I can truthfully say that my big brother, Ben Hacker, was the very best. He was extraordinary and unique in ways that others wish they could be. His light still burns brightly, and always will for those who recognize that that light is still a solid and comforting force for those who have sense enough to see and follow. I will always miss him, and love him, and honor him. I am so proud to have been allowed to be his only sister.

Thank you Lord for my Dad. What a neat spirit he has. Yes, I do miss him! Peace Be Still and Glory to God in the Highest. May we who are left step up to live life more abundantly. Anne Frances Patterson ("Annie" Hacker, daughter)

With deepest sympathy. One only had to meet Admiral Hacker once to recognize that he was a gentleman to be admired and trusted.

Benjamin Hacker was a giant of a servant to his country and his family. The measure of his impact can be determined by the success of those whom he touched. His presence alone inspired many he did not know. His inspiration continues. I am honored to have known him.

Rear Admiral Benjamin T. Hacker (Ben, as I called him), was one of the most humble men I ever met. I met him and Jean through their cousin and my dear friend, Elizabeth Hicks, while they were stationed in San Diego, CA. I was pastoring Mt. Sinai Baptist Church at the time. Ben and Jean consideredd Mt. Sinai their "home church" while residing their. I was blessed to spend an afternoon with Ben and Jean about three years ago while attending the Hampton University Ministers' Conference. I shall hold on to fond memories of some wonderful times spent together.
"And I heard a voice from heaven saying, 'Write this down: Blessed are those who die in the Lord from now on. Yes, says the Spirit, they are blessed indeed, for they will rest from all their toils and trials; for their good deeds follow them!'" As the Bible records Jesus having done, so, too, did Ben go about doing good, and now he's resting from his labor.

Ben was a man of many "firsts"but most importantly he was my first cousin.He was always cheerful, thoughtful, courteous and
kind.

He was my cousin. His mom was the sister of my grandfather. However, I've called him 'Uncle' Ben since I was a child. I didn't realize or recognize how powerful a figure Uncle Ben was until I was in my adult years. All that I knew as a kid was that it was always great fun to visit his house. He had a booming voice and he was always smiling. He had a tremendous sense of love for his family. In fact, he took to hosting the Hacker-Crockett family reunions in the past decade or so. He raised three outstanding children....my cousins Ben, Bruce and Annie. Uncle Ben was the type of person that you never thought would leave us. As we celebrate his passage to the other side...we should also reflect on others in our family. Uncle Ben was a testament to the importance of family.

My SENIOR cousin, Ben, was one of the most likeable persons I have ever known. He met no strangers. And hospitality was just a natural part of him. His sense of humor, his wit were second to none. Ben was one about whom it could be said, "the same yesterday, today"...and I'm sure 'tomorrow'. I know when I see him in heaven, we will continue our running who - was - born - first "discussion". You watch! I will miss him. He will truly be a treasure stored up in heaven!!! And can't you imagine the pride with which Meme, Granddaddy and Uncle LeRoy have welcomed him. Hmmm, talk about "Well done..."!

Ben Hacker,a courageous and loving man, embraced life and lived each day appreciating the gift of life. He consistently did much more than what was required or expected of him in his career and personal life. We will treasure memories of him--the unconditional love and devotion to his family and his focus on the priceless value of friendship. We will always love Uncle Ben.

When I describe my cousin Ben to friends, they regard me with patient tolerance. I'm sure they think I exaggerate: Ben Hacker was the most gracious, best groomed, kindest man I've ever known. His manners were impeccable. He had a smile for everyone; he gave his full attention to each person who addressed him. Ben left you feeling good about yourself and fortunate to have known him. A beautiful man!!
