He was one of 16 children.  He loved to listen to music, especially jazz like Roy Buchanan and Bad Company. Fishing and just being outside were great ways to pass the days.  Ron was a wonderful chess player and had a favorite set that was glass.  If you ever got the chance to spend time with Ron, you would remember, that he likes people, just not too many at a time. Rabbits and other creatures as long as they didn’t “meow” were his friends, and he had many. 

          Ron is survived by his sisters, Sally Wallander, Becky Williams, Robin Heising, Mary Davis and Sharon Byrne; brother, Harry Hardman; children, Katie Hardman, Ray Hardman and Tammy Zeien; many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

         He is preceded in death by his parents and several siblings. He will be missed by many.
