    I would like to express my sincere condolences to Kenny’s family. It was always a pleasure to play with Kenny on Tuesday nights at Edgewood and in the tournaments. Probably the most memorable tournament I ever played in was with Kenny and his son Mike. He will always hold a fond place in my heart as it was he who nominated me to be on the EMC board and I always felt he was kind of mentoring me. He certainly had a big impact on my life and I’m sure many others. He will be missed

    So sad to learn of Kenneth Asks passing. He was so helpful and friendly to everyone and a joy to all who knew him. He was indeed a gentleman and a great person. Esther and Ken were wonderful caretakers and will be trully missed. All in the building missed them when they moved to MPLS.

    Fargo I want to pass the peace of God which Kenny is now experiencing to the rest of the family. I am sorry I will be out of town the remainder of the week and unable to attend the services.
    I feel very lucky to have gotten to know one of the great guys in life thru the game of golf playing in the EMC and being in his group on several opportunities. I am sure he is getting a game of golf together as I write you. He showed many people the correct way to play the game and that transfers to the game of life.
    We will miss you here Ken but have a lot of great memories to reflect on.

    May the peace of God which passes all HUMAN understanding be with you and keep our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

    I met Ken when I lived at the apartment where he was a caretaker. He was a wonderful man, always happy, kind and extremely hard working. I watched in awe as he has taken care of Esther over the years. Just watching him, a person could see the love in his heart for everything he did and everyone he knew.
