David Charles Hardy

February 4, 1957 – May 17, 2013

It is with broken hearts we announce the sudden and tragic death of Dave in a vehicle accident.

Dave was son to Bob and Marion Hardy, brother to Paul and Lori; husband to Barb, father to Lydia, Winter, Alan, Maurice, Liam, Molly and Luke.

Dave was born in London, Ont., raised in Brockville, later returning to London.He married and moved to B.C. here with his family starting over. Dave had learned an old trade of horse logging in eastern Ontario and always felt at peace in the woods.

Dave’s simple open honesty was appreciated by many. He was careful to be positive and speak praisefully dealing gently whenever he could. He valued heavenly treasures over earthly ones and loved the Lord. Dave’s strong constitution enabled him to survive the harshness of his illness. He always had time to listen and made a great cup of coffee.

Thanks for making our lives richer and reminding us that all we really need is a song in our hearts, food in our bellies and love in our families. You are loved and missed dearly by all.

A celebration of life service will be held at Black Creek, Mennonite Brethren Church, 7898 Island Highway, Black Creek, Friday, May 31, 2013 at 1PM.
