In addition he is survived by numerous nieces, nephews and many friends. Mr. Jachetta was a well-known livestock dealer, retiring in 1970 because of poor health. His love affair with horses began as a youth when he could be found talking with trainers and breeders as they spun tales about the latest big sale. Before he was big enough to saddle a horse, he was a familiar figure at the blacksmith shop and the public corrals. By the time he was a teen-ager, Mr. Jachetta already had bought and sold a number of horses. As a young man, he drove teams for Driscoll Construction Co. when they were building the city streets and state roads. He later drove their winning team in the Pulling Contest at the Colorado State Fair. He became a foreman for Driscoll in the early 1930s, building roads throughout the state but as horse-drawn teams gradually gave way to machines. Mr. Jachetta lost interest in the road construction business and purchased a livestock dealer's license and returned to the business of livestock purchasing, trading, and dealing. He built up a profitable business but always took time to help young people who showed an interest in horses. Several of his pupils are now successful at training, showing and selling horses. Joe was superintendent of stalls at the Colorado State Fairgrounds during the years Clyde P. Fugate was manager. He will be missed by many. Service, 1 p.m. Friday, George McCarthy Historic Chapel.
