Paul C. Hardy Sr., formerly of Malden and Cotuit, died Sept. 17 th , at 94, in Wakefield, MA. Born in Medford to Charles S. Hardy and Marie (McBride) Hardy, he attended Medford Vocational School. He worked for Coombs MacBeath, then joined the Air Force in 1950. After leaving the service, he worked for Westinghouse and partnered in an appliance repair business. He joined the Malden Fire Department in 1963, retiring at the rank of Captain in 1994. An avid cyclist, golfer, and hockey player, he was a member of the AMC “4000 Foot Club”. He left us with a riddle: why his vanity plate for 20+ years read “ONCE”.
Paul is survived by his wife of 72 years, Lois (Flaherty) Hardy, his children, Pat Hardy (Michael Dwyer), Cheryl Hardy-Faraci (Chuck Faraci), Paul C. Hardy Jr. (Deborah), and 7 grandchildren, Arthur, Alexandra, Devlin, Nina, Christopher, Carolyn and Geneva, as well as many other family members and friends. His daughter, Ellen G. Hardy passed away in 2017.
