VALE WARREN HARDY

He was a true community warrior
ONE of Doonside community warriors, Warren Hardy passed away on 26 July 2021 and is survived by his wife Annette, his children Daniel, Rachel, Samantha, Tammy, Lachlan and the extended family.
Warren was a larger than life character that cared for his local community, helped out wherever and whoever he could and fiercely caring and protective of his family.
 
COVID has been a tragic time for many people but it also robbed us all of getting together to celebrate the life of a truly amazing person and well respected in the community.
 
Warren’s community activities over the past three decades could easily fill a book, but in summary, he was a leader in coordinating local clean up graffiti programs including work with Probation and Parole office; fundraising for community events particularly for Blacktown Relay for Life and served on the organising committee; Doonside Public School P&C (served as President); supported local NAIDOC school events; president for a number of years of the local Doonside Residents Action Group; and coach of football teams.
 
Many of us would remember Warren and his team selling glow sticks on Australia Day concert at Rooty Hill raising money for local community causes.
 
He was always there for a helping hand for neighbours or organising whatever needed to be done for people. Warren was truly the “Go-To” person in our area. 
 
Warren was a fierce fighter on many local issues, particularly for the Doonside Lifts. He wrote for at least 10 years to all Transport Ministers and Premiers calling for the lifts and heavily involved in the petition and media campaign. 
 
Warren’s no nonsense approach often put him at odds with people and occasionally resulting in unnecessary personal attacks. He never gave up. Warren knew what was right and what needed to be done. 
 
His legacy is that he was a wonderfully community minded person and his legacy lives through his wife Annette, his family and all those he helped in the community. 
 
Thank you Warren for making our world a better place. You will be sadly missed but always fondly remember. 
 
Vale Warren Hardy.
