Brian Joseph Hackett, 59, of Baldwin, NY and formerly of Ridgefield, was called home on March 7, 2017 at New York Presbyterian Hospital, the result of a fast and furious battle with cancer. The only son of the late Joseph and Maureen (Durkin) Hackett, Brian was born in Oceanside, NY on March 18, 1957.
Before moving to Ridgefield, Brian attended St. Rose of Lima in Massapequa, NY. The move to Ridgefield began on Christopher Road, where Mamanasco Lake and Manresa Retreat House became his backyard. Brian’s love of the great outdoors soon made him a member of St. Mary’s Cub Scout Pack 76 and Boy Scout Troop 107.
