Stewart W. Klask, 74, Ada, MN, passed away on Wednesday, July 21, 2021 at Benedictine Care Community in Ada.

Stewart William Klask was born in Ada, MN to Henry and Malinda (Neumann) Klask on March 11, 1947.  Stewart graduated from Ada High School in 1965 and then became a lifelong farmer. He remained active in decision making until very recently, even though a stroke in 2014 had created physical limitations.  Throughout his life he thoroughly enjoyed farming, friends and Schmidt. In earlier days, hunting and fishing were his favorite sports.

Stewart was particularly fond of animals ranging from farm animals to his dogs and especially, cats.

In 1981, Stewart married Joyce Broers and in 1986, Joyce’s daughter, Destiny (Merck) Johnson, joined them to make Ada her home.

Stewart is survived by brother, Roger (Marilyn), Canton, GA; nephews, Steven (Sheila Middleswart), Cumming, GA, Daniel (Tim Chalus), Saugatuck, MI, and Peter (Jennifer), Buford, GA; and great-niece and great-nephew, Kylie Klask and Hudson Henry Klask. Stewart is also survived by Destiny Merck, and a number of good local friends who identify as darn near family.

Stewart was preceded in death by his wife, Joyce; and parents, Henry and Malinda.

Many thanks to the Benedictine Community staff, the Hospice of the Red River Valley and the close friends who provided continuing support, especially during the last couple of years.

The family would prefer that any memorials be directed to The Benedictine Care Community of Ada, Hospice of the Red River Valley, or a charity of one’s choice in Stewart’s name.
