Rochester, NY – On October 11, 2021 Alexander Jacob Harding, age 32, passed from this earth and into the arms of Jesus after a long journey with pancreatic cancer. He is survived by his wife, Kaitlin (Farnsworth); their children Aaron, James, Raina, and Eden; his parents Willard and Faith Harding; his brother Joshua (Sarah McKinney) Harding and sister Robin Harding; and many in-laws, nieces, nephews, extended family, and friends, all whom he loved dearly.
Al grew up in Williamson, NY and was very involved in church and boy scouts, later becoming an Eagle Scout. He achieved his bachelor’s degree and MSW from Roberts Wesleyan College and for the last 8 years worked for the Veterans Crisis Line.
Al was most at home spending time with family and friends (preferably around a campfire) engaging in discussions about life and faith. Any activity he was involved with was only worthwhile for him if he had a community to share it with. He loved God and his family more than anything, and leaves a legacy of profound faith for all who knew him.
