Obituary

Hardy Lane Williams passed away on July 8, 2019, at age 86 at Hospice of the Valley, Surprise,
AZ. He was preceded in death by his first wife, Donna Meredith Williams (1983). He is
survived by their children Cherri Lee (and husband Bill Lee) of Wittmann Arizona, Hardy (Hal)
Williams of Salem, Virginia, and his sons, Jeremy and Joshua as well as his grandchildren
Taylor, Anthony and Caden. He is also survived by his sister Stacia (Peaches) Klassen and her
husband Hank as well as their children Tara and Rick (and his children and spouse) all of whom
live in Florida. He also has numerous additional relatives that live in Louisiana.

Hardy was born January 23, 1933 in Bogalusa, Louisiana to parents Dolores Adkins and Morris
Williams. He was raised for many years by Dolores (DeDe) and his step-father Louis Gazano.
His friends and family knew him as Dick or Dickie. He met Donna while in the U.S Air Force
early in his career which spanned 20 years and 5 months. He started his Air Force career as a
fire fighter but a short time later cross trained to aircraft maintenance. They traveled throughout
the United States and overseas which afforded his children a unique life experience. He retired
from USAF in September 1971 at Barksdale, AFB, Louisiana and moved to Virginia where the
majority of Donna’s family lived. After retirement Hardy worked in air conditioning repair.

He decided to try Arizona living after his daughter moved to the state in late 2000. He came out
to visit and decided the warmer weather suited him better than the cold Virginia winters. He
lived in several different locations in the Phoenix area but at the time of his passing had been
living at Amethyst Gardens in Peoria where he made many wonderful friends and enjoyed the
beauty of the environment and the employees there. He enjoyed his backyard garden and being
the handy man for many of his friends at Amethyst.

Memorial contributions may be made to Hospice of the Valley, 1510 E Flower Street, Phoenix,
AZ, 85014. The family is forever grateful to their comforting care in this time of sorrow.

I first met Hardy when volunteering at LifeStream. He would always come to our karaoke afternoons. Then my husband and I started entertaining and Hardy loved singing along with Walt. We even gave him his own microphone to use. He was responsible for getting us to entertain at The Gardens when he moved there. His favorite songs to sing were Wings of a Dove and Your Cheating Heart along with I Saw the Light. He was loved by so many and we will never forget his smile and hugs. RIP friend. We will miss you so much. Love, Terri and Walt
