Terry E. Hardman, 66, passed away on April 15, 2017, in the comfort of his home in Blue Springs.
He was the son of Jack and Waneta (Roby) Hardman. The only brother to two sisters, Jacque and Jana, he was known as the “laid back one” of the trio.
He was very active in the local Boy Scouts, a member of Troop #381, until he achieved the rank of Eagle Scout in the Tribe of Mic-O-Say in 1965. He graduated from Blue Springs High School in 1968. He joined the United States Postal Service in 1969, becoming a familiar and beloved face among the community he dutifully served for 36 years, until his retirement in 2005.
In 1970, Terry married his sweetheart, Vicki, a union which would bless them with two children. He reveled in the joy of his growing children and their many activities, while happily enjoying some quiet time fishing, mushroom hunting and tinkering with anything he could get his hands on the around the house.
Terry’s life was completed by the addition of his grandchildren, who paid him handsomely in never-ending smiles and giggles.
A son, a brother, a husband, a father, a grandfather… our Terry.
