Memorial Golf Tournament and fundraiSer for Bill Hardey Amemorial golf tournament and benefit will be held on May 28 in memory of Bill Hardey. Bill passed away on April 10 at the age of 68 after a brave fight with cancer. He leaves behind his three beautiful daughters, Anne, Bonnie, andCar- rie, as well as his two granddaugh- ters, Madilyn and Kristin. Bill grew up in Southern Cali- fornia and always had a passion for serving and protEciing his com- munity. He enlisted in the Marine Corps in 1964 and later served the Los Angeles County Sheriff's De- partment for 25 years, 13 of which were spent here on Catalina Island. He retired in 1997 but remained very active in community pro- grams through the Lion's Club and Veterans of Foreign Wars. Even when'he mov.ed off the Island to Cathedral City in 2000, he started a home security service so that he was always keeping his friends and community members safe. Deputy Burt Lyon fondly re- members working with Bill in the 1990s. "I moved to the Island as a young deputy, and hadthe privi- lege of working with and learning from Bill. One thing I'll always remember him teaching me was when he would walk downtown on patrol. He would check every busi- ness door at night to make sure it was locked and secured, going above the call of duty to protect the members of this community. It is a routine that I still practice today," Lyon said. There are many people in this town that still remember Bill as that kind of guardian to our community. Islander AI Leonhardi said, "Bill was a true protector of the people of Avalon, and always did what was right. He went above and beyond When doing his job, and always took care of the people in Avalon-- residents and visitors alike."
