Howard L. Aslinger was born June 20, 1940 and passed away on June 16, 2009. While here with us he made a huge impact on all that met him.
When he was 11 years old he contracted polio which therefore put him in a wheelchair for the rest of his life. He did not let this inconvenience stand in his way to lead an active and productive life.
Howard was president of Rotary, and Jaycees and was JCI senator #22234, and was active in every sport you could imagine. He was a great coach to all his daughters and many other young athletes.
He helped get the Cape Area Youth Soccer Association (CAYSA) program going and was CAYSA president and CAYSA Select president and was very influential in getting soccer programs at the High School level in Southeast Missouri.
He was an American Family insurance agent for 32 years.Before that he worked for Hahs Stegameyer insurance, and his first job was with Otto Dingeldein.
He married Jean Phillips and had 3 daughters. Now he also has 7 beautiful grandchildren.
He never let his inconvenience get in his way of being a success.
Since he did not have all the opportunities that he deserved when he was younger he always said he would like to start a schloarship for people with disabilities to further their education. So in honor and memory of him we are making this possible.
