With his years came wisdom and Bud could always be counted on to provide guidance or help to his family or other that have sought his advice. Mr. Harden was also a dog owner and loved the special bond an owner has with his furry, four legged companions. He also enjoyed gardening and working on outdoor projects. Backyard sheds, children's playgrounds, fencing, and barns, no matter how complex the project; each was completed and to the amazement of his children seemingly with no written diagrams or instructions!
