Obituaries » Victor Hacker

Victor Hacker, 91, of Delaplane, died peacefully on March 30, 2017. He was born on October 30, 1925 in Sprule, Kentucky, the son of the late John and Della Hacker.

Mr. Hacker was a long time member of Marshall Baptist Church, and he was loved by so many for his generosity, compassion, community involvement and love of family and farming. He will also be remembered as one who used his wealth to preserve hundreds of acres of Virginia’s countryside. His farm, Moreland Farm, was one of the first farms placed in the conservation easement in Fauquier County.
He served many years in the U.S. Army during WWII, and served in Germany, on the Panama Canal in 1943, and at Alexandria’s Fort Hunt as part of the then top secret group (code name P.O. Box 1142) who gathered information that was gleaned from interrogations of many German POWs who had been captured or surrendered and brought to the U.S., which helped the U.S. gain information on nuclear studies and German military technology.

He served on many boards, and was involved in politics. He was the Club President of the Marshall Ruritan Club and later became President of the Hume Ruritan Club. He was a long-standing board member of The Fauquier Livestock Exchange, and contributed to its reconstruction.

He is survived by his beloved wife of 70 years, Rosa Virginia Hacker, and his three children, Joan M. Payne of Marshall, VA (Frank H. Payne, Jr.), Mary F. Shoemaker of Amissville, VA (Richard G. Shoemaker), and John V. Hacker of Flint, TX (Cassondra Hacker); and his 7 grandchildren, Trish Payne Campbell, Bret Andrew Payne, Carmela Foster Cornwell, Rebecca Foster, Victoria Hatfield Thome, Anne Marie Hatfield Viele and Barry James Hatfield, Jr.; and 7 great-grandchildren, Braden and Grace, Ashbey and Darby, Evangeline and Emery, and Charlotte; and, his sister and brother, Thelma Hacker Rose of Taylor, MI, and Lester Hacker of Delaplane, VA. He was predeceased by his daughter, Barbara J. Foster, and his eight brothers and sisters, Oakley, Cecil, Ernest, Genevieve, Ben, Chester, Hazel and Edith.

A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Friday, April 7, at the Marshall Baptist Church. A
private graveside service will be held at the Orlean Cemetery.

Memorial contributions can be made to Marshall Baptist Church, 4121 Winchester Road, Marshall, Virginia 20115.
