In loving memory of Abner Askew

Honor Abner's wishes by making a donation to the National Federation of the Blind!


Mr. Askew was born in Lewiston, Bertie County, NC, on April 24, 1927, the son of the late Abner Riddick Askew and Annie Mitchell Edwards Askew.  He graduated from Ahoskie High School in 1944, and following graduation attended Louisburg College.  While there, he was drafted into the United States Army and was stationed in Japan.  Upon his discharge from the Army, he entered the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where he graduated with a degree in business administration.

After graduation from Carolina, Abner accepted a position with NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) in 1950 where he had a long and distinguished career.  He served as Chief, Administration and Finance Office of the Manned Spacecraft Center (Johnson Space Center), in Houston, Texas.  He retired from NASA in May 1984.
