Fred Hardy II Obituary, Death – I was astonished and saddened to learn of the death of a brilliant man named Fred Hardy II. Fred was a good friend of mine at the high school where we both went, and we spent a lot of time together. Reading the condolence messages, it is evident that he remained that person for a large number of people after he died. These words were left for him by friends and family.
Furthermore, it serves as a reminder to me that life is short and that I should make the most of the time I have here by going on adventures, pushing my comfort zone, and conversing with the people that matter to me. I’m going to make it a point to invite as many of my classmates from our high school’s 71st graduating class as possible to our homecoming this year. I will be there because I do not want to have any regrets about missing the opportunity to have one last conversation with the folks who helped shape me into the person I am today. I am certain that I will attend. I hold the highest regard for you, Fred Hardy II, and I want you to know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
Without your dazzling light, the world appears much more foreboding. Some of the things that will stick with people about you are your contagious smile, the funny catchphrases you used, the imaginative costumes you donned, and the boundless energy you projected in order to continually thrill and inspire everyone you came into touch with. Coach, you are unquestionably a living legend. Your legacy will live on in this life and in the lives of future generations in our Orange Community. I will pray for your beautiful wife and children to have the strength they need, but more importantly, I will pray for you to find the serenity you so much need. I understand how much you require it. Coach Fred, I hope you have a good night’s sleep. We adore you.
