It is with great sadness I inform you that Benjamin H. Hardaway, III, MFH, past president of the MFHA passed away this morning. Ben served as the MFHA President from 1981-1984 and as a member of our Hunt Staff Benefit Foundation Board of Directors for seven years. As a Master of Foxhounds for 67 years, he had a profound influence internationally on foxhounds and hunting. As we are saddened by our loss, we equally celebrate a life well lived. Mr. Hardaway was a true icon of our sport.
A memorial service will be held on Tuesday, October 24th, 2:00pm at St. Paul Methodist Church (2101 Wildwood Avenue, Columbus, Georgia 31906). All are invited to join in the wake at Hardaway Hall (8301 Big Shinn Road, Midland, GA 31820) immediately afterwards.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to: Masters of Foxhounds Association of America Foundation or Sportsmen's Alliance.
