Gerald Duane "Jerry" Hardy

Son of the late Clarence Hardy and Mary Hardy was born February 14, 1940 in Brainerd, Minnesota. He attended the public schools of Brainerd, MN. At an early age he helped his Father and Mother on the farm. He did many different professions through his career which earned him his title as a "Jackpine Savage". His passion was as a wood working mill rite for IMI/Andersen Windows, where he specialized in building custom windows and doors. He professed his faith in Jesus Christ and joined the Evangelical Free Church of Zimmerman where he was a dedicated member. He was united in holy matrimony to Nancy Hardy in July of 1969. This union was blessed with 5 children. They moved from Brainerd to Zimmerman in 1976 then later to Donna, Texas in 2007. Mr. Hardy was an avid member of the Six Seasons Christian Motor Cycle Club. He loved going on motor cycle trips with his Wife Nancy and friends. They went on many motorcycle ministry trips, which included evangelistic outreach, meeting people and sharing Christ's love with them. He had a very strong passion for hunting, fishing and basically anything involving being outdoors. As a result of his generous spirit and pleasant personality, he was loved by many. His fun and joyous life was as interesting as the stories he loved to share so well, and his influence will forever remain in the lives of all who knew him.
