Don loved to farm. He enjoyed planting the crops and was very happy when the crops were off and the combine was parked. He also loved to hunt, fish, and spend quality time with his family. Don loved to go for a Sunday drive in his dream car, a Dodge Challenger. He loved his daily coffee and visit with his friends at the C-Store, Cavalier and the Walhalla Cenex.

He is survived by his wife, Karen; children: Nicole (Adam) Minster, Grand Forks, ND and Brenyn Hardy, Walhalla, ND; parents, Bill and Lois Hardy; siblings: Sharon (John) Dunnigan, Darlene (Richard) Stark, Brian (Julie) Hardy, Colleen Hardy (Doug Strand) and Kristi Hardy. He is also survived by many nieces and nephews.

Preceding him in death were his grandparents: William E. “Bill” and Mary Hardy and Joe and Sarah Hillman; uncles: Greemer Hillman, Tom Fischer, Lyle Hardy; and aunt, JoAnn Hardy.
