Jay Hardman

March 20, 1931 ~ August 26, 2018 (age 87)

Jay Hardman, 87, passed away Sunday, August 26, 2018 in his sleep after a struggle with a long illness. Jay was born on March 20, 1931 in Myton,UT.  He was a kind and caring man who was always quick to smile and unafraid of hard work.  He had many jobs in his youth and settled with wife, Frances, on Birch Creek. They ranched independently along with ranching with her family.

  Jay loved his family, friends, dogs, livestock, and playing music.  There was not a day that Jay did not visit friends and family either at coffee or on the phone.  When times were hard Jay was a rock for those around him, encouraging them to be their best selves.

  He is preceded in death by his parents, Hy and Bessie Hardman; brothers, Ray, Lester, Cecil, Royal, and Melvin.

  Survivors include his wife of 57 years, Frances Hardman; brothers, Ned, Fred, Alton, and Raymond; sisters, Nora, Nola, Eva; and numerous family and friends.

  A gathering to celebrate Jay’s life will be Thursday, August 30, at 2pm at the Dupuyer Community Hall.
