Obituary

Howard Calvin Hardin, 86, of Leavenworth, died Saturday, March 20, 2021, at home. He was born November 10, 1934, in Palestine, Texas, the son of James Oliver and Linnie Ella (Parker) Hardin.

On August 1, 1953, Howard married Mary Jo Hardin in Pasadena, Texas. She survives at the home. He is also survived by two children, Cindie (Dave) Kitts of Leavenworth and Chip Hardin of Richmond, Virginia; and a granddaughter, Chelsea Kitts of Leavenworth.

In 1955, Howard joined the United States Air Force. One of his favorite duty stations was the Strategic Command in Florida. After several moves with the Air Force his last assignment was at Ft. Leavenworth before retiring in 1975. He then went to work for the Leavenworth Federal Penitentiary, where his coworkers knew him as “Howie”, and retired from there in 1995.

Howard was preceded in death by his parents and three siblings, Sonny Hardin, Jeff Hardin and Margaret Crowder.

He enjoyed fishing, hunting and woodworking. Howard also loved riding motorcycles and if they broke down, he enjoyed fixing them back up and riding them again.
