Clint Howard Haggard
Clint Howard Haggard was born on May 20, 1975, to Johnny Haggard and Debrah Rae
Erb Haggard (Debbie) in Phoenix, Arizona. Clint passed away on November 15, 2023, in
Avondale, Arizona. He was the second child of the family with an older brother, John
Henry, younger brother Chad Everett, sister Katie Beth, and youngest brother Casey Jay
Haggard. Clint was raised in Buckeye, Arizona where he attended Liberty Elementary
School and Buckeye Union High School. He was active on the tennis team and with
Buckeye FFA, where he showed livestock and competed on CDE teams.
Clint learned the meaning of hard work at an early age being raised on the family dairy
farm, where morning chores included feeding baby calves before school. This required
the use of the old chevy truck without power steering. Clint would handle the pedals
and John Henry would handle the steering wheel. Clint was a hard worker, not afraid to
help others. He had several jobs over the years, all of which included hard physical
work. He had a passion for working with horses, something he learned from his dad.
Clint was the family "horse whisperer" and could easily sense why a horse was
struggling. He enjoyed his time working with Phillip Ralls breaking young horses and
attending horse shows. His knowledge and confidence with horses was something we
Clint was lovingly referred to as "Uncle Bonehead" by his nieces and nephews. Often
times he brought the smiles, the jokes, the laughter to any gathering, appropriate or
not. He was full of life and love. His bark was bigger than his bite. He showed his love
by picking on you. His smile will be missed.
Clint was preceded in death by his father, Johnny, his brother Casey and his grandparents, Henry & Beth Haggard and Howard & Beverly Erb.
He is survived by his mother, Debbie Haggard; brothers, John Henry (Karen) Haggard; Chad (Celeste) Haggard; his sister Katie Beth (Paul) Hunter; 10 nieces & nephews: Chase, Straton, Caylen, Cade, Mailey, Rigdon, Waylon, Demi, Walker and
Willie. He is also survived by the entire Haggard and Erb families.
