Haskell Morin

I just wanted to reprint the obit for Haskell from the PBPost. There were few people who did more for Century Village during his lifetime. He volunteered his time helping on many levels. The stretch of Haverhill Road on the CV side (named for Haskell Morin and Company) was a place he regularly picked up trash. Many of us remember his repainting the stripes on the crosswalks in CV. There are too few people like him here, and we will all miss him.

  1. For over 20 years in CV, I was acquainted with Haskell and thought the world of him. He was always active in many aspects of the Village and was instrumental in getting bus benches throughout the community for the comfort of the residents, in addition to maintaining the grounds outside the Village. How sorry I am to learn of his passing. My deepest condolences go out to his family.
