Could there have been a greater guy? Thank you, Asa Candler, for all the laughs we had while our kids were doing their sports. What I always loved about the Asa-man is that he seemed to be in a perpetually great mood even as any and all hell broke loose. Gonna miss you, good man. Love, Shack Reply to this comment

Asa, So glad that our paths crossed in Athens, on the golf course, and in other fun places. You always were kind to me no matter the setting. Plus, your presence ensured a pleasant time. I was fortunate to know you. Play well, no three putts. Fred Reply to this comment

Dear June & Asa - May God hold Asa VI in his Loving Grace now for all eternity. May He also grant both of you, and the entire Candler family, peace and understanding during this deep sadness! We unfortunately found out about his passing via this Facebook posting and therefore missed the Memorial Service yesterday. There are no words to express our sadness at his passing and your loss. Asa was one-of-a-kind and I will miss him and our ‘planned’ tee time for this Spring at Castle Pines GC. Love to you both! Stuart Reply to this comment

Deepest sympathy in the loss of eldest son. Parents, Asa & June warmly guided their family to protect and enhance the Candler legacy. Asa Vl knew his role in the family RE business and pursued it faithfully and optimistically---he knew everyone ! His passion as excellent golfer and pilot was evident. His firm handshake exemplified his confidence and performance in both --reminds one of Arnold Palmer. Father, Asa V, and the three sons made a formidable foursome. Now, the empty seat will surely be missed but not forgotten as Vll and Vlll are just behind. Hope to meet you next on the lesson tee where the grass is ALWAYS green and the wind at our back. Our thoughts, memories, and prayers for all your Family. Sincere condolences, Jim and Cheryl Reply to this comment

I'll always remember our golf times together "Extricate yourself from trouble--you might knock the next one in the hole". I've used your expressions hundreds of times. Godspeed to you, old buddy Reply to this comment
