William Roberts Haskell Obituary
William Roberts Haskell passed away March 15, 2014 in Tucson, AZ. He is survived by his wife of 51 years, Ellen Haskell; son, Frederick Haskell; daughter, Karen Mellenberndt and his wonderful son-in-law, Raymond; grandchildren, Kendra and Danika Mellenberndt; sister and brother-in-law, Karen and Jimmy Grimm, all of Tucson. In addition, he has an older sister, Gail Redfern, and her three children of La Jolla, CA. William was born on November 13, 1938 in Tucson, AZ. He attended local schools with a two year high school stay at New Mexico Military Institute in Roswell, NM. He attended the U of A and spent over two years at Mexico City College. He found his way to San Francisco where he met the love of his life, Ellen Kircher. They married in February 1963 and moved to Tucson to await the birth of their first child. William worked for his father and uncle as an early computer programmer for Haskell Linen Supply, which is now Mission Linen, before moving on to start his own business ventures. He was a gentleman in every way and a loving father and husband. William spent his life helping others and easily became everyone's best friend. His keen insight into people and issues enabled him to give the best advice along with his ever present cloth handkerchief. William was an avid reader, a movie lover, a loyal Wildcat fan, and enjoyed the simple things in life; mostly time spent with the people he loved. Donations can be made in William's memory to the Humane Society of Southern Arizona. Arrangements are by ADAIR FUNERAL HOMES, Dodge Chapel.
