David Russell "Dave" Hacker
Birth: Jul. 18, 1954
Saint Louis
St. Louis City
Missouri, USA
Death: May 9, 1976
Baltimore
Baltimore City
Maryland, USA

DAVID RUSSELL HACKER, died of Monomylisdic Leukemia at the age of twenty-one years, nine months and twenty-one days.

He was the son of Russell Hacker and his wife, Vivian Armistead Hacker. He was the grandson of Charles Richard Armistead & Emma Gerling Armistead and Elmer Frank Hacker & Edith Raines Hacker.

Two grandparents preceded him in death, Edith Raines Hacker in October 1972 and Charles R. Armistead in September 1973.

He was survived by his parents, two sisters, two brothers-in-law, and two nieces - Melanie & Stefanie, one nephew - Brian, and two grandparents - Emma (Gerling) Armistead & Elmer F. Hacker.

He was a graduate of Affton High School, played the trumpet in the school band, was a carpenter like his grandfather, and had a 'green' thumb when it came to gardening. He was very successful with a back-yard garden, and would have made a great farmer.

He spent two years going back and forth from the Baltimore, Maryland John's Hopkins Cancer Research Center and home when he was in remission. He underwent various experimental treatments helping doctors understand and try to cure this terrible disease.
Sadly, he met a wonderful girl working as a nurse in Baltimore named Martha, and of course their friendship & love was never meant to be for very long. (I still think of you Martha!)

He was a wonderful brother & friend, very good to his friends and family; he never really had a chance to live his life fully.

Missing you daily ~ Love, Karen Louise Walker
