Ashen Conner Field

Age 2

Spanaway, Washington

Baby boy killed by his father

By the age of 2, he had lived in three states. Born in Valdosta, Georgia, he stayed in New Hampshire for a year while his dad, a member of the Air Force, was stationed in Korea. He later moved again to Washington State with his mom and big sister.

He had boundless energy and creativity. Whenever his mom was in the kitchen, he was with her, practicing his own cooking skills.

On March 13, 2018, less than three months before his third birthday, Ashen Conner Field was shot with his sister and mother while sleeping at his home in Spanaway, Washington.
