My beloved father, Arthur Junior Tackett, climbed the stairway to heaven on January 6th, 2020.
Junior was born on January 24th, 1972 in Indianapolis. He was preceded in death by his parents, Arthur Franklin Tackett and Evaline Belle Tackett (Romans). He was the youngest of 4 siblings.
He is survived by his son, Kyle (Kaylee) Caudill; grandchildren, Gracie and Cohen Caudill; his sisters, Roxie (Randy) Adkins, Debbie (Roy) Caver, and brother, Donny (Shirley) Tackett; his step-father, Ronald Reuter, and his many nieces and nephews.
Dad was an avid rock music lover, with his favorite band being AC/DC. He loved all sorts of fishing, whether that be deep sea or just popping a line into a local pond. He had great love for salt water fish tanks. He was a loving son, brother, father, uncle, and grandparent. Dad was a gentle soul and always helping others. His last act of generosity being he was an organ donor saving several lives.
God, grant that I may live to fish
until my dying day.
And when the final cast is made
and life has slipped away,
I pray that God’s great landing net
Will catch me in its sweep
And in His mercy, God will judge me
Big enough to keep.
A private celebration of life is to be announced.
