CARTHAGE – Graveside services for the lovely couple of 56 years- Robert A. & Bonnie L. Haskins Graveside Services with burial will take place on Saturday, May 14, 2022, at 10:00 am in Hillside Cemetery, Champion, NY. CARTHAGE – Robert A. “Bob” Haskins, 85, passed away peacefully early Saturday morning, February 26th at the Hospice House of Jefferson County in Watertown, New York. Robert was born on August 6, 1936 in West Carthage, the loving son of the late Norman & Ethel (Simes) Haskins. He graduated in 1954 from West Carthage High School. He served proudly and honorably in the United States Air Force from 1954 until 1958. He married Bonnie Monahan on July 31, 1965 at the St. James Catholic Church. They raised their family and lived their whole lives in Carthage. He was employed for many years as a store clerk for the A&P store, retiring in 1993 after 35 years of dedicated service to his community. He was very proud and fond of his hometown and had many stories of the old days. Robert truly loved his family very much and shared the same interests as his beloved wife Bonnie. The only difference being was if he lost a bet, you better get your money quickly, for he was known to have more moss than money in his wallet. An example of this is when he “conveniently” forgot his wallet on vacation. This is a trait that he passed onto his grandson, Robert. He will be truly missed by all who knew him. He loved the Adirondack Mountains, and took his family there yearly. He climbed many of the mountains, and climbed his last one, Blue Mountain, at the age of 75. Robert was a devoted Catholic and enjoyed being an usher and attending church every Sunday. He was known throughout the town for his many long walks. He was an avid Dodgers fan since boyhood. Robert is survived by a son, David Michael and his wife Martha Haskins and a daughter, Susan Elaine and her husband Phillip McHatton, all of Carthage; a brother-in-law, Jack Monahan of Rochester; a sister-in-law, Jane Wyss of Wisconsin; six grandchildren, six great-grandchildren, and several special nieces and nephews. He is predeceased by his parents, his loving wife Bonnie of over 56 years who died on February 19, 2022, and a sister, Phyllis G. Hutchins. Calling hours will be held on Tuesday, March 1st from 9:30 AM - 12:00 PM at the Lundy Funeral Home & Cremation Service, Inc., 500 State St., Carthage, followed by a Funeral Mass at 12:30 PM at St. James Catholic Church, Carthage.
