HARDIE, Michael Moran June 18, 1946 Feb. 7, 2010 On February 7, 2010 the 
world lost one of the good guys. Major Mike Hardie passed away suddenly 
while working in the British Virgin Islands. Born to Elizabeth Rose and John 
Alexander Hardie, Mike left his North Vancouver home to start a career as a 
fighter pilot with the Canadian Air Force. After thirteen years of beating 
the sound barrier on bases all over Canada, Mike left the Air Force and 
returned to his roots on the North Shore with his growing family. He spent 
the remainder of his career with the federal government as a civil aviation 
inspector. Mike's greatest joys were his wife, family and friends. He is 
survived by his wife and constant companion of forty years, Therese (Mayea), 
and children John (Jessie), Peter (Kirsti), Patrick (Lisa), Elizabeth 
(Dustin), Michael (Renee) and Lorraine. Mike could be found with a spring in 
his step taking his three grandchildren: Nathan, Noah, and Madeleine on 
walks to the park. A generous man who shared his talents for all things 
mechanical, Mike was often asked by family and friends to help repair cars, 
appliances, electronic equipment and home improvements. Whenever asked if he 
could help fix something, his answer was always, "Bring it over and we'll 
have a look". For the last decade, Mike was a  Ham Radio and Morse Code 
operator. He enjoyed refurbishing radios from the 1940's and 1950's. His 
absence will leave a void in the airwaves. Mike exemplified integrity, 
wisdom, loyalty and hard work. He leaves a legacy to be treasured by all who 
knew him.

A memorial service will be held in Mike's honour on February 20th, 2010 at 
11:00am  at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints 941 Lynn Valley
