LONDONDERRY — A Londonderry man is being honored for being a top father and has won a big wardrobe prize thanks to a popular clothing company.
David Croley of Londonderry is one of 50 state winners receiving a men's wardrobe after being named a 2019 New Hampshire Haggar Hall of Fame Dad.
Croley, 53, and father of three, works as an IT manager and was nominated for the award by his 21-year-old daughter Rebecca. The national contest was sponsored by the Haggar Clothing Company, the official jacket provider of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
In her winning entry, Rebecca spoke of her father as someone she could always look up to, that taught her and her siblings about life, love and faith.
For Croley, he is humbled by the award and had no idea his daughter had entered the contest several months ago.
For being named New Hampshire's Hall of Fame Dad, Croley gets a clothing prize, including a new suit and even his own Hall of Fame jacket.
And with his daughter set to be married this year, having a new suit will come in handy, Croley said.
He's very proud of all his children — Rebecca, Elizabeth, 18, and Nathan, 15.
"I am very blessed," he said.
Croley also honors his longstanding marriage to wife Kristen, with a 25-year anniversary coming up in August.
