RETIRED CITY MERCHANT DIES, Stroke Is Fatal To Haskell Crumb, 86, Ex-Lumber Dealer

Crumb and Sons, was taken over by Haskel and Ward Crumb following the death of their father. The company furnished lumber for a number of factories and buildings in the southeast and industrial area until it was sold about 30 years ago, when Haskell Crumb retired. He was a member of Second Congregational church, and at one time served as a deacon of the church.
