Funeral arrangements are pending for retired Abbeville police lieutenant David Hardy.

Hardy, who served 30 years with the Abbeville Police Department, died Thursday after a long battle with cancer. The department announced Hardy's death on its Facebook page.

Hardy came from a police family. His brothers Mike and Tony both served as Abbeville's police chief--Mike from 1990 to 2006; Tony, from 2010 to 2018. Another of his brothers, John, was shot and killed in the line of duty in 1992 while conducting a traffic stop.

In addition to his regular police duties, Hardy also served as the Abbeville Police Department's public information officer.
