William Hardy Obituary - Hill Funeral Home


A celebration of life will be held at a later date.

It’s impossible to express anything that would be remotely sufficient. I’ll just say….Bill was my office and work partner for the past 22 years. We never had a cross word with one another. We did share the choicest experiences . He was my mentor and became a trusted and awesome friend. He is the older brother I never had. I love Bill and Mary and will remain steadfast in support of Bill and his family!
