Roger A. Sackett Memorial Foundation

Established 2017

The Roger A. Sackett Memorial Foundation was created to celebrate the life and memory of Roger Sackett.  Roger was born on November 15, 1935, in Marshalltown, Iowa to Clarence and Grace Sackett.  He attended Cornell College in Mt. Vernon, Iowa and upon his graduation began his 40-year career in sales.  Roger was a member of the choir at Grace United Methodist Church in Naperville and later at Sycamore United Methodist Church.

Roger was married to Marianne for 61 years and was a beloved father to three children, proud grandfather to 21 grandchildren and 26 great-grandchildren.

One of Roger’s greatest pleasures was fishing on his boat in Canada.  Roger cherished most the moments he spent with Marianne, his children, and grandchildren.  His infectious smile, laugh, and joyful heart will be dearly missed.  Roger passed away peacefully on December 22, 2017, at the age of 82 with loved ones by his side.

Your gift in memory of Roger A. Sackett will go to support causes dear to his heart including support for his church, and medical research for Multiple Sclerosis and cancer.
