LINCOLN – Robert Merrill Haskell, 87, passed away peacefully May 14, 2019 at Cummings Health Care with family by his side. He was born November 1, 1931 in Bangor, Maine, the son of Bernard Noyes and Ernestine Leola (Merrill) Haskell.
Robert grew up in Lincoln and was a graduate of Mattanawcook Academy and served in the Maine National Guard 1956-57. He married first Charlotte Gordon with whom he had three children. Later he married Grace Pond.
Robert lived in Lincoln Center just over the hill from Haskell Lumber Company where he first worked for his grandfather George E. and then his uncle George A. and dad Bernard. After years of harvesting wood by horse, working at various positions within Haskell Lumber by his cousin Frederick’s side, he became the sawyer and log purchaser and eventually co-owned Haskell Lumber with Frederick and brother-in-law Jay McFalls until his retirement in 2008.
When not working he enjoyed hanging out at the Lincoln Center Garage with his fishing and hunting buddies, gardening, camping in Jonesport or Baxter Park, and feeding neighborhood stray cats and wild critters.
In retirement he fulfilled his dream to travel further, spending months at a time photographing his way across the western US and up into Alaska, first with Grace, later with his son Joey, and then with son-in-law Bill. Sandy Stream Pond, Jasper, Hyder, and Denali were particularly special to him. He found himself chased a few times by upset Momma Grizzlies and bugeling Elk! And there wasn’t a dog he couldn’t outbark. In his later years he enjoyed visits from special friends Phil Oliver and Robin Fegazzi.
Robert will be missed by his wife Grace and her three children, as well as his three children, Beth Eyles and her husband Bill of Chester, Julie Fleming and her husband Leonard of Woodville, and Joey and his wife Kellie (Ham) of Lincoln; seven grandchildren, Akaila (Eyles) Scorza, Alicia (Eyles) Hopkins , Amanda (Eyles) Willette, Heidi (McCarthy) Lee, Jared McCarthy, Matthew Haskell, and Evan Haskell; six great grandchildren Camden and Ainsley Scorza, Mason and Emerson Hopkins, Kooper and Beckett McCarthy; sister, Sandra Dodson; and several nieces and nephews. He was recently predeceased by his sister Mary Lou McFalls.
Per his wishes, there will be no visiting hours or graveside service but will travel one last time to Sandy Stream and Denali with family before being put to rest with family at the Lincoln Cemetery.
