Peter E. Haskell, 58, died on Friday, March 28, 2014 at the Vermont Respite House in Williston. He was born in Ipswich, MA on August 2, 1955 the son of Robert H. and Lillian (Wilson) Haskell. He was a graduate of Ipswich High School. On October 15, 1983 he was married in Gloucester, MA to the love of his life, Amy DeGennaro. They later moved to Vermont to be closer to family. Peter had a great love of animals, often rescuing dogs, cats and even baby skunks. He was an avid X-C and downhill skier, a fixture for many years on the trails in Stowe. Peter spent his summers as a child living on a boat on Lake Winnipesaukee with his grandmother Barbara, who was influential in his love of animals, skiing and boating. He spent his recent years cruising Lake Champlain in his purple Baja. His other passion was visiting old amusement parks, especially Kennywood in West Mifflin, PA, where he would win giant stuffed animals and give them away to children to watch the smiles on their faces. Peter worked in the auto body industry for many years as a technician and manager. This led him to his last job of 10 years as an Insurance Appraiser. Peter leaves his wife Amy Haskell of Milton; two brothers, Robert of Maine and Dana of Florida. His nephew Kirk Haskell and wife Mary and their children Havalin and Bryce, who are very close to Peter and Amy. His dogs, especially his best buddy Augie, and his other nieces and nephews, James, Joshua, Sara and Hannah. There will be a gathering to celebrate Peter's life on Tuesday, April 15 from 4 to 7 pm at the Ready Funeral & Cremation Service Mountain View Chapel, 68 Pinecrest Drive, Essex Junction.
