My condolences to Sally, Steve, Liz and their families. I'll always appreciate that Fred gave me the opportunity to work for and learn from him. The world is a much less interesting place without him in it. RIP.

I fondly remember Mr. Hackett from my days of taking the minutes of the Board of Directors meetings at the Howard Bank. He was always very wise and thoughtful in his leadership. My kindest thoughts and wishes to his family.

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Fred Hackett at this time and extend my warm thoughts to his family members, who have contributed to positive memories of my now 33 years living in the Burlington area. My first job in Vermont in 1986 was working for the U. S. Biathlon Association for which Fred was a board member. I later and fortunately came to know several of his family members, who, given Fred's many successes, carry on his tradition!
