Frank Sackett was born June 19, 1868, in Bear Creek township and died at his home in Scott township, July 24, 1922, aged 54 years, 1 months and 5 days.

He was married to Mary Baird September 14, 1886. To this union two sons were born, John and Scott.

Mr. Sackett, or Frank, as he was most commonly called, spent his entire life in the vicinity of his late home. He did the road work in Scott township for nineteen years and many people will miss his cheery word. That he had acquired a large number of friends, was shown during his last illness at the hospital and at his home by the constant flow of visitors who came to see him and do, if possible, something to ease his intense sufferings. He was the most patient and uncomplaining of men and when hardly able to speak, he was always "alright," thinking only of the welfare of others. There never was a more accommodating neighbor, no word of criticism or unkindness fell from his lips, and a more indulgent husband and father could not be found. While this is comforting, it makes the loss seem doubly hard.

He leaves his loving wife, two sons, John and Scott, one little granddaughter, Verna, of whom he was especially fond, one brother, George, four sisters, of the latter only two, Mrs. James Patton and Mrs. Robert Baird, were present at the time of his death. Besides these, a host of friends and other relatives mourn his untimely passing.

Funeral services were held at the Methodist church Wednesday afternoon, July 26th, conducted by the Rev. E. W. F. Holler. Interment was made in the I.O.O.F. cemetery.
