Mr. Hacker was undoubtedly, one of the finest men I have ever met. He and Mrs Hacker were regulars when I worked at Kroger on 15th and Madison. The man always had something positive to say. The world could use more people like him. He will be missed!

A real gentleman. I knew him for over 50 years and never heard him say or do an unkind thing. I regret that I was unable to attend the funeral at St. Bens., yesterday. May the angels welcome him to God, most high, give him eternal rest and may light unending shine upon him. May the Lord bless and give strength to Joanne, Ed and other members of Knutes family.

I am so sorry to hear about Uncle Knute. If I had known my wife and I would have been there at the visitation and maybe even the mass. Prayers for Aunt Joann and Eddie.
