John Edwin Aaskov

26 octobre 193112 octobre 2020

Falmouth, ME- John E. Aaskov, “Jack” to his many friends and family, 88, a lifelong resident of Blackstrap Road, passed away comfortably on October 12, 2020, with his family by his side in Falmouth. He was born on October 26, 1931, at the family farm in Falmouth, Maine, a son of Harold and Olga (Fischer) Aaskov. Jack came from a family of farmers and builders. Jack was involved with farming at a young age but his passion lay in building. He loved his trade and often would say, “if you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life”. If you knew Jack, you knew he would always refer to “a guy” in his thought processes, such as, “if a guy did {this} to do {that} this task could be done easier.” We believe this talented, thoughtful “guy” he was actually referring to was himself! Back in the fall of 1953 in a small church in Falmouth, let it not be forgotten how good friend Carroll Wilson had to nudge Jack in the back, noting the beautiful young German immigrant, Monica, singing in the choir. He told Jack that if he didn’t act quickly, someone else might. So Jack did and they were married July 23, 1955. He and Monica just celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary. The Aaskov family took up roots in Falmouth Maine in 1889. Jack grew up on the land and gave his children and grandchildren the same experience. “The Aaskov Compound” grew over the years with Jack being the backbone, building houses and keeping the family grounded. Jack was an incredible husband, father, brother, grandfather, and friend. You could always depend on him for good advice, a valuable opinion, and help whenever problems would arise. He is survived by his loving wife, Monica; his children, Peter Aaskov, Heidi Almeida (and husband Frank), and Kris Aaskov; his sisters, Ruth Aaskov and June Griffin; grandchildren, Amber, Jacki, Justin, Monica (Moie), and Peter (Cole). He will be missed, and his family will cherish the memories they have of him. For now, we know he is in Heaven working on a project or fixing something. A private service will be held at a later time for family and friends. In lieu of flowers or cards, a donation in Jack’s memory may be made to The ARC of The United States by visiting www.thearc.org Please visit www.lindquistfuneralhome.com to sign Jack’s online guest book.

We will miss Jack! He has been a good friend in so many ways & has helped us with our old farmhouse, which we call the "house that Jack built." Jack was one of a kind, a fine craftsman with a remarkable work ethic. Jack had a plan to "dope it out," & we would always appreciate the result. He will be missed by so many of us!

Dear Aaskov Family

I've read the sad news. My condolences.

I do not know much about Jack. My sister and I were visiting in the early 80's. Here I met Jack, who was a very nice person with lots of humor.

My Grandma, Edith, is from the Fischer family.

My son and I were visiting again about 16 years ago. Have always enjoyed Jacks company.
My thoughts go to the family during this sad time.

Lots of love to your All
Helle Dick

I was distant family but the time I have shared with Jack was wonderful. He was a very proud and caring man. Family was important to him for he worked very hard to give his family a much easier life. God rest his sole.

I was a neighbor of Jack when I grew up. Even though I was junior to Jack by 9 years, we ended up being best friends. It was easy being his friend, all you had to do was hang around him while he worked about 10 to 12 hours a day. He was the hardest worker I ever knew. But he did have time to have fun and he always made time for it. We spent time playing baseball, hay rides, corn roasts in the upper field where Kris lives. He used to make a tobogan jump at the farm, took us on hay rides, did wood projects in his shop with my sister and I. He was very patient and a good teacher. When I got out of the service, I went back to work for Jack. He would let me work whenever I had a few free hours. I was an apprentice printer at the time and needed every cent I could earn and he knew it. He was a brother to me and I feel like I lost a brother.

The best Father in law a girl could ever ask for. Strongest and most stubborn man I ever knew. We all learned so much from him. I will forever remember him for his honesty, integrity, compassion, loyalty and love for his family....I'm proud and fortunate to have had him in my life. ♥️
