John Cheves Haskell, Sr.

December 4, 1925 ~ September 9, 2013

John Cheves Haskell, Sr. age 87, died peacefully at his home in Mill Creek, WA, on September 9, 2013. John was born on December 4, 1925, in Wenatchee, WA, where he graduated from high school. He attended Gonzaga University for one year in the Navy V12 program, then transferred to the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, where he finished college in Naval ROTC and met Marilyn Terry, his wife of 66 years. John was commissioned as an Ensign in February 1946. John and Marilyn were married in Albuquerque on September 1, 1947, then moved to Oroville, WA, where they raised their family. John was an active member of the community and a partner in Heavypack (formerly Haskell & Burns), an apple warehouse and orchard business. The Haskells moved to the Seattle area in 1986, to be near their family.

John is preceded in death by his parents, Charles Thomson and Emma Louisa (Bourn) Haskell; and siblings, Louise Haskell, Tom Haskell, and Mary (Haskell) Biele. John is survived by his beloved wife, Marilyn; children, Karen (Richard) Haskell, Louise (David) Haskell Erickson, Terry (Scott) Haskell Cartier, John (Vicki) Cheves Haskell Jr.; niece, Fredrika (Pete) Haskell; six grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.

At John’s request, no service is planned at this time. Remembrances can be sent to Trinity Episcopal Church, P.O. Box 1270, Oroville, WA 98844, or the American Diabetes Association.
