John “Ricky” Taylor Hardison Jr., age 65, of Chocowinity, passed away on May 3, 2021 at his home surrounded by his loving family.
He was born on February 27, 1956 in Beaufort County to the late John and Grace (Carawan) Hardison.

Along with his parents, John was preceded in death by his brother, Charles Hardison.
John is survived by his daughter, Christina Hardison of Chocowinity; son and daughter-in-law, Ricky and Dawn) Hardison of Washington, NC; granddaughter, Briana Small; three grandsons, Zachary Sutherland, Hunter Hardison, and Colton Hardison; two Sisters, Judy Hardison and Patricia Tetterton; four cousins, Kelvin Hardison, Tommy Hardison, Perry Hardison and (his best friend), Thomas Hardison.
