Obituary of Eddie Hastings


Thomas Edward Hastings died on Saturday at his farm home at lot 30, concession 7, Markham just west of Stouffville, on the very farm and in the same house where he was born 82 years ago. It is recorded that his father was born there too, so that the present occupant of the farm, an only son, is the third generation to operate the place. When the first Hastings came from Ireland to settle at lot 30, only 10 or 20 acres of the land was cleared, and a great part of Markham was in bush land.

The late Edward Hastings who died on Saturday was a quiet unassuming man, members of Peachs' United church, but he took no public office in church or municipal life. As a young man he married Helen Pool who predeceased him. Surviving is a son Thomas on the homestead, and one daughter Miss Annie Hastings R.N.

The funeral on Tuesday from the late home proceeded to Dickson Hill cemetery for interment. The service at the home and graveside was conducted by the pastor Rev. A. J. Orr, and the pall bearers were Messrs. Henry Miller, George Hoover, Harry Warriner, Telfer Wagg, Stanley Hastings, Garnet Francis. Many life-long friends and family associates were present to pay their last respect to a fine old citizen of the district.
