Cramer, a retired U.S. Army sergeant major who now works as a project manager, was nominated by his daughter, Erin Loder, who wrote, “My daddy did so much for us growing up. Selflessly serving in the armed forces and teaching us so much about life. How life is a journey and how you must work for all that you want to be. He is strong, powerful and everything I ever wanted in a father.”

Cramer is one of 52 Haggar Hall of Fame Dads™ from across the nation. Each winner will receive $1,000 in prizes, including a Haggar wardrobe of dress and casual pants, a J.M. Haggar suit, an exclusive Haggar Hall of Fame Dad blazer and a football signed by Pro Football Hall of Famer and honorary Haggar Hall of Fame Dad Emmitt Smith.

“Over the past 90 years, we have dressed millions of dads, and today, we are honored to recognize this inaugural class of Haggar Hall of Fame Dads,” said Haggar CEO Michael Stitt. “The iconic gold Pro Football Hall of Fame jackets and orange Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame jackets made by Haggar symbolize the outstanding achievement that comes from years of dedication and hard work. These dads and father figures bring that same commitment to their roles as members of the workforce, husbands, community leaders and fathers.”

One of the 52 state winners will be selected as the national Haggar Hall of Fame Dad. The national winner will receive a VIP trip of his choice to the Pro Football or Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame enshrinement ceremony, where he will watch as the 2018 Hall of Fame Class dons their Hall of Fame jackets, made by Haggar, for the first time. The national winner will be selected in part by America’s votes, which can be cast through the end of June at www.haggarhofdad.com.
