John William Brackett Jr.

John Wm. Brackett, Jr. of Mashpee passed away peacefully on January 25th, 2020 at The Royal Cotuit Nursing and Rehabilitation Center after a brief period of illness. He was the son of the late John Brackett, Sr. and the late Irma Brackett.

John was a proud veteran of the United States Air Force and the Air National Guard. He worked for several years as a marine mechanic at Falmouth Gun & Tackle. He was an avid fisherman, hunter, and gardener. One of the most enjoyable times of his life was spent traveling the US with his late wife, Estelle, and their beloved beagle, Misty.

John is survived by his sister, Yvonne Brackett Buck and her husband, Randy, of Foley, AL; his step-children: Robert and his wife Sharon of Guyton, GA; Glen and his wife Betty of Great Falls, MT; and Dawn Marie Betterley of Hyannis, MA; as well as six step-grandchildren and several step-great-grandchildren, all of whom he loved as his very own.

Per his wishes, there will be no public memorial service held. He will be laid to rest with his wife at the Massachusetts National Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to a Veteran’s Organization.
