Who was he?

Postby Bruce Brown » Sun November 11, 2012, 11:14 pm

This man was probably more knowledgeable in Hamlet numbers than anyone else. He was a super nice guy and had a smile for everyone. This should immediately bring to mind who I'm talking about and he wasn't an accountant. Most words have other words that completely contradict the first wood and is so in this case.

Try the word "soft."

Bruce Hardin, a school bus-mate for five years. I undrstand he went on to be quite involved with sports.

I think Bruce Osburn is right about Bruce Hardin. I remember Hardin for attending Hamlet High School sports competitions of every kind and keeping detailed statistics on legal pads. He probably memorized everything he wrote.

Congratulations Bruce, Lynn, and Jody. You are correct. Bruce Hardin. We lost a truly good man when he passed.

You have him described right Bruce. He was a smiling, congenial, courteous, happy person; don't think there was a bad bone in his body as they used to say. He was the unofficial official statistician for all Red Ram athlethic teams in my day, and I'm sure for later years as well. He was just a great person. He lived out east of where we lived, and I can remember seeing him walking home many a time, with yellow legal pads in hand. He did all that work for the teams on a purely voluntary basis, unless the coaches compensated him somehow in a manner I'm not aware of.

His younger brother Larry was a classmate of mine.

I remember Bruce hanging around the football locker room in(I think) in 1951. One day he had a seizure of some type and scared all us players pretty bad, but Coach Capps knew exactly what to do. First time most of us had seen anything like that.

Bruce also could be seen on the sidelines during Little League Football, he helped out our Jayhawk Coach Clyde Norton in my 7th and 8th grade years[/b]

Bruce would also carry the kids who won the county Punt, Pass & Kick contest to the state finals every year, the year my son won his age group I went with Bruce to Burlington to carry the kids to the play offs. It is a shame that Bruce was never reconized for all he did for the children of Richmond County, I don't know of anyone who loved the children any more than Bruce and most of them loved him too. He also called all the TV stations to report the scores on the Raiders ball games every friday night.

I think Bruce had epilepsy, if I'm not mistaken. He had a seizure outside the main gate at the ball park after a baseball game one night and scared the dickens out of us.

I remember Bruce and his brother well.
