A caring husband, father, grandfather and friend, passed away Thursday, October 23, 2008 in Provo, Utah. We will miss him greatly.
Sidney "Glenn" was born on January 13, 1928 in Magna, Utah to Myrtle Emily Elton and Sidney Lehi Hardman. He married Dorothy Mae Griffin on February 21, 1949 in the Salt Lake Temple.
Glenn enjoyed working with his hands all his life. Woodworking became his love and his means for support. He masterfully designed many beautiful and unique pieces of furniture for family and friends.
Glenn was a true cowboy in every sense of the word… rodeos, horses, boots, complete with hat. He especially enjoyed being with his family. With mom, they attended special events such as blessings, baptisms, weddings, graduations, missionary comings and goings, and even soccer games. In the 11 months since his sweetheart passed away, he filled his days in his house and shop. After a few hours in his shop, he would return to the house to catch a game or watch the news. Friends and family were always stopping by.
He was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served in various callings. People that knew Glenn understood that he knew how to throw a party. Someone used this quote to describe dad, "At work or at play, he did it all the way."
Along with Dorothy, Glenn fulfilled a temple mission for the church in Orlando, Florida. They also served together as workers in the Provo Temple and Mt. Timpanogos Temple a total of 14 years.
Glenn is survived by a sister, Faye Petersen (Clarence), children; Robert Hardman (Chris), Susan Barker (Gary), Debra Fetty (Mick), Kenneth Hardman (Joan), and Kathie Richmond (Dan); 29 grandchildren; 21 great-grandchildren. Glenn was preceded in death by his wife, Dorothy, both parents, and daughter, Cheryl Atwood (Steve).
