Mr. Hardin died Sun., June 28, 2015. He fought a hard battle with esophageal cancer and he is now resting with his Heavenly Father and in no longer suffering. He worked 30 years at Delphi and loved the guys he worked with, many were like family. He loved his own family and grandchildren and looked forward to their family vacation so they could all be together for a week under one roof. He was the one that could make everyone laugh when he wasn’t even trying because he was very quick-witted. He had the kindest, biggest heart and gave many dollars in secret to people who were having a hard time because he was always willing to help. He enjoyed his church family at Fairview “The Grace Place” and always looked forward to the small group that he and his wife were involved with. He was preceded in death by a brother, Mike Hardin and his father, Herman Hardin.
He is survived by his devoted and loving wife of 42 years, Paula Alston Hardin; two daughters, Hannah Witt (Tim) and Haley Roberts (Matt); five grandchildren, Landon Terry, Jackson Roberts, Rhett Roberts, Tyde Witt and Saban Witt; his mother, Edna Pitt Hardin; a brother, Rickey Hardin (Sandy); and a sister, Sarah Hardin Holmes (Benny).
