Greg Hardesty was hard-working, honest, loyal, and had a great sense of humor. He could do anything he set his mind to; out-hunt, out-smart and out-work anyone. In 1970, he started his own business. After marriage and three kids, Greg expanded his business. In 1992, an accident took part of his left arm and leg. Despite the accident, he never slowed down, never quit. Instead he made jokes, fabricated tools, and inspired anyone who met him.
