HACKETT, Francis Geoffrey … 'It pains me to admit it, but apparently, I have passed away. Everyone told me it would be due to a mis-adventure, but you know me, I can't follow any rules'.

Cherished father of Toby Sansom and her husband Richard of Camlachie, Shane (pre 2012) (Sheila Lampard of Brigden), Tracy Rogers and her husband Doug of Lambton Shores and Jennifer Hackett and her partner Murray Dietz of London. Much loved grandfather of Courtnee (Brad), Owen (Nicole), Jordon (Ashleigh), Nicholas (Alyssa) and Hayley and great grandfather of Isobel and Odie. Dear brother of Patricia Hackett (Pierre) and Pamela Payne (Bruce). Lovingly remembered by the Kerr family and missed by many nieces, nephews and friends.
