Arthur LaVerne Sackett, son of Charles Arthur Sackett and Priscilla (Miller) Sackett, passed peacefully into his Lord’s Presence on Friday, August 4, 2017 at Omaha Nursing Home, Omaha, NE.

Arthur was born on November 18, 1931 in Omaha and lived most of his life in Omaha and Lincoln. He was a member of the LaVista Old Timers Band, playing kazoo and other noise makers. He loved to sing old songs and perform for retirement centers. He led the adult Bible study at his church for many years. His passion, in his own words, was that “many would put their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and receive eternal life.”
