        Text: Jim Tackett, Sr. rites held

        James M. "Jim" Tackett, Sr., died at home on Monday, May 6, (2002)after a long, valiant battle with cancer. He was surrounded by many loving friends and family.

        Jim was born in Baird, OK, on April 15, 1930. He graduated from Arapaho High in 1948. He attended New Mexico State University on a basketball scholarship, and graduated in 1952 with a B. S. in Agriculture. His team went to the NCAA Tournament in 1952, where he was the second highest scorer in the tournament. He took greater pride in his academic accomplishments, however, which included being selected as a member of Who's Who in Americana Colleges and Universities in 1952.

        He was preceded in death by his father, Thomas L. Tackett; his brother Thomas L. Tackett, Jr.; and his nephew, Brian Tackett (Gulf Shores, AL).

        Jim is survived by his devoted wife of nearly 48 years, Faye Van Horn Tackett; his daughter Karen Tackett and her husband Todd Brooks (Jacksonville, Fl); his son James M. Tackett, Jr. and his wife Amansa and granddaughter Daisy Scout Tackett (Fairview TX); his mother, Mrs. Nell Tackett, age 94 (Clinton OK); his sister, Mrs. Bettie Peters and brother-in-law, C. A. Peters (Altus OK); and nephews Tom Peters (Altus OK), Jerry Peters (Edmond OK) and David Peters (Gulf Shores AL). His family also include 2 great sunts and 2 great uncles, cousins, and loving members of his wife's family.

        He also leaves behind countless friends across the country who provided love, laughter, and support that comforted him and his family during his long illness. The family wishes to extend their deepest gratitude to the staff of Baptist Hospital who have attended to him, and allowed him to live his last few months with the greatest dignity possible.

        There will be a celebration of his life held at 2pm on Thursday, May 9, at the Perdido Bay United Methodist Church (13660 Innerarity Point Road, Pensacola, FL., 32507). The family asks that contributions be made to the church's Memorial Garden Fund 9for details call the church at 850-492-2135)/ Paid Obituary
