      Fred Sackett Jr.

      Fred Sackett, Jr. died on Sunday, June 22, 1997, at his home in Austin after a brief bout with lung cancer. He was 75.

      Fred was fond of reminiscing about his British immigrant grandfather, Henry Sackett, who arrived on horseback in Coleman County in time to join the Texas Ranger garrison at Camp Colorado, Texas, in their last fight against Indian marauders. After the land was secured, Henry Sackett bought the fort's headquarters building, married the commandant's daughter, Mary McNamara, and settled down to build a sizeable ranch and rear eleven children, the second of whom was Fred Sackett, Sr. Fred Jr. was born on his grandfather's ranch and grew up in what he considered idyllic circumstances. He always said that it was while lying on his back in the tall grass of the pasture, watching hawks circling gracefully in the air, that he deter1 mined to become a flyer.

      He took flying lessons at an early age and made air acrobatics his hobby to such an extent that he was spotted by Air Corps brass in the days just before World War II. He was asked to instruct flying cadets and later transferred to the Ferry Command, graduating then to service as a pilot in the China-Burma-India Theatre - "Flying the Hump", as it was called. He completed in excess of forty missions.

      After the war he returend (sic) to Austin to resume his studies at the University of Texas, graduating with a degree in higher mathematics. While in university he supported himself and his wife, Dell, and small son by going to work for a construction firm, work he found so congenial and profitable that he continued it for many years. But in 1966, the death of his second son, Eric Sackett, in Vietnam, so embittered and saddened him that he decided on a new approach to living. Invited to join an investment firm, Rauscher-Pierce, he went back to school to learn a new business, and made investments his career until his retirement in 1986. He often billed himself as the only liberal stockbroker in Texas.

      A lifelong Democrat, Fred, from his youth onward, had been a champion of minority groups, and was proud of recalling an early triumph when he and a group of his high school friends shamed his school district into admitting black students to the local high school.

      A dedicated preservationist, Fred served on the board of the Austin Heritage Society for many years. Appointed to the Austin Library Commission, he served as its President for seven years, leading the Commission in its successful fight to add a fourth floor to the new Main Library, which planners had envisioned as a three-story building.

      He is survived by his wife of 33 years, Peggy Sackett; his mother, Fay Moneyhun Sackett of Coleman; his son, Fritz Sackett of Austin; his sister, Patsy Hill of Coleman; his niece, Tamara Mills; and his nephew John Allen Crockett, both of Coleman.

      Funeral arrangements are being made by Weed-Corley-Fish, and services will be at the Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, June 26, 1997.

      Pallbearers will be Paul Brown, Ronnie Earle, Harold G. Robinson, Felder Thornhill, Bruce Todd and George Warren. Honorary pallbearers are Gonzalo Barrientos, Philip Bobbitt, Michael Frary, Johnny Huber, Martin Kermacy, Mayo King, Garry Mauro, Scott McBride, Carl Oppenheimer, George Seagert, A.R. "Babe" Schwartz, Will Todd IV and John Tubb.

      In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Friends of the Austin Public Library, P.O. Box 2287, Austin, Texas 78768. Arrangements by Weed Corley-Fish Funeral Home, 3125 N. Lamar, 452-8811.
