Neville Hardy leaves a Deer Isle legacy
The island lost a legend on October 10 with the death of Neville Hardy, Deer Isle’s longtime first selectman. He was 81.
Hardy and friends
Neville Hardy, Twyla Weed and Lew Ellis worked together on the Deer Isle Select Board for many years. “We learned way back we don’t always agree, but it’s okay to disagree and remain friends,” Weed said.
