Jon Sackett
Jon Sackett, 69, of Lorain, passed away peacefully at his home, with his loving wife and faithful dog, 'Annie' by his side, on Thursday, January 11, 2024. He fought a valiant battle with numerous illnesses for eight years.
     He was born June 12, 1954 in Amherst, grew up in South Amherst and proudly graduated from South Amherst High School in 1972. After high school he attended Lorain County Community College. Then, later in life, at the age of 50, he attended Youngstown State where he ended up earning his Bachelor's Degree. The love story between him and Penny, beginning when they met as an EMT and nurse, is heartwarming. Their adventures from Texas to Washington, and finally back to Lorain in 1997, showcase a life well-lived and shared.
     His career choices, starting as an EMT and later with Vision Quest, reveal a deep sense of purpose. Jon's passion for working with troubled youth and his wagon train journeys to expose them to the better parts of life, reflect his caring and nurturing nature. He was working for the Ottawa County Juvenile Court and then the Boys & Girls Club, becoming a mentor and counselor which further emphasizes his dedication to helping others.
     Jon's love for his wife, Penny, and his devotion to animals, especially his dog, 'Annie' speaks volumes about his kind and compassionate heart. His connection with nature, whether tending to his vegetable garden or finding joy in watching and feeding birds, highlights a profound appreciation for the simple pleasures in life.
     In commemorating Jon Sackett's life, it's evident that he touched the lives of many through his kindness, mentorship, and love for both people and animals. May his memory be a source of comfort and inspiration for those who knew and loved him.
     He will be dearly missed by his wife, Penelope 'Penny' (nee Keron) and his beloved dog, 'Annie.'
     He is preceded in death by his parents, Peter and Margaret (nee Bogardy) Sackett; and a brother, Chris Sackett.
     The family will receive friends Tuesday, January 16, 2024 from 5 to 7 p.m. in Dovin & Reber Jones Funeral & Cremation Center, 1110 Cooper Foster Park Road, Amherst.
     In lieu of flowers, and to memorialize Jon's love of animals, the family suggests making a donation to the Friendship Animal Protective League, 8303 Murray Ridge Road, Elyria, OH 44035.
