Werner Netel Aase, 71 of Stamford, VT died on Friday, January 4, 2019 at his home. He was born in Isdalstø , Norway on July 17, 1947 a son of Nils Rasmussen and Alma M. (Johnsen) Aase. He immigrated to the United States with his family in November of 1953.
Werner went on to receive his Bachelor’s degree in biology and chemistry from Rutgers College, his Master’s degree in English Literature from the University of New Hampshire, and his Secondary Teachers Certificate from Massachusetts in biology, chemistry, and English.
He was a veteran of the United States Army, serving during the Vietnam War as an Army Medical Corpsman. His duties included screening, treating, and prescribing medication for soldiers in Troop Medical Clinics at Fort Lewis, Tacoma, Washington.
In his younger years, Werner worked as a medical assistant in the Department of Gastroenterology at St. Vincent Hospital in Worcester, MA. He later worked as a substitute teacher for high school English and science in Northwestern Massachusetts and Southern Vermont, including the Stamford School, before joining the chemistry department at Hoosac Valley High School in Adams, MA where he taught from 1979 until his retirement in 2002.
Werner had many special interests, including snowshoeing, boating, hiking, and photography, and was very proud to have owned and operated his own 32-foot tugboat in the fjords of Norway from 1975-1976. He was a member of Amnesty International, the ACLU, ASPCA, and the American Legion.
Survivors include his three brothers Anders Aase of Flanders, NJ; Olaf Aase of Stamford, VT; and Rein Aase of Norway; two sisters Louise Taule of NC; and Anna Selle of Norway; 6 nieces and 11 nephews and many grand nieces and nephews.

We met Werner sixteen years walking on Mowry Beach throwing sticks to his dog. He loved the adventure of his boats and where they might take him. He thought Lubec looked a lot like Norway loving to explore the islands around Lubec and Campobello, never afraid for adventure. We would motor out around Campobello, find a whale coming right along side of the boat, Ernie would say, Werner what are you going to do? he would just put the boat in neutral and watch it swim very close by. Werner was like a brother to us, he will be missed, Summer Street in Lubec will not be the same without our warm dear friend Werner. Our sympathies to all whoever knew Werner. judy and ernie williams lubec, maine

We will always remember Werner. He was a man that was admired and respected by all that had the privilege of knowing Werner as a friend. His kindness and hospitality and respect for all as well as keen intelligence will be remembered by all that gathered at his home in Stamford. His beloved loyal dog was a favorite with all especially us as dog lovers. Our sympathies to all that loved Werner. David and Joan Hobbs

My deepest sympathy to the Aase family. Werner was a kind person and a good friend. Keep the memories of the good times close to your heart. He will be missed.

My deepest sympathies to the Aase family and friends. The Bible offers not only comfort and hope for the family but hope for those who have fallen asleep in death. Jesus spoke of a resurrection in which those in the memorial tombs will hear his Father's voice and come out... As you await this time continue to lean on one another for comfort and support.
