Cliffton Ray Hardy

Cliffton Ray Hardy was born July 5, 1973 in Englewood, California for his parents Dennis (Denny) Walter Hardy and Eva (Buttons) Jeanae Hardy.  He was the first of  two boys that was welcomed in this family.

Cliff began his young life surrounded by cousins and extended family in Bunkerville, NV where he enjoyed farm life and regularly took afternoon naps on the farm tractor.   The family soon moved to southern Utah where he spent the rest of  his life.

He was a hard worker and enjoyed all animals, but especially his dachshund dogs.  Because of his love for his dogs, he felt everyone needed a dog pal.  He spent much of  his time enjoying movies and video games.  He loved watching sports and he was a great fan of the San Francisco Forty-Niners and the Utah Jazz.

He loved his books that he was always collecting and reading.  Unbeknownst to many,  he had a special interest in Pop culture and art, he and his brother spent many hours walking through art museums.

Cliff was quiet but, very intelligent excelling in math and studying accounting.  He never needed a calculator he did the calculating in his head.

He loved his family and spent countless hours playing games and watching movies with his niece Jaiden, and his nephews Dawsen and Braiden.

Cliff was preceded in death by his mother Eva (Buttons) Hardy, his paternal grandparents Walter and Clarise Hardy and his maternal grandfather Robert Taylor.  He is survived by Dennis

(Denny) Hardy (Father), Clayton Tim Hardy (brother), Penny Taylor (maternal grandmother), Jaiden OpalSue Hardy(niece), Dawsen Avery Dennis Hardy (nephew) along with many Aunts, Uncles and  cousins.

Our family is at peace knowing Cliff  has all the answers to his life that he never understood while he was here.  Cliff has joy and is now surrounded by his grandparents and held in his mother’s arms, who he loved dearly.

A private celebration of life will be held at a later date determined by the family.

Arrangements are made under the direction of Spilsbury Mortuary, 110 S Bluff St, St. George, Utah. Friends and family are invited to sign his online guestbook at

  1. We remember the Hardy family well when they lived in New Harmony. their boys were somewhat the same age as two of my boys, Kenyon and Shon. I think Kenyon ran into one of the boys when he was driving for Maverik in St. George and had a good visit with him. We are so sorry for your loss, Dennis. May God comfort you at this time and please know that others are thinking of you.

  2. I am so sorry for your loss. I really enjoyed working with him. I remember He was very quiet and always so kind.

  3. I remember Cliff from years ago. I would always like to go to your ranch and ride 4 wheelers with him and Bode. Sad to hear he left this life so young! God be with all that he left behind and know his spirit lives on.

  4. Denny, we are so sad to hear about Cliff, our prayers and thoughts go out to you. Its been years that we have talked but think about you and your family often.
