Charles A.Haskell, II

 

Charles A. Haskell II (b. May 2, 1937) of Englewood, Colorado, died peacefully on December 8, 2016, at the age of 79. Charles was the second eldest son of the late Charles and Irene Haskell. He attended Regis High School and after serving in the United States Marine Corps, returned to Denver and received his B.S.B.A. degree in Accounting from the University of Denver. After beginning his professional career as a CPA with Price Waterhouse in New York, he returned to his native Denver and took a position with the brokerage firm of Bosworth & Sullivan. This new career would span five decades of changes and mergers in the firm but never in his wavering of providing sound investment advice for his clients. He retired as vice president and investment officer of RBC Wealth Management in 2012.

Among Chuck’s outside interests were car racing and golf. He appreciated vintage cars having been the proud owner of a 1939 Ford and a 1947 Lincoln. He made pilgrimages to the “Indy 500” for many years, most recently with his son, Stephen, and grandson, Ryan. He was a close follower of the NASCAR standings.

Chuck was an avid golfer and a longtime member of Cherry Hills Country Club. He also loved Coronado Island in the San Diego area and in his later years he would spend the month of February there golfing and hosting his many visitors.

Chuck’s loyalty and generosity to family, friends and church were well known. He was always available for advice and a helping hand. His alma maters, Regis High School and the University of Denver, have also benefited from his generosity.

Immediate survivors include his children, Kate (Alan Regimbal) of Bellingham, WA, and Stephen (Stacy) of Littleton, his five grandchildren, Grant, Sophia, Gabriel, Elle and Ryan as well as siblings Roger (Maryann) of Scotia, NY, Russell (Sue) of Denver, Daniel (Marcy) of Englewood, Dana Patton of New York City and Jenean Jones of Silver Spring, MD. Also surviving is his former wife Sheila Dick Haskell of Littleton.

A Rosary will be held at St. Louis Catholic Church, 3310 S. Sherman St, Englewood CO 80113 on Thursday, Dec. 15 at 5 PM and Memorial Mass on Friday, Dec. 16 also at St. Louis Church at 2 PM followed by a reception at the University of Denver, in the Joy Burns Center, School of Hospitality.

  11. Chuck was a wonderful human being whom we enjoyed as a fine person and a good friend. Our deepest condolences to the entire Haskell family.

  12. I am sorry for your family's loss as Chuck was one of my first mentors after I graduated from CU. I was one of his assistants in the mutual fund department run by Chuck at what was then known as Bosworth, Sullivan & Co. During a time when the brokerage business was male dominant, Chuck supported my efforts to get registered in the securities business. He even arranged for me to join Toastmasters so that I could improve my speaking abilities. I will always remember Chuck whenever I see a gentleman sporting a bow tie – he was a true gentleman who loved his family and his golf game. He was a good man with a great deal of integrity and humor.

  13. I worked for Chuck as a temporary at Bosworth Sullivan and he and Sheila became friends of ours. He was so much fun to work for and I feel badly that I hadn't had contact with him
    The last couple years. Wish I had done so. My sympathy to all his family and friends who will miss his great personality, his bow ties and his kind heart. I know I will.
    Linda Hanson

  14. Chuck was a kind and sincere friend. Thru the years, I enjoyed playing many rounds of golf with him. His knowledge of the stock market was most impressive. Whenever I would have any financial question or comment, he would always launch into a detailed lengthy and informative explanation. He was a good man and I will miss him.
