Benjamin D. Hackbarth

March 16, 1989 ~ August 15, 2020 (age 31)


     Benjamin Hackbarth, (Ben) only 31 years old, went to heaven too soon on August 15, 2020. Benjamin was born March 16th, 1989 in LaCrosse, WI.

     Survived by Father and Mother, Karl and Tracy (Behling) Hackbarth, two younger brothers Cole and Brody Hackbarth, and his dog Milo.

     After high school he went on to be an expert certified mechanic. He loved working on vehicles since he was 14. He built his own race car and always helped anyone who needed mechanical help. He would take on anyone else's project before his own. He then started the next part of his journey in his career working for large construction companies. He started working as a general laborer then quickly worked his way up to Lead Quality Control Inspector for the US Government.

His interests include a lot of outdoor activities like hunting, fishing, and exploring the woods.

     Benjamin(Ben) loved everything with a motor including 4 wheelers, motorcycles, racing lawn mowers, trucks, and race cars. He loved guns and was definitely prepared for an apocalypse. He kept himself very informed on current events and was up to date on everything going on in the world. He would definitely want everyone to know that he did not die from covid even if they might try to say he did.

     Benjamin would help anyone from his friends and family with vehicles and house projects all the way to helping a stranger that is stuck in the ditch or had a flat tire. 

     Private arrangements are being made for immediate family only. 

     In lieu of flowers or memorial trees, the family requests donations be made to the Republican Party; as that would have been what Ben wanted. 

You never said I’m leaving,

You never said goodbye.

You were gone before we knew it,

And only God knows why.

We wish that God did not need you in heaven so soon. Benjamin will be greatly missed.

Rest in peace and good luck in your drag races in heaven.
