Obituary

Blake A. Asmussen, age 39, passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, January 4, 2022, in Wisconsin Rapids, WI.

Blake was born on December 16, 1982, in Beaver, PA, to Daniel and Colleen (Vleeshouwers) Asmussen. He married the love of his life, Catina Asmussen (CasaDeCalvo), on July 4, 2020, in Wisconsin Rapids, WI. Blake was known for his unforgettable and burly laugh. Everyone that met him said that his laugh could start parties. He had the best sense of style, looking sharp with his matching shirt and shoes. Blake was charismatic, had a big heart, and always put others first. He was also an automotive enthusiast, especially Hondas.

Blake was a talented baritone sax musician, performing with the University of Wisconsin band at the age of 13 and traveling with them to Austria and Germany.

Blake had an everlasting bond with the love of his life, Catina. He fondly called her Cat, and often said, “I’m the lucky one because I have you.”

Blake is survived by his wife: Catina Asmussen; parents: Colleen Asmussen and Dan (Nancy) Asmussen; brother: Tyler (Cami) Asmussen; grandmother: Gail Vleeshouwers; uncle Pete (Carol) Vleeshouwers; aunt Cindy Nulty; and cousins: Molly, Abby, Hannah, John and many family and friends.

He is preceded in death by his grandparents: John Vleeshouwers, Louis and Margaret R. (Murray) Asmussen; aunt: Patricia Cardona; special pet: Gertie, Blake’s beloved bulldog.
