Justin Hardin

April 20, 1976 to Nov 25, 2013, Perkins, kindhearted, all things outdoors and a love of family. These things sum up Justin Ryan Hardin to a tee and give us a glimpse of just some of what will truly be missed with his recent passing on Nov. 25, 2013. Justin Ryan Hardin was born April 20, 1976, to Mike and Brenda Hardin and was a wonderful, albeit ornery and sometimes stern, older brother to Josh and Jeff Hardin and to his cousin, Lisa D’Andrea. The Hardin family was tight, no doubt about that, and was “the” after-school hangout place for a multitude of Justin and his brothers’ friends growing up in the Western Heights area, where Justin went on to graduate high school. Justin had a strong love of nature and shared this love with his sons, Alex, Tyler and Blake Hardin, as soon as they could walk. Whether it was hunting deer, fishing, riding four-wheelers, camping or a boat ride on the lake, Justin relished any excuse to be outdoors. His sons brought Justin great joy, and you could see his eyes light up as he played and roughhoused with them. People search lifetimes for what Justin Ryan Hardin had in a full life, surrounded by family and friends that adored and looked up to him. Justin had a heart for service and took great pride in being part of the Stillwater Fire Department. Being an EMT gave him purpose and a brotherhood that carried him through, making him admired by many a friend and family member. Justin is survived by his sons, Alex Hardin, Tyler Hardin and Blake Hardin; his brothers, Josh and his wife Sarah and Jeff and his wife Gamille; his mother, Brenda Hardin; grandparents, Dale and Darlene Hardin; his cousin, Lisa D’Andrea; numerous nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins. Justin was preceded in death by his father, Mike Hardin, and grandparents, Bob and Ruth Ray.

We welcome you to help us celebrate the life of Justin Ryan Hardin at 10 a.m. Monday at Bill Merritt Memorial Chapel in Bethany. Donations for his children can be made at www.gofundme.com/5hx03k.
