JOHN JULIEN HAGGARD, 71, JAMESTOWN, KY (OHIO NATIVE)


John Julien Haggard, 71, passed from this life suddenly on his houseboat on his beloved Lake Cumberland on Monday, August 16, 2021. He was born in West Lafayette, IN on March 19, 1950, a son of the late Rachel (Gossard) and John Marcus Haggard. 

 

John thought every day on the lake was a good one. John's children would tell you their father was a relentless purveyor of apple cider vinegar and chocolate ice cream for your health - he was also known as a prolific texter.

 

The oldest of 6 children growing up in rural Indiana, John met his wife of 50 years, Sharon, on Lake Harmony, Ohio where he developed a life long love of water sports, especially barefoot skiing, before settling in Bluffton, Ohio to raise his family. He never retired from his work as an agricultural consultant where a non-conventional approach to soil health was a life-long passion.
 

Other interests including motorcycling and motorhomes occupied much of his time in later years but spending time with family was always priority number 1. 
 

He was also preceded in death by a brother, Tim Haggard. 


SURVIVORS:
Wife: Sharon Haggard of Jamestown, KY 
3 daughters: Rachel (Heath) Brewer of Mt. Airy, MD;  Sarah (Phil) Shank of Bluffton, OH; Emily (Trevor) Morris of Buckhannon, WV

1 son: Julien, husband of Jeanna Haggard, of Bluffton. OH
2 sisters: Mary Lois Bennett and Rachel Ann Coles 

2 brothers: Ted Haggard and Dan Haggard 

11 grandchildren: Justin, Grace, Addie, Wyatt, Magen, Zoe, Mason, Roman, Micah, Elijah, and Noah


The family chose care and cremation. 


A Celebration of Life Service will be held later in Ohio.

KRISTINA LOUISE SULT, 50, ADAIR COUNTY, KY

 

Kristina Louise Sult, 50, passed away suddenly on Monday, August 9, 2021 from injuries sustained in an auto accident. Tina was born on November 24, 1971 to Peter Everett Wright and Gloria Jean Hunsaker Wright in Hammond, Indiana.
 

She received her degree in human services and counseling from Lindsey Wilson College as another step in her dedication to serving others in her community.

 

She was joined in union with Jeremy Sult in 1993 and gave birth to two children whom she loved fiercely. 

 

Tina was preceded in death by her grandparents: Gene and Gloria Hunsaker and Wilmer and Betty Wright; her mother, Gloria Jean Hunsaker Wright; and her aunt, Gail Louise Hunsaker.

 

SURVIVORS:

2 children: Tyler Scott Sult & Sabrina Lynn Sult

Friends remember her as their rock, the person to whom they could go for any problem, no matter how big or small. Family remembers her as the anchor that held them all together during both life’s darkness and life’s triumph. A spirit like Tina could never be choked by the hands of death, for which she was lives on in each person she touched, now and forever.
