May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.
May we all wait patiently for the new world where there will be no more sickness, old age, and death.
Steve Thacker was a great Director when I worked with him in 1995. He always made me feel welcome in EPO. I will always remember his smile and kindness to me. We liked talking about basketball all the time. God be with your family at this time. It was great to know him. I will never forget him.
i am so sorry to hear about the lost of DR. THACKER, my prayer goes to all the family in this time of sorrow. john 5;21,28 ga
Im so sorry for your loss. May we wait for the new world to come, where there will be no more, sickness, old age, and death.
Dr. Thacker was a very good leader and was clearly a well-informed CDC historian. When I started at CDC, almost 12 years ago, I invited him to provide a brief history of CDC to new employees. He delivered an outstanding presentation and I was impressed and proud of him as a CDC leader. May God watch over his family as he receives his wings.
Steve was a friend, an incredibly broad and deep leader, a great thinker, and a passionate advocate for global health. He was a coach for my daughter in AAU basketball and was incredibly respected by everyone I knew. We will miss him. Our hearts go out to his family. Thank you Steve.
The Levin Family
My I encourage the family and friends of the deceased to rely on the God of all comfort. He is faithful and true. "In just a little while longer death will be no more."Revalations 21:4
As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends.
With deepest sympathy to the Thacker family during your time of grief...God is for you a refuge and strength, A help that is there to be found during difficult times...May God provide you with peace and comfort to endure the days ahead.
May the God who supplies all comfort support your family during this time of sorrow. We all await the coming promise when "no resident will say I am sick." Isaiah 33.24
Steve left a great impact. So many people at CDC were touched directly by him and so many others around the world were touched indirectly by his role in building up the field of public health.
I will always be grateful to Dr. Thacker for his guidance and support.
