Obituary for John Julien Haggard
John Julien Haggard passed from this life suddenly on his houseboat on his
beloved Lake Cumberland on Monday, August 16th 2021. He thought every day
on the lake was a good one. John's children would tell you their father
was a relentless purveyor of apple cider vinegar and chocolate ice cream
for your health - he was also known as a prolific texter. The oldest of 6
children growing up in rural Indiana, John met his wife of 50 years,
Sharon, on Lake Harmony Ohio where he developed a life long love of water
sports, especially barefoot skiing, before settling in Bluffton, Ohio to
raise his family. He never retired from his work as an agricultural
consultant where a non-conventional approach to soil health was a life-long passion. Other interests including motorcycling and motorhomes occupied much of his time in later years but spending time with family was always priority number 1.
John was born in West Lafayette, IN on March 19, 1950, a son of the late Rachel (Gossard) and John Marcus Haggard.
John is survived by
wife Sharon Haggard, of Jamestown, KY
three daughters, Rachel, wife of Heath Brewer, of Mt. Airy, MD;
Sarah, wife of Phil Shank, of Bluffton, OH;
Emily, wife of Trevor Morris, of Buckhannon, WV;
a son, Julien, husband of Jeanna Haggard, of Bluffton. OH;
two sisters, Mary Lois Bennett, and Rachel Ann Coles
two brothers, Ted Haggard and Dan Haggard
He is also survived by 11 grandchildren, Justin, Grace, Addie, Wyatt, Magen, Zoe, Mason, Roman, Micah, Elijah, and Noah.
He is preceded in death by his parents, and a brother Tim Haggard.
The family chose care and cremation.
A Celebration of Life Service will be held later in Ohio.
