Obituary of Carroll G. Hastings
Salisbury, MD, Carroll G. Hastings, son of Gwendolyn Mariner Hastings and W Rhodes Hastings, born February 6, 1945, passed away at Coastal Hospice at the Lake following a brief illness on September 23, 2019.
He is survived by his loving wife of 56 years, Ruth Kelly Hastings; their son Greg Hastings and his wife Jodi, their daughter Barbara Brannock and her husband, Keith; four grand-daughters, Jenna Hastings-Stasulli, husband Tony Stasulli, Allyson Hastings, Kristin Brannock and her fiancé Jordan Perez of Omaha NE, Caroline Brannock of Huntington WV; and a great-granddaughter, Elice Hastings. He is also survived by a brother, Larry Hastings, and his wife Jacque from Palm Beach Gardens FL, a sister-in-law, Patricia Burbage from Salisbury, and many cousins, nieces and nephews.
Carroll was the heart of a loving and stable family. He was a caring husband, and an involved parent; supporting his children, grandchildren and great-grandchild in all their endeavors. He was their number one fan. He could always be counted on for love, support, and practical advice. He was a man of faith, rarely missing his daily bible readings, demonstrating an attitude of gratitude, contentment and positivity; an inspiration to many.
Carroll never met a stranger; took the time, interest and energy to turn acquaintances into lifelong friends; always the one to lend a hand, help-out, and “show up.” He was a loyal, caring and kind friend.
He graduated from Stephen Decatur High School, attended Western Carolina College, and spent a lifetime career in the consumer finance business; managing local offices and supervising offices throughout the Mid-Atlantic Region.
Carroll worked hard and played hard. He loved the outdoors and enjoyed playing golf, fishing, hunting and tending his garden. After his retirement he became a daily, faithful walker. He was a long-term member of the Ocean City Golf and Yacht Club and the Assateague Mobile Sportfishermen’s Association.
A Funeral Service will be held on Saturday, September 28, 2019 at Christ United Methodist Church at 12:00 PM with visitation one hour prior to the service. A reception will immediately follow. Interment will follow in Union Greenbackville Cemetery in Stockton, MD.
