David R. Hardican

Of Lincoln, Delaware, passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family on Tuesday, April 20, 2010 at the Delaware Hospice Center in Milford.

He was 66.

David was born on September 8, 1943 in Darby, Pennsylvania to Herbert Barr and Helen (Gregory) Hardican.

Always the patriot, David served his country proudly in the United States Army from 1962 to 1965. Later in life, David enjoyed working as a volunteer at the Delaware Veterans Home in Milford.

He had a natural talent for woodworking, a love of WWII aviation and a gift at repairing just about anything. His greatest love in life, however, was all the special times spent with his family. He enjoyed camping trips with his family, teaching them the value of hard work and the importance of laughter. He was a man who loved, and was loved dearly in return. He was the type of person who made friends everywhere he went, and touched many lives in his time on this Earth.

In addition to his parents, Mr. Hardican was preceded in death by a brother, Herbert "Sandy" Hardican and a sister, Joan Edwards.

He is survived by his best friend and wife of 39 years, Jeanne A. Hardican, three sons; D. Michael Hardican and his fiancA�AC.e Kaitlin Mooney of Cambridge, MD; Steven B.
