During his childhood years he lived in Mont Belvieu Texas; Silesia Montana, and Abbeville Louisiana. He was a graduate of Abbeville Highschool. David spent his entire career working in law enforcement. He retired as a Lieutenant after 30 years with the Abbeville Police Department. His work was his passion, and he was dedicated to serving his community and protecting lives. He will be remembered by his fellow officers as a mentor, and as exemplary model of a Law Enforcement Professional. Away from work David was a loving husband, father, brother and grandparent. He was a die-hard “Dallas Cowboys Fan”. His family and friends will remember him as a kind, loving and generous man. Even though David didn’t always know what to do, he always did something. His true happy place was “The Lake”, his Lake House in Lake Conroe, Texas which is commonly known as “CAMP DAVID”, and where many wonderful memories were made. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him, and his memories will be cherished forever. In the words of his wife Kelly “To Know David was To Love Him”. David is survived by his wife, Kelly Broussard Hardy of Maurice; his children, Halle Hardy of Maurice, Chase Hardy (Jenna) of Lafayette, Layne Hardy of Chicago, Jared Langley of Lafayette, and Ethan Langley of Maurice; his grandchildren, Grayson Hardy and Sophia Chauvin; his siblings, Mike Hardy (Janise) of Abbeville, Chris Hardy (Kim) of Abbeville, Tony Hardy of Abbeville, Tim Hardy (Robin) of Prosper, TX., and Pat Hardy (Liz) of Erath; his step mother Neva Hardy of Abbeville; as well as a host of nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, Minos J. Hardy and Ruby Trahan; his brother, John Mark “Dooley” Hardy; his sister-in-law, Trudy Hardy; his niece, Trisha Hardy; his nephew, Joshua Hardy; and his stepbrother, Eddie Meyers.
