We are deeply saddened to announce that John Haggerty, Board Member of The Clover Foundation, died unexpectedly on June 7th, 2018. We mourn the loss of our amazing dear friend and our thoughts and prayers go out to John’s wife, Carol, and his children, Colleen, Jeannie, Jill and Julie and Joanne.
John was a very active member of our board and in our agriculture community, helping to assure the youth of Santa Clara County could be educated and supported around agriculture. He helped fiscally drive success within our organization and was never shy about bringing forward ideas and concerns to make the organization stronger.
John joined the Clover Foundation Board in 2000 and has also served as the Santa Clara County 4-H Small Animal Chairman, the Fairgrounds Management Corporation (FMC) Board of Directors, appointed by the Santa Clara County Supervisors and longtime member of the Santa Clara County Fair Livestock Committee. He had seen the positive benefits of 4-H first-hand with his children and those around them as he guided his five daughters through 25 years in the program as a parent, leader, and volunteer. John owned a business, taught college part-time and resided in Saratoga.
A funeral mass will be held at this Saturday at 11am at the Sacred heart Church in Saratoga located at 13716 Saratoga Ave, Saratoga, CA 95070.
