(July 28, 1938—December 30, 2010)

Major Paul Eastman Hardy was promoted to Glory from his home in Old Orchard Beach, Maine.

Paul was born in Nashua, N.H, to J. Eastman and Hazel (Henderson) Hardy. Dedicated under the Salvation Army flag as an infant, Paul grew up in the Army.

From the Nashua, N.H., Corps, Paul entered the School for Officer Training in 1959 as a member of the Great Hearts session.

Paul served as an assistant corps officer and corps officer in Maine. In 1963, he married Lieutenant Shirley Jean Pollard, who joined him at several appointments in Maine and Pennsylvania. Paul was an active musician in The Salvation Army.

In 1996, Paul transferred to Territorial Headquarters as an assistant auditor. In 1998, he became assistant territorial auditor, the appointment from which the Hardys retired in 2003.

Survivors include his wife; two daughters, Major Kathleen L. Stoops of Williamsport, Pa., and Major Bethany J. Starkey of Middletown, Conn.; six grandchildren, Nicholas, Jillian, and Karissa Stoops, and Alayna, Cameron, and Logan Starkey; five sisters, Faith H. Fast and Major Joyce Hardy of Lancaster, Pa., Judith Sadler of Schoharie, N.Y., Major Priscilla Klemanski of Windham, Maine, and Kathleen Hardy of Suffern, N.Y.

Preceding him in death were his parents and an infant grandson, Anthony Stoops.

Messages of condolence for the family may be sent to Major Shirley Hardy, 183A Saco Ave., Old Orchard Beach, ME 04064.
