Charles “Chuck” Cecil Hardy Sr., 79, of Virginia Beach, passed peacefully on August 12 in Virginia Beach, VA.
Chuck was born February 15, 1942 in Norfolk, VA to Raymond and Lucille Hardy. He was preceded in death by his parents and his older brothers Jim Hardy and Raymond Hardy. He is survived by his wife, children, and younger brother Gene Sabatino.
In October 1967, Chuck met a cheeky firecracker named Eileen who would quickly become his lifelong best friend. Chuck and Eileen were married January 10, 1968 in Virginia Beach, VA, and together they built a life they loved.
Chuck and Eileen had six children: LauraLee (Craig) Tushinski, Charles “Chuck” (Chrissy) Hardy Jr., Raymond Hardy, Timothy (Jennifer) Hardy, Christopher (Yesica) Hardy, and Nichole (Kevin) Hardy.
They were also blessed with eight grandchildren, numerous nieces, nephews, and an enormous circle of friends who became family. Chuck was a wonderful husband, father, and friend. He knew the value of a peaceful day spent fishing with his sons but also enjoyed doting on his wife and daughters. Chuck was at his happiest hosting dinners for his large brood and extended family including lifelong family friends Chuck (Kathy) Styron and their daughters Debbie (Clem) Gattano and Beth (Chuck) Dovich. Services will be held Monday, August 16, 2021 at Family Choice Funeral Home on Indian River Rd. Visitation for family and friends will be held at 9:30am, with funeral services beginning at 11am.
I’d like the memory of me to be a happy one.
I’d like to leave an afterglow of smiles when life is done.
I’d like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways,
Of happy times and laughing times and bright and sunny days.
I’d like the tears of those who grieve, to dry before the sun;
Of happy memories that I leave when life is done.
