John George Clish of Jefferson received an early Father’s Day gift when he was named the 2019 Pennsylvania Haggar Hall of Fame Dad.

Clish, 76, a retired coal miner, was nominated by his daughter, Cheryl Umansky, for the national contest, sponsored by Haggar Clothing Co., the Official Jacket Provider of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

In her winning entry, Cheryl describes her dad as a loving father who worked relentlessly as a coal miner for 17 years to provide for his family.

Clish, one of 50 state winners, will receive a Haggar wardrobe of dress and casual pants, a J.M. Haggar suit and an exclusive Haggar Hall of Fame Dad blazer.
