Hardy was born on August 20, 1941, in Breaux Bridge. Hardy spent his entire life working in the construction industry, becoming a true craftsman and leaving an indelible mark on projects across the country.

He had an extraordinary ability to bring laughter into any room and uplift the spirits of those around him. His comedic timing was impeccable, and he took great delight in seeing others joyful.
Outside of work, Hardy found solace in spending time outdoors. He cherished the simple pleasures of life like cutting his grass and watching the birds in his yard. He relished being active and constantly engaged in various projects around his home.
Family held an exceptional place in Hardy's heart; he was truly devoted to those he loved. His wife, children, grandchildren - they were undoubtedly the joy that filled every fiber of his being. He created lasting memories with them through family gatherings, adventures together, and the unwavering support he provided. Hardy's steadfast love and commitment were evident in his actions, as he consistently placed the well-being and happiness of his family above all else.
Proud of his Cajun heritage, Hardy was a testament to his roots. He embraced the culture, traditions, and values of his heritage with immense pride.
