the Donaldsons. He will always be dearly missed.

It was with sadness we were informed of
Leonard's passing. Having worked with
Leonard at AP&L/Entergy and living
in McGehee on two occasions, we
became good friends over the years.
Yes, he was a great Razorback fan and
I was proud to provide him Razorback
tickets to many games. Ann and I are
proud to have had the opportunity to
know Leonard. We can have comfort
in knowing he is now in a better place.
our prayers go out to all the family
during this sad time. God bless.
