Robert Eugene Hardy

April 04, 1951 - July 04, 2015


Robert (Bob) Eugene Hardy passed away peacefully, yet unexpectedly due to complications from lung surgery, with his family and best friends by his side on July 4, 2015. He was born in Pasco, Washington on April 4, 1951 to Eugene and Clara Hardy. Bob attended schools in the Tri-Cities, before moving with his family to Spokane in 1961. He finished his schooling and graduated from Lewis and Clark High School in 1969.

Following high school, Bob enlisted in the Air National Guard. His assignments were in Spokane and Tacoma. After he retired in 1992, he made his home in Everson, WA where he opened his own business, Fairhaven Post & Parcel, which he owned for 13 years.

Bob was an avid bowler who bowled over 13 perfect (300) games! He received many awards through the years. Anyone who knew Bob knew his passion for bowling. In addition, he loved camping, hunting, and fishing. He always had a fish story! In recent years, he became quite the knife collector, and was passionate about football…involved with over 30 teams in the fantasy football draft.

Bob’s greatest joy was his family and friends. He was an amazing father & husband with a great sense of humor. He had a reputation for being the best guy, buddy, or friend anyone could ever want. Bob had a joke or funny remark for every occasion.

Bob was preceded in death by his parents and his canine buddy…Nick! He is survived by his wife, Tami, and daughter Ashley; sons Chad (Lindsey) Hardy of Spokane, and Shawn (Trish) Hardy of Spokane, four grandchildren: Sydney Hardy, Levin Hardy, and twins Emma and Noah Hardy; two sisters and one brother, Nancy (Wayne) Rau of Spokane, Myrna Henderson of Billings, MT, Bill (Paula) Hardy of Coon Rapids, MN. In addition, he is survived by two aunts, as well as many nieces, nephews and other extended family and friends.

A celebration of life will be held on Saturday, August 15, 2015 at 1:00 p.m. at the American Legion Post #7, 1688 W. Bakerview Rd, Bellingham, WA 98226 .

  1. Love lives on forever…in the memories and in the hearts of all whose lives have been touched by you. Love you forever, my brother Bob.

  2. Tami:
    Mona and I would like to express our deepest condolences regarding Bob’s passing. We were not aware that he was in ill health. We pray that you will find comfort, support and encouragement in God’s tender care and love during this most difficult time. I know that he was a great husband to you and that you will treasure all those great memories that you both shared together during your many years of marriage.

    Sincerely in God’s love,

    Herb and Mona Porter

  3. Bob and I became friends in high school. We had fun, got in trouble and ocasionaly tried to date the same girl. After high scool, we went our separate ways. I had seen him once inthe last 30 years and wish I had a least one other time.
    May you get comfort from the Lord Jesus Christ, inyour time of loss.

    Tami! I guess I hit the wrong button again! Wanted to let you know that we will be there on the 15th of Aug for Bob’s Celebration! I hope you don’t mind that my Mom will be with us! She spends the weekends with us! Hope you and Ashley are doing okay! Miss ya!

  5. Dale and I will miss the fun holiday gatherings and camping. His time here was shorter than we all expected, but he made the most of the time he had. It is comforting to know he and his beloved Nick are together again. Our prayers are with you all.
