August 21, 1945 – August 15, 2019
It is with profound sadness we announce the passing of Blaine Charles Hardie. He was born in Arborfield, Saskatchewan, passing at home in Duncan, B.C. after a brief battle with cancer.
Cherished by Jan, his wife of 51 years, and two sons: Darryl and Terri-Anne; Duaine and Lorrie; and his beloved grandchildren: Breanna, Ethan, Braeden and Carley. Survived also by brother, Garth and Judie Hardie; sisters-in-law: Jill and Don Godkin, and Joyce Hurford and Lynnie Ford; and nieces and nephews & other relatives Canada-wide and in Scotland.
Predeceased by his parents: Charles and Jean Hardie; brother, Donald; and sister-in-law, Joan and Don McVey.
A Heavy Duty Mechanic by trade, Blaine worked for Arrow Transport, Doman Transport and Trans Isle Freightways. His hobby of beekeeping became “Hardie Honey”. Blaine was a huge part of the Beekeeping industry and the Agricultural Community, locally and provincially. He enjoyed fishing at Port Renfrew, hunting, curling and playing cards, especially with his grandchildren.
His friendship, historical memory and presence will be missed by many.
Special thanks to Dr. V. Masuda and the Palliative Home Care Team West.
