Joseph Marion Haggar, Jr. (Joe) was born on February 6, 1925 and died on June 1, 2012 a faithful Roman Catholic, a devoted family man, a gifted and fair-minded business man, a generous and involved philanthropist, a dedicated civic leader, a man fully alive. He offered hospitality, humility, authenticity, and compassion to those whose lives he touched; and they felt blessed in the relationships. He is survived by his loving wife of 63 years, Isabell Salloum Haggar; by their three children and their spouses: Lydia Novakov and her husband Dan; Joe Haggar III, and his wife Jayne; and Marian Bryan and her husband George; and by their eight grandchildren: Isabell Novakov, Daniel Novakov and his wife Sarah, Jennifer Haggar, Joanne Haggar, Jessie Haggar, Rosie Bryan, Mary Bryan, and Emily Bryan; his sister Rosemary Haggar Vaughan; his sister-in-law, Patty Daley Haggar all of Dallas, Texas; brothers-in-law Mitch M. Salloum and Ron B. Werby of Gulfport, Mississippi; and numerous nieces, nephews and family. He was preceded in death by his parents Rose Mary Wasaff Haggar and Joseph Marion Haggar, Sr. and his brother Edmond R. Haggar, Sr. Joe grew up in the family’s apparel business, a company founded by his father, who included his young children in his business plans, asking their input from an early age. Joe joined his brother Ed in working fulltime following his discharge from the U.S. Navy in 1946, where he served as an officer on the aircraft carrier USS Sicily. His role at Haggar began with overseeing Haggar’s manufacturing operations. With a Bachelor’s Degree in aeronautical and industrial engineering from the University of Notre Dame, he applied what he learned, throughout his career, implementing modern manufacturing systems and equipment that made Haggar the leader in apparel manufacturing technology. After being named President and CEO in 1971, his business scope covered all areas of the company. He assumed the position of Chairman of the Board in 1991 and retired in 1995. After his retirement, Joe managed family, charitable and business interests. Joe was a tireless and passionate devotee of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee. Joe met Danny Thomas when he was only 19. The mission of St. Jude stirred his heart even at such an early age. Joe joined the Hospital Board when its doors opened in 1962, and cumulatively served 35 years. He helped establish the Hospital’s endowment fund, co-chaired the Professional Advisory Board and founded the Dallas Golf Tournament and Party. In the summer of 2010, Joe received the Lifetime Champion Award to recognize his decades of dedication and leadership, and to celebrate the legacy he built nationally and in the DFW area on behalf of the children of St. Jude. He was an ardent supporter of his alma mater, The University of Notre Dame, where he was appointed to the school’s Board of Trustees and remained a Trustee Emeritus until his death, served on the Council for the College of Business Administration, and was awarded an Honorary Monogram. Joe was a member and past president of the Notre Dame Club of Dallas, from which he received the “Man of the Year” Award. Joe contributed to numerous educational institutions and endowed scholarships for inner city Catholic schools. He gave his time, talents and resources to many other civic, social and religious groups to help those in need. Among his other offerings were serving as a board member and past president of St. Paul Hospital Foundation; as a board member of The Catholic Foundation, the Dallas Summer Musicals, the Kidney Foundation of Texas, St. Joseph Residence Retirement Facility and a member of the UT Southwestern Medical Center Board of Visitors and the Dallas Citizens Council. Joe’s business affiliations included serving as president of the Dallas Manufacturers and Wholesalers Association, on the Board of Directors of Brinker International, ENSERCH Corporation, and the Mercantile Bank. He was a member of Young President’s Organization. His civic achievements included spearheading the $175 million Dallas at the Crossroads Bond program in 1967 which most importantly funded the creation of DFW International Airport among other major capital improvements for the city. Joe, a pilot himself, served on the Airport Board, where he chaired the operations, finance, retirement, and compensation committees. He also chaired the Recreation and Entertainment Committee of Goals for Dallas. Joe served as Vice Chairman of the Texas Turnpike Authority where his tenure was especially marked by his invaluable assistance in the development, design, construction and initial operation of the Dallas North Tollway. And, beginning in 1980, he served for two terms on the Dallas City Council where he chaired the City Council Finance and Personal Affairs Committee and the Ad Hoc Search committee for the City Manager. He served on the committees of Human Development, Public Safety, Police & Fire Pension Fund and Legislative Affairs Task Force. Joe was honored by the Dallas Chapter of the National Conference of Christians and Jews for his humanitarian achievements and the Lone Star Chapter of the National Football Foundation Hall of Fame, which gave him its Distinguished American Award. In 1994, he and his brother, Ed, were inducted into the Apparel Industry Hall of Fame as Manufacturers of the Year. In 2003, Joe was voted into the Dallas Business Hall of Fame and in 2006, he and Isabell were the recipients of the Spirit of Generations Award given by The Senior Source. He and his family were honored with The Catholic Foundation Award in 2004 and the 1995 YWCA Family of the Year Award. On the lighter side, Joe is known for his legendary love of Preston Trail golfing and camaraderie, quail hunting even in the most extreme weather conditions and his perennial attendance at Lone Star Park during horse racing season. Joe and his family have been so grateful for the skill and the compassionate care given by his doctors, nurses, their medical teams, and caregivers. The tremendous love and support of family and friends has been greatly appreciated.
