It is with deep sadness that we learned of the passing of Daingerfield Ashton. Daingerfield earned his M.F.A. at Winthrop in 2002 with his thesis installation entitled “Chaos: Without Form and Order.” Daingerfield taught art at Wingate University for a number of years before his recent retirement. Many of us also recall him as was one of the first selfless Red Cross volunteers on the site of 9/11, 2001 in NYC where he worked for over month before his return to Winthrop. He was a life force who will be missed.
