Harold F."Larry" Haskin

October 24, 1936 — May 31, 2016

Harold F. “Larry” Haskin, 79, of Frankfort, KS, died May 31, 2016 at Stormont-Vail Hospital in Topeka after a long-term illness. He was born October 24, 1936 in Frankfort to Marshall M. and Hazel A. (Myers) Haskin. In 1954, he graduated from Frankfort High School and then served in the U.S. Army from 1955-57. He then worked for the Union Pacific Railroad and the State of Kansas as a grain inspector before starting his long-term career in the farm implement business as machinery salesman and parts management for John Deere equipment. He worked for Thompson Implement in Frankfort; Dummermuth Implement in both Frankfort and Marysville; and retired in 1999. Larry worked with a wide customer base that spanned several states and could probably still tell you what piece of equipment he sold to which customer even in retirement. Larry’s service to the community included the Marysville Community Memorial Hospital Board of Directors and was a board member of the Frankfort Care Home. He was also a founding member of the Frankfort FFA Chapter. On November 29, 1958, he was united in marriage to Delores K. “Kay” Ewing in Frankfort. He was preceded in death by his parents. Survivors include his wife Kay, Frankfort; daughters, Cynthia “Cindy” Omaha, NE, and Catherine “Cathy” (Kevin) Minihan, Blaine, KS; three grandsons—Chase Minihan, Chase’s fiancé Taylor Harms, Kasey Minihan, all of Manhattan, KS; and Cameron Minihan, Blaine.
