Christopher Richard Harden, 73, a resident of Washington, NC passed away at home surrounded by his family on Tuesday, July 12.
Christopher “Chris” Harden was born to the late Thomas and Mary Harden on July 2, 1949 in New Albany, Indiana. The “Tough as Nails” Marine Corp Vietnam Vet with a faithful, kind, and loving heart for his family and friends. The tried and true American patriot with the entrepreneurial ambition to seek out the American dream, leading the family business to great achievements. Small in stature but mighty in his ambition, he could take anything apart, and most times put it back together, no challenge was too great, a visionary. Quick to reach out his hand to help anyone, a natural giving soul. But most importantly Chris should be remembered as a loving husband, exemplary father, faithful brother, benevolent son of God, and all around great friend who will be greatly missed, leaving a void in many hearts never to be replaced.
Christopher is survived by his wife, Rebecca; his sister, Lisa Mary Harden Brewer; his 4 children and their spouses, Christopher Brent and Allison Sims Harden of Louisville, KY, Matthew Justus and Megan Havens Harden of Chesapeake, VA, Joseph Eric and Bonnie Midgette Swain of Kitty Hawk, NC, Terry Mouchette and Giovanna Rossi Black of Hubert, NC; his grandchildren- Haley Harden Perry, Abigail Marie Swain, Madison Rose Harden, Andrew Harden, and Harbor Harden, and brother in law and spouse, Jerry H and Gwen Calhoun.
