Dennis Kay "Butch" Haskett, 72, of Noblesville, passed away on Friday, May 31, 2019 at Prairie Lakes Health Campus in Noblesville after a brave battle with cancer. He was born on January 19, 1947 to the late Raymond and Margaret (McAvoy) Haskett in Noblesville, Indiana.
After completing a metalworking apprenticeship, Dennis joined the Peace Corps and served as a teacher in Tehran, Iran from 1969-1972 at a time when that country still enjoyed peace and prosperity. He then moved to Munich, Germany and worked for Siemens where he met his wife and had a daughter who was born there. The family returned to Hamilton county where he started Vibcon Corporation in Arcadia and worked until he sold it and retired in 2009. Dennis was an avid collector of Civil War tokens, and enjoyed giving talks on the subjects to various groups. He loved to travel and visited more than 40 countries.
Dennis is survived by his daughter, Christa (Thomas) Emodi; 2 grandchildren, Jack Emodi and Alice Emodi; and his sister, Kathie (John David) Tilton.
