Obituary

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of college football Hall of Fame Coach Wayne Hardin on April 12, 2017.

He resided in both Oreland, PA and Port St. Lucie, FL and was 91 years old.

Wayne was the Head Football coach for both the U.S. Naval Academy (1959-1964) and Temple University (1970-1982).

His love as a father and guidance as a mentor provided the building blocks upon which all of his children based their lives. He will be eternally missed.

He is survived by his four children, Gary and wife Barbara of Bethlehem, Pa, Greg and wife Rebecca of Sidney, BC Canada, Richard and wife Cindy of Ft. Meyers, FL and Sheri Ann of Lansdale, PA.

Wayne was also very proud of his five grandchildren, Patrick, Chris, Andrew, Keith and Jenna.
