The Lockwoods' Fair Haven Love Affair

Ken Lockwood, 90, tells his story of life in Fair Haven and a bygone era

One of the oldest, last remaining bungalows in Fair Haven was demolished last week.

The house, in its original form at 39 Parker Avenue, was inhabited by the Lockwood family for 82 years, from 1930 until a few months ago. Before that, from 1924 to 1930, Ken Lockwood lived down the street at the corner of Parker and Cedar Avenues. He spent 88 years of his life in Fair Haven, from the time he was 2.

Right after unforseen circumstances forced Ken and Peggy Lockwood to move to an assisted living facility, Ken sat down with Patch on his 90th birthday to reflect on his time in Fair Haven, a certain celebrity he grew up with, and his deep love for the borough, his neighbors and the street where he lived in the home that Lockwoods built.

Take a look at the video above for a glimpse into a true Fair Haven love story.
