Jeffrey Hardy Obituary

Jeffrey Tyson Hardy, 45, of Era, passed away Monday, December 4, 2023, surrounded by his loving family.  Jeff, the youngest son of Autry Dee and Dianna (Cradduck) Hardy, was born May 24, 1978, in Plano, Texas.  

Jeff attended school at Highland and Roscoe ISD’s.  He played for the Roscoe Plowboys football and golf teams.  Jeff attended Texas A&M in Canyon for one year, then decided to become an airplane pilot and mechanic and moved to Texas State Technical College (TSTC) in Waco.  After completing his training in Waco, Jeffrey worked as a mechanic at the airport in Saginaw, Texas.  He earned his pilot license with hopes of flying for a commercial airline.  After several years, Jeff switched gears, returned to TSTC in Sweetwater, and received his associate degree in tractor mechanics.  He was self-employed and continued repairing tractors and farm equipment until 2023, when his health restricted his ability to work.

Jeff was baptized in July 1994 on a youth trip.  He was an active member of the Era Church of Christ in Era, Texas.  Jeff was thoughtful and kind.  He had a heart for helping others and always made new friends wherever he went.

He loved sports and enjoyed a good game of golf.  Jeff was a huge Dallas Cowboys fan and always looked forward to game day. He also enjoyed deep-sea fishing and finding a good fishing hole to spend time with his dad. 

Jeff is survived by his parents, Autry and Dianna Hardy of Era, Texas; one brother, Shawn Hardy and wife Stepheny Hardy from Blackwell, Texas;  two nephews, Drew Hardy from Abilene, Texas, and Douglas Hardy and wife Cambrey Hardy, and their children, Bauer and Brecklyn from Bronte, Texas.  Cousins, Nathan Cradduck from San Angelo and Deanna Pheffer from Mountain Home, Texas.  Cousins Michael Boil, Nickolas Boil, and Peyton Boil from Sweetwater, Texas.  Cousins Judy Tidwell and Amy Mann from Round Rock, Texas.  Aunts Janice Boil of Sweetwater, Texas; Sherry Cradduck, San Saba; Uncles Tommy Self of Round Rock, Texas; and Billy Boil of Sweetwater, Texas, also survived him.  He was preceded in death by grandparents, A. D. and Lura Hardy and James and Mozelle Cradduck; and uncle, Mike Cradduck.
