Kenneth Peter Hacik was born on October 18, 1946, to George B. Hacik and Bessie P. Hacik in Newark, New Jersey. He fell asleep in death on April 12, 2023.
Kenneth was raised in Cedar Grove, New Jersey and was associated with the Verona Congregation. He was baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses on January 13, 1968, in Morristown, New Jersey, and faithfully served Jehovah for the remainder of his life. He enjoyed studying the Bible and was a serious and devoted student. Throughout his life, Ken enjoyed many spiritual privileges, including serving as an elder for more than 40 years, regular pioneering, and working on Kingdom Hall building projects. He worked on the Lake Plaza and Buckingham Drive Kingdom Hall projects. He attended the 1958 Convention at Yankee Stadium and the Polo Grounds and volunteered to help at that convention. A highlight for Ken was serving for two weeks as a temporary worker at Brooklyn Bethel. Ken especially enjoyed conducting home Bible studies, giving Bible talks, and shepherding and encouraging the brothers and sisters in the congregation. He truly loved serving Jehovah in whatever capacity he was able to do.
Ken married the love of his life, Marguerite Hacik on December 8, 1973. They unitedly served Jehovah together. He worked for NBC in New York. They moved to Colorado Springs in 1977 and welcomed their son, Peter, in 1978. The family moved to Madison, New Hampshire, and assisted his widowed mother. They returned to Colorado Springs in and spent many years in the Palmer Park Congregation. They most recently attended the Hillside Congregation.
Kenneth enjoyed music and playing the guitar. He also enjoyed cooking and he and Marguerite entertained in their home on many occasions. Ken carefully prepared many delicious meals. He was known for his hospitality, mild spirit, and deep spirituality. Ken had unshakeable faith in the Bible, and Jehovah’s promises of the resurrection and the restoration of the earth to a paradise.
Kenneth is survived by his devoted wife, Marguerite Elizabeth Hacik; and his son, Peter Michael Hacik (Paulette).
He was preceded in death by his parents, George and Bessie Hacik; and by his brother, George J. Hacik.
Kenneth was greatly loved and will be fondly remembered and deeply missed by his family and friends. We look forward to welcoming him back to Paradise.
A Memorial Service will be held, at 1:00 pm, on April 22, 2023, at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, 819 E Vermijo Ave., Colorado Springs, CO 80903.
