Richard David Hackett passed away Sunday, July 14, 2019 at the age of 56 in Jacksonville, Florida.
Rick was born and raised in Jacksonville along with his two sisters. He was a great lover of animals, history and especially music. A huge fan of many 70’s rock bands, Rick learned to play the drums and guitar at an early age, and was a member of the Orange Park High School marching band. As an adult he became an excellent mechanic and was great at general repairs around the house. Most importantly, at the heart of Rick was a great love for his family.
He leaves behind his mother and father, Shirley and David Hackett, sisters Yvonne Wilson and Debbie Dell, two aunts and two uncles, six nieces and nephews, and too many cousins to count.
A Celebration of Life service will be held in Rick’s memory on Saturday, July 27, 2019 at 10:00 AM in the sanctuary of South Jacksonville Presbyterian Church.
Arrangements are with Evergreen Funeral Home & Crematory (904) 353-3649.
I have great memories of running around with Rick in his old Malibu or my old Chevy truck back in the day. We might have done some dumb things but he was a great guy and we had a lot of fun. Rest In Peace my friend.
