Keith Allen Hardesty, 45, passed away October 20, 2020, at 3:41 pm, at Mercy Health – St. Rita’s Medical Center.

Keith was born November 26, 1974 in Lima, OH, to Steve Hardesty who survives in Bluffton and Evelyn (Ball) Bowers who survives in Lima.
He worked at Hancock County Tire for many years where he worked hard and made many lasting friendships. He greatly enjoyed going to the Cairo Gun Club when he was able. Fishing was one of his greatest passions, there were few things that brought him more joy than being out in nature with his line in the water. He loved to play darts, and was a major fan of NASCAR, University of Michigan football, and the Miami Dolphins. Above all else, Keith loved to spend time with his family. He especially loved to spend time with his daughter, Brylee and his siblings, Susan and Anthony with whom he was so close. He was an exceptional man, and he will be greatly missed by all those who were fortunate enough to know him.
