I knew Mr. Hardy as the lab supervisor at TxDOT. He was such a kind and soft-spoken person, and loved by all that worked under him. God Bless you all, and prayers for peace and comfort.

Henry and Darleen are two of the nicest and most wonderful people my parents, and my family, have even known. Joni and Julie continue in their parent's Chritian's footsteps. Henry is at peace with Jesus and those friends and family members who have passed before. Heaven has another Angel, this one named Henry!

Julie, my deepest condolences to you and your family for the loss of your precious father. I am glad that you were blessed to have your daddy for so long...even though it is never easy to say that final farewell. Without a doubt, he is rejoicing in Heaven now with our Savior, free from the debilitating illness that made the last two years so difficult for him. May God comfort you and your family in the weeks and months ahead.

We'll never forget the Christmas when Henry was singing in the Cantata and dressed up as an angel with wings and a halo. He was just adorable. When my mother (Elizabeth) saw him she said, “Why Henry, we always KNEW you were an angel but this really proves it!” We'll always remember Henry as the sweetest, kindest gentleman and we will miss him dearly. Much love to his precious wife and daughters.

With Love and Prayers,
The McCown-Calk Family

Henry was a business professional with the highest level of integrity. I worked with Henry when he was the Laboratory Engineer in District 15. He was tough and fair and it was a great pleasure to deal with him. He was one of the nicest men I have ever known. My sincerest condolences to his family for your loss.
