Default Joe "I Want to Die Broke" Hardy Files for Divorce

Joe Hardy files for divorce
Wednesday, August 22, 2007
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Joe Hardy, the founder of 84 Lumber Co. and a Fayette County commissioner, has filed for divorce from Kristin Georgi, 23, his third wife.

Mr. Hardy, 84, filed Monday for the divorce, according to the Uniontown Herald Standard newspaper. The court papers cited irreconcilable differences.

The couple were married May 5 in Las Vegas.

For those of you who aren't from the Pittsburgh area, Joe Hardy is somewhat of a local laughing-stock with a typical "small town rich" person mentality, and far more money than class.

His daughter Maggie now runs all the 84 Lumber-related businesses, and she's a highly competent and shrewd businessperson; the whole 23-year old shampoo girl wedding thing must have driven her nuts. For more on Joe, here's his Wikipedia entry: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joe_Hardy

Depending on who negotiated the pre-nup, he may very well get his "die broke" wish!

In the meantime, such sad and unexpected news...if those two crazy kids can't make it together, what hope is there for the rest of us?
