      Robert G. "Bob"Sackett
      June 29, 1920 - July 11, 2008

      Bob was born to Louise M. and Walter O. Sackett in Dodge County, MN. He grew up on his grandfather's farm after his father died when he was five. Bob served in the Coast Guard in WWII, and returned to the farm after the War. Because of his wife's health, they moved to Wyoming in 1952. He attended the University of Wyoming while working, and graduated with honor. Bob became professor in Agriculture, and Director of Wyoming Crop Improvement. In 1969 he accepted a similar position, Exec. Director of Arizona Crop Improvement, and Associate Agronomist at the University of Arizona.

      Bob retired in 1987 to enjoy woodworking, travel, children, grandchildren, and friends. He served as International President of Association of Official Seed Certifying Agencies as well as other professional organizations. He was an active member of Christ Church, United Methodist for 39 years.

      Bob is survived by his beloved wife of 64 years, Emily, and children, Carol (Dan) Swango, Richard (Susan) Sackett, Connie (Kris) Kiefer, grandchildren, Rodney (Sally), Matthew, Nicholas, Tyson and Richard, great-granddaughter Janae, step-grandsons, Jeffrey and Michael, brothers William and Herbert. He was predeceased by brother, Harley.

      A special thanks to the staff of Peppi's House Hospice for their outstanding care and support. Memorials may be made to Christ Church, United Methodist, Peppi's House or a charity of your choice in Bob's honor. Visitation will be held at East Lawn, 5801 E.
