Obituary for Haskell M. Scalf

Haskell M. Scalf, age 80, a longtime resident of Altus, Oklahoma, passed away Saturday, March 16, 2019 at Jackson County Memorial Hospital in Altus.

Haskell was born in Matoy, Oklahoma the fifth of ten children on August 17, 1938 to his parents Harvey Metz Scalf and Clara Bell (Peek) Scalf. At an early age the family moved to the Altus Elmer area of Oklahoma where Haskell was raised. He attended school at South Side in Elmer. On February 18, 1958 Haskell married the love of his life Rebecca Evaline Payne in Elmer, Oklahoma and they have enjoyed over 61 years of marriage together. As a young couple they settled in Elmer and later moved to Altus where Haskell has resided for many years. In his early life he worked at the Cotton Growers Gin in Altus and later worked for Marks Lumber Company in Altus for over twenty years before retiring. Haskell was a longtime deacon at the Trinity Baptist Church in Altus and for the last several years Haskell had been attending the First Baptist Church in Altus. In his spare time he enjoyed fishing and wood working and he was known by many for his homemade vanilla ice cream. But more than anything Haskell loved his family and enjoyed family reunions and get-togethers and he always treasured the time spend with his grandchildren.
