Paul Aslagson

August 19, 1944 — July 17, 2021

Alexandria, Minnesota

Paul Larry Aslagson, the son of Alden and Mary (Svoboda) Aslagson was born on August 19, 1944, in Alexandria, MN and was raised on the family farm in Holmes City, MN.   Paul graduated from Jefferson High School in Alexandria in the class of 1962 and continued his education by attending the University of Minnesota, Morris for one year.  He and Sandra Allison were united in marriage on January 30, 1965, in Alexandria.  Three children were born to this marriage, Pamela, Michelle, and Steven.  Paul and Joni Ellingson were united in marriage on May 5, 1978, in Sisseton, SD.  Together, they had a daughter, Jamie.  They maintained their residence in Alexandria.

Paul started his own business, Paul L. Aslagson Masonry in 1966.  Since then, Paul built foundations for many homes and businesses in the Alexandria area.  He also bricked fireplaces, made patios, and poured many, many driveways. He became a Master Mason after years of experience, dedication, hard work and a sharp and creative mind.  He took pride in the work he did, which made him one of the best masons in the Alexandria area for over 55 years.  Even at the age 76, Paul was still being called to do work laying brick and stone which was something he enjoyed.

Paul’s passion for the outdoors included hunting, fishing, relaxing, or even cutting wood.  He took many trips to Alaska, Colorado, and Canada to fish and hunt with friends and family.  He volunteered his time with organizations such as Pheasants Forever, Ducks Unlimited, and Habitat for Humanity.  Paul was deeply involved with the Fraternal Order of Eagles #3063 as a trustee and the Past Exalted Ruler of the Elks Lodge #1685 in Alexandria.

Honest, hardworking, caring, and family-centered are just a few words that best describe Paul.  He had a strong work ethic and love for his family.  He loved family get-togethers and time spent with his grandchildren.  He had the ability to visit with just about anybody and was loved by everyone who knew him.

Paul L. Aslagson, died suddenly on Saturday, July 17, 2021, while at his son’s home in Colorado Springs, CO at the age of 76 years old.  He is survived by his loving wife, Joni Aslagson of Alexandria; daughters, Pamela (Doug) Will of Lino Lakes, MN;  Michelle (Duey) Aslagson-Klimek of Alexandria; son, Steven Aslagson of Colorado Springs, CO; and daughter Jamie Aslagson of Alexandria; eight grandchildren, Sarah Will, Conner Will, Ethan Will, Nicole (T.J.) Carlson, and Gavin Schmidt, Elizabeth (Andrew) Proctor, Kirsten Aslagson, Christina Aslagson,; six great-grandchildren and one soon to be born great-grandson; sisters, Carol Garrelts of Alexandria and Joan (Jerry) Albers of Villard; good friends, Sandy and Emeroy Johnson of Garfield; many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.  He was preceded in death by his parents, granddaughter Alexis Aslagson and brother-in-law, Butch Garrelts.
