Michael E. Haskell

Michael E. Haskell 63, passed away on April 8, 2021 after a short illness. He was born in Schenectady, NY on December 20, 1957.

Mike worked for Curtis Lumber Company for many years and then went on to work at Ball Metal Container where he worked for over 30 years. After retiring, he went back to Curtis Lumber and worked part time.

Mike enjoyed the simple things in life like a good dinner or a backyard picnic. He loved his trips to Florida to visit his brother and family each year. Mike had an awesome sense of humor and he would constantly crack his family and friends up.

He was the most giving and loving man who would do anything for anyone. Mike’s two daughters and granddaughters as well as all his family, including his beloved dog Dak, have always been what was most important to him and will remain so as we all know he is watching over us.

Mike was a true good friend to all of his friends. He cherished all his friendships, of which he had many. He loved the sunshine and sitting out on his deck in the home he loved. Mike was a big time loyal Dallas Cowboy fan and loved golf outings with his buddies. He totally loved and enjoyed the times spent at the Saratoga Rack Track with all his family and friends and looked forward to racing season like no other.

Nothing will be the same without him here, but we know he is now our guardian angel and he is with our Dad.

He was predeceased by his father Albert Haskell. Mike is survived by his daughters Ashlee Haskell and Erica Haskell (Kyle Senecal); granddaughters Vivianna and Everly; mother Mary Mercier; siblings Sherry Sutton (Jay), Kim Higley (Rob), Patrick Haskell (Deb), Stephen Haskell (Tammy), and Scott Haskell (Fran); aunt Joan Moore (Buck); many cherished nieces, nephews, and beloved cousins.

Relatives and friends are invited to calling hours on Friday, April 16 from 4pm to 7pm at Armer Funeral Home, Inc., 39 East High Street, Ballston Spa. Social distancing and facemasks are required.

A celebration of Mike’s life will be held on Saturday, April 17 from 2pm to 5pm at Dozer’s Bar and Grill, 411 Geyser Road, Ballston Spa.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to St Jude Children’s Research Hospital, 501 St Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105.

I did not know Mike well until he came to the mountains for his niece’s wedding. We all had such a great time dancing & singing & talking football! He was truly a lovely man & I don’t think I ever saw him without a smile. I know how much Steve & his other siblings loved him. I feel so badly for his daughters & his mother, Noreen, & the rest of this family. As you grieve the loss, remember all the great memories. Death cannot rob you of the pictures painted with the brush of happiness. God bless you all!

Carol Elwell

I'll always cherish the fun times we all had together on Hannum Street -- bike riding, playing tag, splashing in the rain, playing baseball behind his childhood home. I could go on and on. I am sure there are so many more memories beyond our childhood that Mike's family will hold dear. He will be sorely missed by all.

Michael Bush

Our sincere condolences to all of the Haskell Family and Mike’s many friends. I fondly recall his love of sports and the friendly competitions and rivalries we had throughout the years of our youth. From the hundreds of pick-up basketball games and street football, to the years we played together as teammates and rivals in the Abner’s softball league. Mike was a great teammate, competitor, and person who demonstrated true sportsmanship and friendship...just an all-around “good guy”. RIP pal.

Jim Wendy and family
