Sorry to hear of Professor Hackett's passing. When I was a grad sudent at UM's Center for Japanese Studies in 1966 Professor Hackett was a favorite teacher. His classes were always interesting and informative. And he played a mean game of tennis. Condolences.

I was very sorry to hear the sad news. Roger was a wonderful man. I cherish the memories of our fiercely fought tennis games and his joyous rendering of the marine hymn after victorious matches.
My deepest sympathy to the family.

Dear Hackett Family:

Please accept my sincere condolences on your loss. Professor Hackett was a graduate of the US Navy Japanese/Oriental Language school at the University of Colorado during World War II. For the past 17 years, I have been directing the US Navy Japanese/Oriental Language School Archival project at the University of Colorado Boulder. The project was in contact with Professor Hackett since its inception in 2000. The project has provided me the unique privilege and pleasure to honor a portion of the WWII Generation. I have been able to contact, correspond with, and sometimes meet many hundreds of these veterans. I have found them to be, by turns: distinguished, fascinating, wise, wry, accomplished, crusty, and humorous. It has been a process I have enjoyed immensely. The only drawback to the project has been the sad duty of writing such messages as this one. Again, please accept my deepest sympathies.
