Hardy Croom, III
Past President of the Rotary Club of Dunwoody
Sad to report that Hardy Croom, III of Naples, Florida, former member and past president of the Rotary Club of Dunwoody, passed away on December 28, 2018 at the age of 85.
Hardy Croom, III became a member of the Rotary Club of Dunwoody on October 26, 1984, six months after the club chartered. As the General Manager of the Dunwoody Country Club he initiated the club’s relationship with the Dunwoody Country Club where we had our Annual Holiday Luncheon, Annual Awards and Installation Dinner and numerous fundraising events.
Hardy served as president of the Rotary Club of Dunwoody in 1989-1990 when the RI presidential theme was “Enjoy Rotary.” At the 1990 District 690 Conference, which was held at Jekyll Island, Georgia, the Rotary Club of Dunwoody was recognized with the Best All Around Club award.
After resigning from the club on June 30, 2000, Hardy and Maureen moved to Naples, Florida.
On May 17, 2009 Hardy and Maureen returned to Dunwoody as our special guests to attend the RCD 25th Anniversary Gala when we celebrated 25 Years of Making Dreams Real.
We will always cherish the memory of Rotarian Hardy Croom, III and his years of dedicated service in the Rotary Club of Dunwoody.
