Herky Hardison

Robert (Herky) P. Hardison, Jr. was born in Lewisburg, TN (1937). He graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy (1961) and served 20 years in the U.S. Navy. After retiring from the Navy, Herky worked for the Department of the Navy as a Civil Service engineer for 20 more years. After retiring from the government in 2005, he moved to Wilmington, NC to be close to his daughter and her family.

Herky was baptized in the Atlantic Ocean at Virginia Beach, VA on 7 April 1974 by Melvin Vaughan. He served as a deacon and an elder at the Norfolk Church of Christ, Norfolk, VA for 30 years. He has served Pine Valley as an elder and is currently leading our Seniors Ministry.
Herky is married to his high school sweetheart, Gayle Thompson (David Lipscomb ’59) in June 1961. They have two children, a son Rob (Harding University ’88) and a daughter Dixie (David Lipscomb ’88).  Herky enjoys being with his granddaughters, Shelby and Sara, gardening, and playing golf. 

His favorite scripture is Romans 8:38-39

“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
