Pete Haak Memorial Fund

Pete Haak Memorial Fund

We regret that we have to say goodbye to our friend Pete Haak, who passed away on February 28, 2023. He will truly be missed. We will never forget his smile and willingness to volunteer. He loved the people and the city of Fountain Valley and was always sharing his talents, energy and love with the community. He and his Car Show team, after celebrating the City’s 50th anniversary, continued to support the Fountain Valley Community for over 13 years by holding the Annual FV Community Foundation Car Show to support the Foundation’s mission.

He was passionate about helping and tirelessly held food drives, delivered turkeys at Thanksgiving, taught some of your kids to swim and stepped up when there was a need.

In order to honor Pete, The FV Community Foundation and his friends would like to set up a Memorial Fund in his name to be used for causes that Pete cared about. We also want to grant his wish and place a memorial bench in the Fountain Valley Sports Park to honor his community service.

If you would like to participate in this endeavor you may do so by clicking to donate online or you may send a check made out to the FV Community Foundation at 10200 Slater Street, Fountain Valley, CA 92708. Please note that it is for the Pete Haak Memorial Fund.

The Foundation is a 501C3 and contributions are tax deductible. The Foundation will work with the city to have the bench placed as close as possible to where the car shows were held. Pete, the community and your friends thank you and your lovely wife Shelley for giving us so much to celebrate and remember.
