Stu "Legend" Alan Haskell

October 17, 1949October 18, 2020

Our beloved Stu died on Sunday, October 18th, the morning after his 71st birthday. He was the longtime Market President of iHeart Media Northern Colorado and Southern Wyoming.

Stu leaves behind his wife Cindy, sons Matt and wife Riley, Sky and wife Loni, seven grandchildren; Brintley, Beckett, Maverick, Bex, Mason, Hayden, and Tori, sister and brother-in-law Julie and Jeff Gade of Lincoln, Nebraska, their son Cole, brother-in-law Dan DeVaughn and his family; Alex, Savannah, Kelcy and his mother-in-law Sally Schmitt of Hastings, Nebraska. He also leaves behind his radio family who he loved as well.

Stu loved the Nebraska Cornhuskers, Gunsmoke and his Skookums but most of all, he loved his family! So proud of his boys! I would be remiss if I didn’t say how much he cared about his clients, his listeners and the community in general.

Any Contributions in Stu’s memory may be made to St. Jude’s.

Celebration of Life arrangements pending.

Dear Cindy and family,
My memories go back many years when I had retail stores and advertised on the radio. I met Stu and although I was a young businesswoman he treated me with kindness and respect, not to mention always with a touch of humor. As the years passed and I was an advertising competitor (with Style) he was still the nicest and most caring friend. As our paths crossed with my non-profit, Hope Lives, he was genuinely interested in helping me. He was truly a wonderful human being and we are all richer for knowing him.
My deep sorrow for your loss. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him.

I was fortunate enough to work for Stu from '99 to '03 at Clear Channel Radio in Fort Collins. The respect of all who worked for him was very clear. Fond memories of the social gatherings we got to go to a few times, at the Stanley Hotel, as a group from work. Stu had a great sense of humor, was tough when he had to. Stu was an "ICON" in the radio world. Very sad he's gone, BUT all the memories live on. Prayers to the family. RIP Stu.

My heart goes out to you Cindy, Matt & Sky and the families! Reading all these tributes just reinforces how beloved Stu is. He will be missed.
I started at KTCL (KIIXFM) as a DJ in 1974 (through 1983), my first radio job, and Stu was over at KIIXAM, and then he (of course) rose through the ranks. I worked in radio for 21 years then on to the County for the next 21...and still volunteer (since 2003) at KRFCFM here in the Fort. It was a great pleasure working with Stu in those early years. Every time I saw Stu over the subsequent years he was so supportive whatever I was doing, that big smile and kindness. It is wonderful to read all these tributes!

I worked at 600 KIIX back in the early 80's. At that time, Stu Haskell was in charge of KTCL, our sister station. Stu was one of the kindest people I ever knew in radio. To his wife, Cindy, I send you my Deepest Sympathy on the loss of your remarkable husband. Stu Haskell was "Fort Collins Radio.'

KTCL was my first on-air professional radio job after I moved to Colorado from Michigan in 1993. I did weekend overnights for a few years and the pay, well, you know, it was radio, so it didn't pay the greatest. Sometimes there would be a little something extra in my station mailbox, from Stu. An envelope with a $50 bill for example. I would still run into him at events around northern Colorado over the past few years and he would always say how good of a deejay I was, all these years later. Just the sweetest, kindest man who will be missed by so many. The example he set for others is beyond compare. My thoughts go out to his family and friends. Godspeed, my friend.

Dear Haskell Family,

I was so sorry to hear of your husband and dad's death. Matt, I had you in my class at Beattie umpteen years ago - first grade if I am not mistaken. Do you remember me, Mrs. Hartman?

My heart is heavy for you all,

We were so sad to hear of Stu's passing. We first met him back when he did advertising for Hickory House South. Then I had the privelage of knowing him through work with the Boys & Girls Clubs. He was such a nice man and had a smile that lit up a room.

Our hearts go out to you & your family. Please let us know if you need anything.

With Love & Hugs,
Tammy & Chris Chandler
