Haskell ,as he liked to be called or “Great One” by his grandchildren, was a brick mason and a loving father, grandfather, great-grandfather and great-great grandfather. He enjoyed discussing politics with his friends and family, watching television, and bluegrass music. We (Nowana and Yvonne) remember watching tv with him and their grandmother as children. They loved watching The Grand Ole Opry, rodeos, Hee Haw, Perry Mason and Columbo. I loved spending my time at their house staying up until 11:00 p.m. watching Hee Haw and listening to them laugh. He loved his coffee. I remember feeling important when I would carry his coffee to him down the hall and not spill any. He enjoyed bluegrass music and would often watch it late at night along with a cup of coffee. He would sing funny songs to me and my sister as children and continued the tradition with his great-grandchildren and great-great grandchildren.
