Haughn, Willard Aubrey - Age 98 of Bridgewater, passed away January 13, 2023, in South Shore Regional Hospital, Bridgewater.

Willard grew up in Pleasantville and when he married, he moved to Conquerall Bank where he became a member of the fire department and in later years was made an honorary member. He worked as an auto mechanic all his working life and after he retired from Fairway Chev Olds, he dedicated his time to looking after his wife until her passing. When he could no longer stay in his home, he moved to Pineview Apartments where he met and made many new friends, who were like family. This was especially true during Covid when visits were limited. His favourite TV show was "Last of the Summer Wine", and you could hear his laugh all the way down the hall.
