In memory of Atlas Air Pilot First Officer Conrad Aska

Posted by Indira Castro on 22nd March 2019
It's hard to believe you are no longer here, this void & emptiness is still so unbelievable, Words cannot describe this great pain I have in my heart. Conrad you were such a special person in my life, you were my friend, the father of my daughter, my ex husband and most importantly FAMILY! I was truly blessed to have you in my life , we met when I was 18 years old and you were such a wonderful friend to me, supporting me with everything for over 20 years with your gentle and caring nature. One of your beliefs in life was the importance of being authentic with people, saying what needs to be said because it’s good for the relationship and for the soul . You always offered valuable and truthful advice that I will surely miss. We had that special bond together that is unbreakable and that is what I will always cherish. You had a humble, loving, kind, caring and natural soul. your magnetic smile will be missed by all who ever knew you! you were such an exceptional and devoted father and that can never be replaced, your beautiful spirit will live on through our daughter Kayla and she knows how much you loved her. Forever you will live on my heart & soul and I will always love and miss you! May you rest in peace Conrad, until we meet again.

I'm crying as I write this because its so unbelievable that a beautiful soul like yours was taken from us so soon. We met our first year in college -I was a lonely soul with no friends and no family -in a strange country. I was in the library pretending to study and you walked right up to me so confident and made conversation - That encounter spanned 24 yrs of a bond whether near or far. Conrad - your jokes, your unbelievable stories, your smile, your cooking, your outgoing personality, your brute honesty, and when you ended our conversations with a "love u"- I took all those simple things for granted.. Now looking back at texts, it hurts to know that these are the last love you's Im gonna get. The last joke, the last good advise, the last everything. To his Dad, Kayla, Elliot, Alicia, Corretta, Indy and other relatives and friends, my heart goes out to you. Be strong.

My deepest condolences to the Aska family. It was an honor to have met you and see the love you had for Conrad. The pictures posted of Conrad show the most amazing and welcoming smile. From that smile I can imagine the special person he was. Conrad was a wonderful member of the Atlas family and you all are in my thoughts.

You will be 4ever and ever missed Conrad. We both share and have always shared our Caribbean vibe and roots 2gether. For the Flight Attendants that have had the opportunity of flying with you, they spoke nothing but nice things always about you :). I am still in complete disbelief and trying to come to terms with all of this. The tears keeps coming and going :(. My deepest, deepest condolences to your Family and your beautiful Daughter indeed. I will tremendously miss that ever broad smile and laughter of yours :). On the good note here: "I will keep the Faith however, that when the Lord returns, which we know and for those who knows of his soon coming, I will see you again"! I will tremendously miss you my friend :(, but only for a little while, just a little while longer. "Love Always & 4Ever"! Mary :(!

Conrad you were a father, son, brother, uncle, ex-husband, step-father, best friend and confidant to your loved ones. Your kindness, one of your greatest attributes, was displayed on multiple occasions. Your generosity spared no expense. Your big bright smile would light up any room. Your personality spoke without words. Your love for your family was unspeakable. Your palate was undeniable; you were indeed a great cook. Your love for music was food to your soul; it was a joy to watch you dance. Your passion for flying was your childhood dream that you turned into a career that you so loved. While losing you has left a huge void in the hearts of so many, your legacy will live on forever. You will be truly missed beyond words or comprehension. May your soul rest in eternal peace! We love you forever! Coretta, Alexander and Brandon ❤️

My heart is heavy and broken. Conrad was a life partner that I dreamed and asked the Universe to deliver. He was caring of others and demonstrated this on a regular basis. His kindness was felt by many people we would meet when we were hanging out. I am very grateful for the opportunity to have had him in my life. We shared a lot of great times. I was able to meet some his coworkers at Atlas and I remarked how wonderful they were (breakfast buddies at Ontario, CA). I pray for strength for all of us to move forward with the blessing Conrad was to each of us and every time we think of him, smile big. Love always and forever.

I would like to express my deepest sympathy to Conrad's friends and family. I enjoyed meeting him when he interviewed and having him around the training center as he completed his initial training. What I remember most was his cheerfulness and smile. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. Miami ATC (Tower) representatives came over to the Training Center last Thursday and delivered flowers and the Sympathy Cards uploaded to the photos. Included in the signatures are the controllers from Saturday, February 23rd when 3591 took off for Houston. We are a very tight-knit industry, and when one experience’s a tragic event, the support is overwhelming. The originals and a beautiful flower arrangement and cards are in the Miami Training Center Lobby.

I worked with Conrad often. One of my favorite pilots to work with ever. It was never a dull moment working with him. Always had jokes, always had a smile and always looked out for his flight attendants. He had a great spirit and will forever be remembered. We love you Conrad

As a flight attendant at Mesa Airlines, I flew with Conrad on several occasions. I remember him being laid back with a few jokes to tell. A winning smile. He is missed. My prayers are with his family. May God grant you with peace. Be blessed.

I had the privilege to fly with Conrad. The one thing which sticks out the most was his laughter, personality and love for life. The world lost a good man. Godspeed, brother till we meet again.
