Hubert "Sailor" Hackworth


On Jan. 17, 2011, at 8:00 P.M. Hubert Hackworth 95½ fell asleep surrounded by his earthly family and awoke surrounded by his Heavenly family. While there was sorrow for one, there was great rejoicing by the other.
Hack was a kind, gentle and considerate man who loved to tell stories. He used to say that old people should just talk to each other because they wouldn’t remember they’d already heard the same story before.
He was born June 22, 1915 at Teton city, Idaho the son of Edgar E. and Nannie D. Tuck Hackworth. He had two loves in his life and married them both, the first ending in divorce. His second marriage was to Dorothy South, his sweetheart of over 53 years until her passing in 2000.
He served in the Navy during W.W.II from Nov. 1942 and was honorable discharged in Oct. 1945. Hack was a bookkeeper for various businesses. For the last twenty years before their retirement, he and Dorothy owned Hack’s Grocery. He enjoyed being there so immensely that he said he never felt like he was going to work.
Both he and Dorothy were very strong in their faith in the LDS Church, and Hack never said no to a calling. There was a time when he was serving in five callings at once.
Hack had six children, Shirlene Hackworth (deceased-1961; Allen (Loni) Hackworth, St. George, UT./China; Regina Sitton, Sparks, NV.; Lois (Brian) Wright, Caldwell, ID.; Donna Baker, Layton, UT.; and Gerald (Ava) Hackworth, St. Anthony, ID.; who collective gave him 22 grandchildren and 50 great grandchildren, all of whom he greatly loved. Those waiting for him on the other side included Dorothy, Shirlene, His parents, and all of his eight brothers and sisters.
The family wishes to express appreciation to Alliance Hospice for their wonderful care of Dad, and to all the friends and neighbors who visited, brought goodies, shoveled snow and showed they cared.
Funeral services will be conducted Saturday, Jan. 22, 2011 at 2:00 P.M. in the St. Anthony 4th LDS ward chapel with Bishop Kyle Moore, Officiating. Friends may call at the Bidwell Funeral Home Friday from 6 to 7:30 P.M. and at the church one hour prior to the services on Saturday. Burial will be in the St. Anthony Riverview Cemetery where military rites will be preformed by the St. Anthony V.F.W. and American Legion.
