The answer is yes but it is nearly impossible to predict that that will happen.  And, yes, asthma will often decrease in severity as one gets older and it may actually be easier to control as well, using less medication.

He should still work hard to avoid inhaling allergens and irritants that can aggravate the asthma and take whatever medication is necessary on a very regular basis.

Good of you to be concerned about your Dad.

Good luck
