Robert was born on July 22, 1948 in Seguin, Texas to Herman R. and Stella (Wagner) Haecker. He was a graduate of Seguin High School. He proudly served his country in the United States Marine Corp during the Vietnam War before attending Texas Lutheran University. After graduating with a B.S. in Psychology, Robert married Cynthia “Cindy” Kay Nipper on June 16, 1973. They had 43 years together before Cindy passed away in January 2017. Robert is also preceded in death by his parents. Survivors include his loving sons, Russell Haecker and wife, Amanda, and Justin Haecker; grandchildren, Emma, Noah, Benjamin and Hannah Haecker; brother, Eugene Haecker and wife Sandra; sister-in-law, Lorrayne Giese and husband, Richard; brother-in-law, Ronald Nipper and wife, Barbara; numerous nephews and nieces and many friends. Robert was a fierce and loyal friend. He loved the outdoors; hunting and fishing were his biggest passions that he shared and passed on to his sons. More than just working in construction, Robert was a master wood craftsman; he had an eye for precision and artistry that went into many pieces of furniture and décor for his family. He had hands for gardening that he inherited from his own father. Meticulous at whatever task or hobby he set his mind to, he always quietly and patiently produced something beautiful and awing.
