Memories Timeline


  1. So sorry Danny and the rest of your family prayers of peace and comfort during these difficult days

  2. Dad I love and I will miss you! You had done so much for me and I am the man I am today because of you! I always had you to listen to me and love me no matter what. Wish we could have went to the Robinson Hole one last time. Will definitely know you will be with me and watching over me, Love you Dad and thank you for everything!

  3. My deepest condolences to the all of the Hargis family. I worked at Cardinal Bancshares in the late 80s/early 90s and Bill always took care of our needs through our association with fellow building tenant American Engineering. Bill became a good friend and even helped me with some light projects around my home, given his handiness. I still think of him when I get mail out of the mailbox he put up next to my front door 20 years ago. Throughout our years together, Bill shared many stories of his family. I remember you, Adam, coming to our offices. I don\’t usually pick up the newspaper, so it must have been fate this morning that brings me to this website. Seeing Bill\’s picture brings back all these happy memories of our times together. I\’m so very saddened to learn of his passing. May the love of friends and family bring you comfort at this sad time. Most sincerely, Carie Low Gabriel

  4. So sorry Bobby on hearing the loss of your Dad will be remembering & praying for you and your family during this difficult time may the good Lord be with you and your family
