Halbert Herbert (Bud) Hardrath, age 90, of Roswell, Ga., died on Sunday, Nov. 9, 2014, at his home following a brief illness.

Bud was born on June 7, 1924, on the family farm in Green Grove Township, Clark County, son of Herman and Elsa (Lange) Hardrath.

He was a graduate of Colby High School, received a bachelor’s degree from UW-Stevens Point, and a master’s degree from UW-Madison. On May 5, 1950, he married Marjorie Ruth Reitan in Madison. He worked as a high school science teacher until he relocated his family to Atlanta, Ga., where he retired as a home builder.

Survivors include his brother, Howard, Atlanta, Ga.; a daughter and son-in-law, Sue Hardrath and Sam Troutman, Atlanta, Ga.; son-in-law, Wayne Kramer, Knoxville, Tenn.; two grandsons, Russell Reitan Kramer, Cleveland, Ohio, and John Reed Kramer, Clemson, S.C.; one sister-in-law, Dorthaleen Edwards Hardrath, Owen; and several nieces and nephews.

Bud was preceded in death by his parents; his wife; his brothers, Harvey and Harold; a sister, Edythe (Gilbert) Wiedenhoeft; and a daughter, Sarah Jane Hardrath Kramer.

A family graveside service will be planned for a later date at Beaver Cemetery, Beaver Township.
