My Condolences to the Ask family. I met Steve when we were in 7th Grade. I enjoyed his sense of humor. He was fun and funny. I kept up with him on Facebook. I enjoyed the music he would occasionally share. I will miss his presence on Facebook. Rest in peace Steve.
Steve was one of my dearest friends growing up and through out life. He was one of the kindest, funniest, and truest friend one could have. It could be years in between visits and we could just pick up as if no time ever passed. People that were lucky enough to know him were truly blessed. Rest In Peace my friend. I’ll always cherish our memories. Mike, Dan, and families cherish your memories with him. My prayers are with you during this difficult time.
Steve will be missed. cherish the wonderful memories of him forever. Love Nancy and Rob SchultzMemorial Tree was purchased for the family of Steven Mark Ask by Anonymous.
To the family of Steve ,
I worked with Steve at Knight Seed. He was a wonderful person and enjoyed so many wonderful memories of him. As we all heard the news we were in shock as he will be dearly missed. After seeing the posting on facebook you can tell he had so many friends that loved him. Thoughts and prayers to your family during this hard time.
Michael, Daniel, Paula and Ryan, our sympathy to you. Back in 2013, Steve was so thoughtful to come all the way to Glenwood to attend the funeral of Irene Ask, his granduncle Francis's wife. Francis and the family appreciated his coming. He continued the love of knowing the Ask family history and Norwegian heritage. Peace to all of you. Jean and Lyle Ask
