Our deepest sympathies...May your memories keep you strong. Rick and Brenda
I'm' so sorry to the Haskell family for their loss, I had the pleasure of growing up a house down from the Haskell's and spending quality time at their house and getting to know Ma and Dad. My fondest memories was when Mr H would watch Jepordy he would know every answer to ALL the questions! He was a very smart man and loved by all. I know his passion was gardening, smoking cigars but most of all spending precious time with his family. He will be forever missed with loving memories he left behind. Love, Michael Di Vito and Family
