Daniel Peter Hackett, 72, of Madison, formerly of East Haven, a beloved husband, brother, and friend, an Air Force Veteran of the 417 squadron, who was a proud American, died on April 6 after a lengthy and hard fought battle with liver disease, in the Neuro ICU, Yale-New Haven Hospital. His devoted, loving wife of 22 years, Bernadette Bimonte-Hackett, his brother Donald Hackett, and many other family members were by his bedside.
Dan was born Dec. 14, 1946, in New Haven to Jack and Jean (Pottenburgh) Hackett. He is preceded in death by his parents and aunt, Jane Hackett. In addition to his wife Bernadette, he leaves to mourn his passing his brother Donald (Peggy) Hackett of East Haven; mother-in-law, Serafina (Pepe) DeMusis; and sisters-in-law Jennifer and (Jim) Kelly, and Genevieve Bimonte and brother-in-law Gary Bimonte.
He is also survived by his niece Christina Bimonte; nephew William Hayes; eight cherished great-nieces and great-nephews; and his many friends, especially from Nick’s Place in Madison. Dan also leaves behind his beloved “fur babies” Bella the Dachshund, and kitties Jake, Jack, and Holly Baby, all of whom provided much comfort and love.
After his retirement from Yale-New Haven Hospital’s HVAC Department, Dan enjoyed traveling to Sanibel Island, the Great Southwest, and his beloved New Hampshire, especially Polly’s Pancake House. Dan enjoyed collecting antique clocks, had a weakness for watches, Ford Mustangs, any kind of dessert, his wife’s Italian cooking, and watching Blue Blood reruns.
The family will receive friends on April 14 from 1 p.m. until the time of service at 3 p.m. in the Clancy-Palumbo Funeral Home (Clancy Funeral Home), 43 Kirkham Ave., East Haven, with reception to follow after service at Nick’s Place, 200 Boston Post Rd., Madison (Dan’s favorite place). Burial will be private with Full Military Honors at East Lawn Cemetery, East Haven.
A special “Thank You” to Dr. Boyer and Diane from the Yale Medicine Digestive Disease service.
In lieu of flowers, please make donations to Animal Haven of New Haven, 89 Mill Rd., North Haven, CT 06473, or Forgotten Felines, PO Box 734, Clinton, CT 06413, in memory of Daniel Hackett.
