Our thoughts and prayers are with you upon the loss of your dad. He and your mother, Jane, were actively involved with the startup of the Ogeechee Youth Soccer League along with me, my wife Marilynn and several other that were on the original board of directors. I am an Air Force veteran also and your Dad and I spent many hours on the soccer fields both coaching and refereeing together. A great man that will be missed by many.

Brothers my sympathy for your father’s passing. I always enjoyed speaking with your dad usually at hospital cafeteria or at breakfast sites in Statesboro. Jim was a fine man and veteran and friend. Jesus comfort your families.

Growing up in the 1980s, I played Ogeechee youth soccer Even though he was one of the many coaches I had during my little league years, Mr. Haddock was one who stood out. He was a good coach but an even better man. After soccer, I briefly attended Bulloch Academy during middle school and would run into Mr. Haddock at BA sports games while he was watching his sons play. He was always interested in how I was doing and always had something supportive to say to me. Even though I have not seen him in 30 years, I read this obituary and felt led by God to extend my heartfelt condolences to your family. He was a good man.
