City of Minot Honors the Legacy of Longtime Resident Lynn Aas
The City of Minot honors the memory and legacy of longtime Minot resident Lynn Aas, who passed away October 28 at the age of 100.

“On behalf of the City of Minot, I want to extend my condolences to Lynn’s family,” Minot Mayor Shaun Sipma said. “Lynn is a true American hero, and we thank him for his exceptional service to his country during World War II. As a member of our nation’s Greatest Generation, Lynn put his life on the line to protect our country and our way of life.”

Aas was a decorated veteran who received numerous honors during his service in World War II, including the Bronze Star and the Purple Heart. After the war, he earned his law degree from the University of North Dakota. He served in the North Dakota Legislature for four sessions, and was a visible and respected member of the Minot community for decades.

“Lynn left an indelible mark on our community through his years of dedicated service to making Minot the great city that it is today,” Sipma said. “He was a friend and mentor to many, and we will carry his memory as an example of what true community service means. Our thoughts and prayers are with Lynn’s family.”
