Retired Engineer Helps Build Louisville Homes for Habitat for Humanity

Here's the kind of story that's always welcome. Eighty-two-year-old Middletown resident Bob Haswell recently received a 2010 WLKY Bell Award for community service. Since 1991, when he retired as a mechanical engineer at Smurfit-Stone Container Corp. on Westport Road, Haswell has been helping the local chapter of Habitat for Humanity build homes. He has driven nails, framed windows and doors, laid flooring and invested his time in more than 200 of the Habitat homes built in the area since 1991. "You can really see you did something at the end of the day," he said. Haswell is one of 4,000 local volunteers who spend Fridays and Saturdays building houses for low-income families who also must help build their homes before they can move in. Despite his considerable accomplishments for Habitat for Humanity and other local charitable organizations, Haswell avoids the spotlight and prefers to go about the business of helping people. We salute Bob and wish him many more years of good health and success building Louisville homes for grateful area families.
