Gregory Kyle Hardin

Angels came at 8:06 a.m. Saturday, September 24, 2016, and escorted Gregory Kyle Hardin to a pain-free place of peace. His courageous, nine-year struggle with the ravages and pain of cancer ended in Comanche County Medical Center with calmness and serenity. Greg’s birth on November 27, 1962, at Clifton’s Goodall-Witcher Hospital brought joy and pride to his parents, Wanda and James C Hardin. He was joined about four years later by a brother, Barry Todd Hardin. Several years later he gained, through adoption, another brother Brain Joseph Hardin. He enjoyed a childhood and youth on the family farm just north of Meridian where he loved hunting, fishing, and managing livestock. Greg’s life-long love of hunting caused him to request burial at Meridian Memorial Cemetery very near where he shot his first buck.
