Jonathan “Jon” Phillip Hardy, 48, of Queen Creek, AZ, passed away suddenly and unexpectedly on December 22, 2023.

Jon was born on March 6, 1975 to John and Lona Hardy in Mountain Home, Idaho. He grew up in the State of Washington until his family moved to Mesa, Arizona in 1985. Jon’s childhood was full of mud puddles, BMX bikes, Superman Underoos, and snakes. As he got older, he fell in love with motorcycles and would frequently talk about his dream to own a Ducati. Snakes were still a frequent topic and often caught with his bare hands.

Jon joyfully served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the Utah Ogden Mission from 1996-1998. He loved to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ and enjoyed serving with his companions. He continued to serve and teach the Gospel as a Ward Mission Leader, Cub Scout Leader, Ward Missionary, and was a Sunday school teacher for 15 years. Jon spoke of his desire to be close to God, and he did his best to be a disciple of Jesus Christ in his daily life.

Jon met his eternal companion, Christina “Tina” Pfeiffer, in June 2000. Tina made the first move after she overheard Jon talking about an archeological dig which peaked her interest. Jon and Tina were married on December 2, 2000. They were sealed in the Mesa, Arizona temple on February 23, 2005, for time and all eternity. Jon and Tina had a love and a friendship most of us dream about. Second to his wife, Jon loved his children more than life itself and considered them his greatest blessing.

Jon is survived by his wife, Christina, and their children: Hendrick Jacob Hardy, Redic Maclamore Hardy (Kimberlin), Abin Thomas Hardy, Ada Thura Hardy, Jens Anders Hardy, Sophia Mae Hardy, Sora Lioma Hardy, and Hyrum Joseph Hardy; his parents, John Lawrence Hardy and Lona Shelley; his siblings, Ann Marie Nicolds (Daniel), Joylyn Beutler (Kerry), Eric Hardy (Krisztina), Charity Fuentes, Christian Hardy, and Miriam Klingler (Chris). Jon leaves behind 20 nieces and nephews, being predeceased by his great niece, Lydia Johnstun.

A viewing will be held on Friday, December 29, 2023, from 6:00-8:00 PM at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints located at 2559 East Combs Road, Queen Creek, Arizona 85140.

The family viewing will be held at the same location from 10:00-11:00 AM on Saturday, December 30, 2023. The funeral service will immediately follow.

    Our hearts hurt for all of Jon’s family and friends. To know him was to love him and we all felt his love back. We are thankful for eternal families and know Jon, Tina, & kids will be together again.

  • I was so sad to hear this news. Iknew Jon when he was a teenager and he and my son Dave were good friends. I enjoyed reading his obituary, whoever wrote it did a good job. Thank you! I wish I could come to the viewing and funeral, but I’m afraid I wont be able to, since I live in Orem, Utah. May god be with the family and may each family member find peace as they travel the road of grief which someday can change to hope and peace.

  • RIP Jonny, you were a good guy. I will think of you often.

  • As with all of you I was shocked and saddened to hear of Jons death. I’ve known Jon since he was about 10years old. He and his family lived next store to me. I was able to first hand watch Jon grow up and become the wonderful man he became. He will be missed by all of us, may he rest in peace.

  • My sincerest condolences to the Hardy Family. Many prayers for Tina and children.

  • Jon was the big brother you always felt accepted with. Loved this man with his humor and genuine happiness. Never seen him sad. Love you brother
