      DECEASED WAS PROMINENT BIG HORN RESIDENT
      Note Left For Members of Family Says Ill Health Cause
      ROSS ORR SACKETT, 54, a prominent resident of Big Horn, where he was born and where he had spent almost his entire life, killed himself early Sunday morning by shooting himself in the head with a .410 calibre shotgun, the sheriff's office here said today.
      In a note which he left for members of his family, Sackett said that ill health was prompting him to take his own life.
      The note was found Sunday morning by the man's son, Jack, when he awoke. His father was not in the house, and so the son went to the Roy Sackett home nearby where he notified officers in Sheridan.
      Sackett's body was found by the authorities shortly before 10 a.m. in the yard in back of the house. It was not known how long he had been dead when the discovery was made and no one apparently heard the shot, they said.
      No inquest will be held in the shooting.
      Sackett's brother, Hugh, had taken his own life also by shooting himself at his home in Buffalo only last winter.
      A private service, for members of the family, will be held Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock at the Champion Drawing Room, and interment will be in the cemetery at Big Horn.
      Ross Sackett was born June 11, 1886, at Big Horn, and had made his home there most of his life, with the exception of several years he spent in Midwest in the oil business. He owned considerable property in and around Big Horn at the time of his death.
      While in the oil business he built up an enviable record for safety.
      His immediate survivors include two daughters, Charline and Ellen Louise, both of Casper; a son, Jack Darwin Sacket, of Big Horn; two brothers, Clyde Early Sackett of Big Horn and Carl L. Sackett of Cheyenne and Sheridan; and a sister, Mrs. Sula Gatchell of Buffalo.
      Other survivors include a number of nieces and nephews.
