David Ask

David Henry Ask, 71, of Faribault, Minn., died on Sunday, April 15, 2018, after an almost two-year battle with brain cancer.

He was born on July 6, 1946, to Myran and Lucile Ask in Lanesboro.

He was attached to VP-24, home ported in Norfolk, Virginia and honorably discharged from the Navy.

Upon returning home, he worked for Honeywell in Hopkins.

He met and married Evon Marie Favre, his wife of 48 years.

He worked construction, farmed, worked for Jerome Foods and Shattuck St. Mary's until he retired. 

He loved his family most of all, especially time with his two grandchildren, Reanna and Gabriel, fishing, golfing, tractor shows and being with friends and neighbors. 

He was known for his humor, his teasing and his knack for being able to talk to anyone. He knew someone everywhere he went, was very observant of the fine-details and was always willing to help others.

He is survived by his wife, Evon; a daughter, Sara (Rick) of St. Cloud; a son, Roger of Faribault; grandchildren, Reanna and Gabriel of St. Cloud; his mother, Lucile of Lanesboro; his brother, Michael (Norine) of Lanesboro; sister-in-law and brother-in-law Ginny and Jerry Robicheau; brother-in-law, Donald Mackenthun; sister-in-law, Joni Favre; many nieces and nephews and great-nieces and great-nephews.

He is preceded in death by his father, Myran; mother- and father-in-law and sisters and brothers-in-law.

Funeral services for him were held at Our Savior's Lutheran Church in Faribault on Saturday, April 21, with the Rev. Jeffrey Sandgren officiating. Interment was held at Maple Lawn Cemetery in Faribault with military rites provided by the Central Veterans Association.
