Death of Association member Rear Admiral Albert M Sackett

Sackett Family Association member Albert M Sackett has died at the age of 95. Albert was an occasional contributor to the Sackett mailing list and kept in touch with individual members. At the time of my last correspondence with him early last year, he was still playing golf aged 94.

Rear Admiral Albert Monroe Sackett served in the US Navy for 40 years. During his career he fought in three wars: World War II, Korea, and Vietnam.

His genealogical sketch in Notable Sacketts on the Sackett Family Association website includes a detailed obituary—compiled no doubt with meticulous accuracy as Albert wrote it himself!

  1. I knew Adm Sackett at NAS Memphis in the early 70s. I found him to be one if the first Naval officer I was ever associated while in the Navy. He was also just a very honest and caring person. I am saddened by his passing. He did so much for me
