A native and lifelong resident of Lafayette, LA, Hardy was the son of the late Obrey Duhon and Laura Broussard Duhon. He and his wife, Maudrey, were founders of Hardy's Cleaners. Hardy was a parishioner of St. Alphonsus Catholic Church. He was a member of the Lafayette Parish Jaycees and served on the board of directors of Vermilion River Planning Commission and Lafayette Tourism Commission. Through his leadership he renewed ancestral relationships by arranging the Acadians of Lafayette and Nova Scotia to meet annually, which still goes on today. Hardy enjoyed family and traveling more than anything else. Keeping up the family property was a "pleasant" chore along with his strip mall. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather and lifelong friend to all.
