Harold “Hal” Cardona, 61, died peacefully surrounded by loved ones in his home in Noblesville, IN on June 8, 2020 after a short fight with cancer. We will miss his adventurous and fun loving spirit.
Hal was born in Santa Barbara, the oldest son of Antonio and Lois Cardona, and was raised with his sister Carol in California and American Samoa. He graduated from Indio High, CA, and then moved to Indiana to attend Wabash College, where he majored in mathematics.
He married his college sweetheart, Lisa (Zupan) Cardona. Hal found his home with Lisa and they spent 40 years growing together. They had two daughters Emily (Steven) Hice and Allison (Roth) Cardona. Hal was especially tickled to have become a grandfather in recent years to Sullivan Antonio James Hice, the apple of his eye.
Hal and Lisa put down roots in Noblesville in 1986 but always loved travel and new adventures. He had a passion for fast cars and enjoyed watching and attending Indy and Grand Prix races whenever he could.
Hal enjoyed meeting new people and loved to play his tuba. He was a familiar face in many local bands and orchestras; Athenaeum Pops Orchestra, Meisterwinds and the Lapel Band, were a few.
He was a true techy and founded PC Sleuth, a computer systems consulting business. He was beloved by his clients for his ability to explain technical functions in a clear and understandable way.
Hal is survived by his wife Lisa (Noblesville, IN); children Emily (Steven) Hice (Marysville, OH), Allison (Roth) Cardona (Indianapolis, IN); grandchild Sullivan; sister Carol Cardona; aunt Marcy Lindbery; cousins Mary Robles, Patty Robles-Morris, Jim Godwin, Shirley Godwin, Kim McKay and Christie Lindberry; and with many extended family members.
He was preceded in death by his parents Antonio and Lois (Byllesby) Cardona.
A memorial of Hal’s life will be held at a future date, and the family asks that donations be made to Noblesville High School Orchestra in lieu of flowers.
