Duane "Hack" Hackworth, 65, Akron

Duane “Hack” Hackworth, 65, of Akron, passed away at 3:10 AM, Wednesday, January 29th, 2020 at his home.

  

On March 30, 1954, Duane was born in Kosciusko County.  He was a treasured son of  Oliver and Ora Lee Marsillett Hackworth. Growing up he shared his childhood with two sisters and a brother. Hack was a proud member of  the Akron High School class of 1972.

 

In the Akron United Methodist Church, Duane married his high school sweetheart  and best friend, Miss Janet L. Sheetz, on August 25,  1973. They have shared 46 years of life’s adventures.  From their union came a handsome son Marcus Duane.  Sadly at age 21, Marcus  passed away from injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident.

 

An iconic public servant,  # 9, Hack served the Henry Township  Fire Department as it's Chief for many years.  He currently was leading the group as Assistant Chief. Always there for his community in tough and challenging times whether it was a fire or rescue from a motor vehicle accident or farming  Hack was a quiet laid back leader who conveyed a calm demeanor.  He is the longest continuous servant in the group's history.

 

Reliable, consistent and dependable are some of the attributes, Mr. Hackworth possessed, with a sweet temperament as he climbed on board bus # 38 each morning to chauffeur his kids to  the Tippecanoe Valley Schools.  With a tender heart he was there for all of them, exhibiting a keen interest on hearing  about their  day as they shared their successes and  accomplishments.

 

Driving the same route for nearly four decades, Duane drove 6 families for two generations.  Maintaining excellent discipline and safety, if the bus became a little too noisy,  like sometimes happens, a shrill whistle would silence his riders, his method of reminding them it was time to quiet down.  He and Janet always saw to it that everyone that rode his bus had a treat bag before Christmas and  took them for treats to celebrate the end of each school year. Additionally, Duane owned a Mobil Oil distributorship from 1977 - 2000, delivering petroleum products to residents and businesses.

 

A man of strong faith, Duane was a member of the Olive Branch Church.  He led a small group Bible studies. Over the years he and Janet a dynamic team, conveyed their love, understanding and compassion by leading  many grief support groups for parents who  lost children.

 

In the early years, Duane, Marcus and Janet would head to Florida to enjoy the surf, sand and sun on spring break.  They loved the excitement and speed of snowmobiling.  Hack also shared his love for Harley's with Marcus, enjoying many rides together.  During the holidays they established a family tradition of seeking out the perfect Christmas tree,  cutting it down and decorating it to perfection.  Fishing was another sport they all enjoyed. 

 

Janet and Hack enjoyed fun and adventures making memories with their extended family the Mills Crew and Bowers.  It was a new tradition, Janet and Hack would prepare breakfast on Christmas morning with Hack overseeing the preparations  and cooking the Belgian Waffles, while Janet handled the trimmings.  The entire day was enjoyed watching sporting events, story telling  and playing games.  The Hackworths were always seated in the stands to cheer the kids on, attending dance recitals and concerts.   They all attended many Purdue University Women's basketball games. 

 

Thanksgiving 2019, the Hackworths traveled to Florida to watch Duane's niece play in the Gulf Coast Showcase at Estero, FL. featuring  the Purdue women.  Many memories were made as his sisters Becky and Barbara, were also there making it a great family event, while cheering wildly for the lady Boilermakers.   

 

The Hackworths were  members of the Blacktop Cruisers Car Club.  The summertime brought on an opportunity to enjoy many rides on his shiny fire engine red  Harley-Davidson Firefighter Special Edition.  Hack drove while Janet hung on tightly, both catching the warm breeze and freedom only a Harley ride can provide.

 

As a grill-master, Hack was known for his sizzling juicy hamburgers.  He used his mother-in-law's coleslaw recipe to duplicate the tasty salad to perfection.  Hack loved his role  Santa Claus entertaining family and friends,  making all of the kid's day during the holiday season.  For fun he loved walking the dogs, cruising around on the Ranger, watching NASCAR and baseball.  

 

Many will remember seeing Janet and Hack seated at Jarrety's tall table enjoying coffee each morning and sometimes at lunch.  They always sat with a variety of friends who engaged in solving the world's problems while catching up on the latest local news.  

 

 

Left to cherish  Hack's memory are his wife Janet, two sisters, Barbara Whitaker and husband James,  Becky Whitaker and husband Rick all of Warsaw; two canine companions, Zoie the Golden Retriever and Lucy the Golden Doodle;  special extended family, Mike and Ruby Bowers, Shannon and Chrissy Mills, Ryan Bowers and the Mills kids,  Kennedy, Payton and Sydney,  special cousin Larry Sheetz and Susan, the students who rode bus # 38, his Olive Branch Church  family, his fellow fire family and the many families he befriended during a rescue, a fire or even recipients of his many a simple random act of kindness.

 

Preceding Duane in death are his parents Oliver and Ora Hackworth, beloved son Marcus on July 17, 1997, brother Douglas Hackworth and his father and mother-in-law, Dale and Edith Sheetz.

 

A celebration of the life of Duane Hackworth will be at 11:00 AM on Saturday, February 1, 2020, in the Olive Branch Church, 4581 E. 1200 N, Roann, IN 46974.  Pastor Jeff Sumner will officiate.

