Edward R. Hardison passed away Dec. 15, 2011, in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada.

Hardison was a mentor and friend to many who knew, loved, and respected him, especially the young people at Grace Gospel Church, Caven Presbyterian Church, the many industry colleagues of Moldex Barrie, and the Canadian Institute of Plumbing and Heating (CIPH), where he served as president from 1986-2002.

After retiring, he dedicated a great deal of time and energy volunteering with young people through Habitat for Humanity, Niagara-on-the-Lake Palliative Care, Meals on Wheels, Chateau Gardens, and Grace Gospel Church — always with his partner, friend, and wife, Anita, at his side.

He was predeceased by daughter, Susan, survived by his wife; his son, Jeff (Jenn); his father, five brothers, one sister, and an aunt. Donations may be sent to CNETS Canada (Cancer Research) or Grace Gospel Building Fund.
