Dr Haggerty was an incredible teacher and an even better person. He truly cared about us as students and would go out of his way to help us. He dedicated his time to helping us gain a passion in science, which he had a great passion for. He will truly be missed by everyone at Quinnipiac that was lucky enough to have him as a teacher.

Mark, I'm so sorry for the loss of your brother John. Although there was a disconnect as we all matured and went our own ways, I'm always saddened to lose another soul from the old neighborhood.
May God bless John, you and your respective families in this time of great sorrow.
Sincerely,
George Carey

My deepest condolences go to Professor Haggerty's family and friends. I had Professor Haggerty for my fall and spring semester of Organic Chemistry at Quinnipiac University for this school year of 2012-2013. He was such a nice guy and always explained each experimental procedure along with the material learned thoughtfully and clearly. He also was always nice enough to help me with the many experimental difficulties that I would encounter and was really helpful when I came across issues in writing my lab reports. He made what isn't always a interesting or easy subject fun and feasible. Professor Haggerty believed in his students capability to complete each problem they may encounter and succeed to find the solution. He will be greatly missed and always admired for his intelligence and great teaching abilities. I am so very sorry for your loss.

The short dead-end street where John and his family lived while we were all growing up was a great playground. There was a small group of close friends who's main interest was playing pick-up games of whatever sport was in season. The main athletic field on Chamberlain Street was an old horse pasture. John's favorite football play was giving the ball to one of the smaller younger kids and being the lead blocker for them during end-around sweeps clearing everyone in his path while the youngest of us ran for glory. I don't recall seeing John again once he went off to college. But 40 plus years later, I remember John as a someone who liked to laugh, have fun and was fun to be around.

My first comment was too long and wouldn't fit in the email. So, this is my second thought of John. I recall that when we played baseball, whenever we got a good hit - he would always make a reference to the great Detriot Tigers player, Gates Brown. He would say, "Who do you think you are, Gates Brown?" To this day over 40 years later, when playing ball with kids and they get good hits, I use that obscure Gates Brown reference and while doing so, I think of John. Of course, the kids have no idea who Gates Brown is but it gets them thinking and brings back pleasant memories for me of long lost summers. Thanks to John for some of those wonderful memories.

My thoughts and prayers are being sent to the family. Professor Haggerty will always hold a spot in my heart of a man who loved his job, and loved his students. He is an absolutely incredible man that will always be remembered. I've only known him for 4 months and he left such an amazing impact on me that I can only imagine how many other lives he's touched. I am very sorry for your loss of such an inspirational man.
