Roy T. Hardin Obituary
Roy Thomas Hardin, 86, Russellville, passed away Saturday, Feb. 24, 2018, at his home surrounded by his family.

Roy was born near Guntersville, Ala., on Bishop Mountain, the son of the late Buford F. and Laura, nee West, Hardin. He was united in marriage July 10, 1950, in Detroit, Mich., to Billie Marie Moore, who preceded him in death Oct. 27, 2013. Roy worked for Chrysler in Detroit, Mich., before returning to Alabama to work for Redstone Arsenal. He eventually moved to St. Clair to work for Chrysler in Fenton. Over his many years with Chrysler, he worked at various positions, before retiring as a body repairman in 1986. In 2002, they moved to Russellville to be closer to family.

He was a faithful member of the Church of Christ in St. Clair, where he worshiped for over 30 years. After moving to Russellville in 2002, he joined the Fairgrounds Road Church of Christ in Jefferson City, where he remained a faithful member. He enjoyed fishing, hunting and carving canes, as well as working in his basement shop, building and repairing almost anything. His greatest enjoyment was spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren. They were his pride and joy.
