      Robert Vance Sackett lived a life filled with love and happiness. He was born in Kingston, NY to Eula Jean Cook Sackett and George Robert Sackett and grew up in Jamesburg, NJ. Growing up he was an active Boy Scout and enjoyed playing baseball with the neighborhood kids. He attended Davis and Elkins College in Elkins, WV where he played soccer and received a BA in psychology. When he graduated in 1969, he was drafted and joined the U.S. Navy. He served as a corpsman and ran a psych unit at the Philadelphia Naval Hospital. After he got out of the Navy, he moved to Columbus, OH to join friends who lived there. He worked at The Ohio State University hospital in the physical med and rehab section. While there, he met his lifelong sweetheart, Ellen Hambrick. They married in 1976 and had two precious daughters, Leslie and Corrine, who have grown up to be wonderful women and have given him a lifetime of joy. He went to nursing school at Grant Hospital in Columbus and worked jobs in various settings including the ER, open heart recovery, cath lab, and home health. During his last few years with Baptist Home Health he was a wound and ostomy nurse. He loved being a nurse and helping people. He loved his coworkers at Baptist. He enjoyed traveling, hiking, walking, kayaking, being outside, listening to all kinds of music, going to concerts, and hanging with friends. Among activities he enjoyed with friends were brewing beer with Ken Stevens, golfing, including his annual golf trip with Bill Harris and other Jackson county buddies, keeping up with friends on Facebook, and his Bunco group. He attended Orange Park United Methodist Church (OPUMC) and was an active member of the Koinonia Sunday school class. He is survived by his loving wife Ellen, daughters Leslie (Adam) Lohse and Corrine Sackett (Greg Izard), three grandchildren Benjamin Lohse, Alethea Lohse, and Maddy Izard, sisters Judy Venable (Denny) and Pam Bradford (Dick), sisters-in-law Gail Steele (Mike), Paige Gottlieb (Don), and Denise Hambrick. He is also survived by Aunt Margaret, several nieces and nephews, cousins, and good friends. He was insightful, thoughtful, loving, and had a fantastic sense of humor. He loved his dogs, Bella and Rudy, and teasing and hanging out with the grandkids. He will be greatly missed. We would like to thank the doctors, nurses, and staff at Baptist Medical Center and at Haven Hospice for their kind and compassionate care. In lieu of flowers, donations in his memory are welcome at OPUMC Good Samaritan Ministry, Haven Hospice, or a charity of your choice.
      A service will be held at OPUMC on Monday, March 12th at noon.
