David William Hacking, age 72, passed away on Dec. 2, 2019 at South Lincoln Medical Center in Kemmerer; with his wife, Cathy, at his side.
David was born on Oct. 21, 1947, and raised in Deep Creek, Utah. By his parents, John Arden and Caarma Hacking. David truly enjoyed going fishing and hunting with his family and his wife’s family as often as he could. Even as a child, he would go fishing with his cousins when they came to Vernal to visit. He and Cathy collected antiques and were looking forward to opening an antique shop in the spring when he would retire. David was employed in the oil field business all of his adult life and he was very proud of the hard work he did.
He traveled the world in his younger years with work and settled in the U.S. in his later years to be close to family and have a place to call home in Kemmerer and have an opportunity to hunt and fish all the time, of course. We will miss all of his stories, advice and sarcastic wit.
David was preceded in death by his mother, Carma Nielson Hacking, and his father, John Arden Hacking. David is survived by his wife, Cathy Johnstun, his brothers John Barry Hacking (Jensine), Clay N. Hacking (Denise), and Bill Young (Malene); his sisters Scarlett Frost (Cary), Melanie Harrington, and Leslie Maxwell (Doug).
He will be dearly missed by his surviving children, James Earl Hacking, Scott Wayne Hacking, Loran Morrison (Alyssa), Rebekah Morrison (Doug), and many nieces, nephews, and grandchildren.
Visitation was held Friday, Dec. 6, from at Ball Family Chapel in Kemmerer. Funeral services were held on Saturday, Dec. 7, at Ball Family Chapel, Kemmerer. Interment followed services at the South Lincoln Cemetery.
