Mr Thacker was once described as being ‘pure Okains’. He was born in 1933 and grew up in Okains Bay, He attended the local school and began his collecting interest of historic items while there. He went onto Christchurch Boys’ High School, trained as a blacksmith, and returned to Okains Bay and developed a successful Hereford stud.
