Obituary for Arthur Junior Tackett


Arthur Junior Tackett

January 24, 1972 - January 6, 2020

 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. 

  Fisherman’s Prayer 

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.

Kyle my heart goes out to you. I'm so very sorry to hear about your father. I'm sorry I never had the pleasure of meeting your Dad but, he had to gave been a very Loving, Caring & highly respectable man. Because I have met you, I see all the things Kaylee post. Your father raised & taught you properly how to treat & care for a woman. I'm so happy for you & Kaylee both to have met each other. She deserves a man like you, which in return must reflect the wonderful man your father must have been. I truly believe everything happens for a reason. Though we dont know God's plan, he has a reason. Sending lots of Love & Hugs to You, Kaylee & the kids

Junior was my best friend I love him like a brother. I Cant believe he is gone. Sending love to the family from Maryland. Some of my best memories my endless summers was spent running around with my best friend. Fishing from Morning until night at the beach. Cat fishing all night long in a some muddy lake in Indiana. Driving to every salt water fish store from Indy to the east coast because we both shared a love for salt water. Sleep overs as a kid in my dads camper. He will never be replaced in my life and will always be in my memories. Rock on and rest easy my friend.