Melvin Stamberger  93 of Rochester

Mr. Melvin E. Stamberger 93 of Rochester was surrounded by his loving family when he passed away at 1:33 AM, January 12, 2020, at Miller's Merry Manor in Warsaw.

 

On February 13, 1926, Melvin Edwin Stamberger was born in Bureau  County, Illinois.  He was a treasured son of Herman Oscar and Hilda Margaret Lamps Stamberger.  Growing up he shared his childhood with two brothers.

 

At the Clarion Evangelical Lutheran Church at LaMoille,IL, Melvin married the love of his life Miss Wilma Jean Horn, on August 18, 1957.  They enjoyed 62 years of life's adventures.  From their union came three wonderful children Kathy, Chuck and Steven.  The family tree continued to grow with the added blessings of two more generations including nine grandchildren and thirteen great-grandchildren.

 

In 1969, Melvin and Wilma moved their family from Mendota to Newcastle Township to set up their home and family farming operation.  They erected the windmill that graced the landscape of their  farm  in Illinois. Melvin was primarily  a grain farmer  annually planting wheat, corn and soybeans.  He also enjoyed overseeing the livestock operation consisting of cross-bred hogs,  black Angus and Hereford's.  He could be seen turning the soil, then planting annually each spring atop his classic J.I. Case shiny tractors. 

 

Melvin was an active member of the Calvary Lutheran Church in Plymouth.  He was an over 30 year member of the Hesston Steam Power Society in LaPorte County.  An avid train buff, Melvin built two locomotive steam powered engines on an 1.5 inch scale, powered by coal and water building the perfect steam engine.  As the patriarch of the Stamberger family, grandpa Melvin served as engineer and sometimes conductor.

 

Establishing a family tradition, Melvin and Wilma spent most summer weekends from Memorial Day to Labor Day  taking to the 7 inch train track and engineering their locomotive steam engine, allowing friends and new acquaintances the thrill of a historic ride.   Other family members joined in the fun serving as conductor or sold tickets at the depot.

 

The appointment of the annual "Corn Day," was led by Melvin.  Each spring he planted a special field of tender, juicy sweet corn, monitoring it until the kernels were blistered to perfection.  When he declared the corn was ready, his family was notified and the corn was harvested the evening before the "Big Day."  Everyone pitched in completing their assignment from shucking, overseeing the blanching in a huge black butcher kettle and cutting the corn from the ear.  Much love and many legendary stories were told during the days events. The Stamberger family collaborated to freeze over 400 pints for winter's use, enough for more than 10 families to enjoy!

Terri Charais Bowers, 59

Mrs. Terri Charais Bowers, 59, was surrounded by her loving family when she passed away,  after a valiant three year battle with pancreatic and liver cancer, Terri is now pain free. Her love of family and friends kept her fighting, but the Lord has called her home. Terri was known as being exceptionally kind and empathetic, never met anyone she did not like, and no matter the situation she was always positive and was able to lift up those around her. Terri truly believed in the Golden Rule: that we should always treat others the way we wish to be treated, and she urged others to follow this rule to make the world a better place.

 

On December 24th, 1960,  Terri was born, in Rochester. She was a treasured daughter of Theresa and Frank Vojtasek, Sr.  Growing up she shared her childhood with three brothers and a sister.  

 

 

At the St. Joseph Catholic Church in Rochester, Terri married  the love of her life, Mr. Joe Bowers.  They enjoyed over 40 years of life's adventures.  From their union came four beautiful children.  The family tree continued to grow with the added blessings of the three grandchildren.

 

Terri is survived by her best friend and loving husband Joe of 40 years, son Nicholas Bowers and fiancé Laura Robbins, Indianapolis; daughter Amy Bowers, Rochester; son Mitch Bowers and wife Brita, Rochester; son Marcus Bowers and wife Heather, Mendon, Michigan.  Her grandchildren include grandsons Titus and Abel Bowers, Rochester; granddaughter Myla Bowers, Mendon, Michigan; with two more grandsons due in March. Terri also leaves behind her brother Nick Vojtasek, Logansport; brother Mike and wife Niki Vojtasek, Rochester; sister Dianne Demos and husband Louis, Anderson; and brother Frank Vojtasek Jr. and wife Karen, Rochester.

Terri held a deep love and faith in the Lord. She was a lifelong member of St. Joseph Catholic Church Rochester and taught religious education classes for several years. In her younger years, Terri played first base on the First Federal Fillies softball team; and graduated from Rochester High School in 1979. She had worked at Dr. Timothy Ravencroft’s dental office after high school for a few years. Then, after marrying and having four children, Terri fulfilled her life ambition of being a teacher. She earned her bachelor’s degree from Indiana University Kokomo, and earned her master’s degree from Olivet Nazarene University. Terri was a former member of the Optimist Club as well. She was a dedicated teacher at Rochester Middle School for nearly twenty years and felt honored and privileged to have had the opportunity to teach and meet so many wonderful young people. Being a supportive mother was also a huge part of her life. She had travelled to hundreds of baseball and basketball games over the years, including AAU basketball and the younger boys playing college baseball, and last summer was able to enjoy watching her oldest grandson Titus play T-ball. To relax, Terri enjoyed reading and walking. She loved spending time with her family and taking family vacations at the many beaches in Florida. More recently, Terri and Joe were able to take more romantic vacations in Aruba and Hawaii. She always looked forward to taking their yearly Cub Game trips to Cincinnati and Wrigley Field.
