He is survived by a loving wife, Danelle Hackett; four sons, Nick (Brandy) Hackett, Arthur and Drew Hackett, and Blake (Jessica) Hackett; two grandchildren, Sabrina and Jarrahmiya Hackett; and two new arrivals to the family that were able to attend pappy’s funeral at the cemetery, Clay and Zoey Hackett; eight brothers and sisters; and a very special grandmother-in-law, Betty Lemasters.
Maj. Hackett’s disinterment was held late last week at the Valley View Cemetery in Torrington. He then traveled home escorted by the West Virginia and Pennsylvania Patriot Guard and local police and fire departments with a hero’s welcome into Follansbee, W.Va., to be held under the care of the James Funeral Home in Follansbee.
Maj. Hackett was then escorted again to his final resting place at the National Cemetery of the Alleghenies. Once at the cemetery a military graveside service was held by the retired military chaplain Rev. Andrew Tibus with full military honors by the U.S. Marine Corps and the U.S. Veteran Marines.
