My heart goes out to Bridget, Bob, Catherine, Olivia, David’s mother and the whole family. With his passing, his family and the world lost a kind, compassionate, joyful and wonderful gentleman. Those of us who had the privilege of working with David on various projects over the years found him to be the consummate professional with a brilliant mind, sound logic and good common sense. He was a man who treated everyone with dignity and respect, and he will be greatly missed. Rest in peace, David!

I had the honor to work with David's daughter Katharine this summer at Cargill. After reading all of his accomplihments, it is no wonder why Katharine is so driven and works to expand her knowledge in all areas. I am praying for Katharine and the family that they will all find strength in this great time of need.

We were so pleased to welcome David into our family when he married my sister, Bridget. I used to visit David and Bridget whilst they lived in Prague and Warsaw and he was always so helpful, kind and generous. We were lucky enough to have the opportunity to spend more time with him when they lived in Shropshire, England. It was a very special time in our lives when our children were small and growing up together. David was a wonderful husband to Bridget, father to Robert, Katharine and Olivia and son-in-law to Joan. He will be dearly missed by me, my family and that of my sister, Louise and our mother, Joan.

"I didn't get to spend a lot of time with David but the time I did spend was always terrific. He was a big music fan and just a sweet man. I too will miss him. R.I.P. David."
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

We give thanks to the precious time we enjoyed with David as a family, in Shropshire, England, in those earlier years.We were so pleased to see Robert this year and it is clear he has inherited David's sense of humor and infectious laugh.
We have always respected David's work ethic and we have been inspired by the encouragement he has given his children to succeed in life.
David's dedication to my sister, Bridget, and their wonderful children has always been a great comfort to us being so far away in England.We thank him for the happiness he brought them and he will be greatly missed.

During my time as the President and CEO of Goodwill Industries I came to know David the leader and David the man. His wisdom, kindness, perception, insights and genuine sense of humor were absolutely engaging. I loved his hearty laugh and relied on him during times of confusion and need.
David and Bridget gave me the opportunity to spend time with Catherine and Robert. During the time we shared it became clear that the Hackney family was one filled with love and healthy ambition.
Spending time with David and Bridget enjoying music and sharing a meal was always a pure joy.
I will miss David but will always remember his good counsel and hearty laugh that would fill the room with bliss. Till we meet again, affectionately, Bob
Mark and Sally Follett left a message on August 24, 2019:
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

This was David

Always and thank you David
