Michael Jeremy Hacker was born on March 26, 1976 in New Ulm to Michael and Brenda (Pfeiffer) Hacker. Mike grew up on a farm in Lafayette before later moving to New Ulm, attended elementary school in New Ulm at St. Mary’s and Holy Trinity Middle School and graduated from New Ulm High School in 1994. After graduating, Mike worked at Enterprise, Jensen Motors, Kraft Foods and Joni’s Catering, but living in different places and seeing different parts of the country was important to him. He lived with his sister and brother-in-law in Fargo, North Dakota, on a horse ranch in Flagstaff, Arizona, in rural New York, and in Northern California, where he had the great pleasure of being with his sister’s nieces. After his many “Adventure”, Mike returned to Minnesota and eventually settled in New Ulm where he was blessed with the joy of becoming a father. After being the best uncle ever to his nieces and nephews for many years, he had the opportunity to be a devoted full-time father to his son, Presley, who was his greatest love and achievement. Presley was his life. Mike had an uncompromising, fun-loving, adventurous spirit and was known for his amazing sense of humor. His presence would fill a room with personality, love and laughter. He was proud of the work he was able to do, but most of all he enjoyed the time he spent with his family, friends and son. Though he was taken from all of us far too soon, countless memories of the good times he had will forever remain in the hearts and minds of those who knew him best. Bless these memories.
