OBITUARY Print

Stephen Hastings, 81, of Glen Ellyn, passed away on March 8, 2021. He retired from L.J. Shaw & Company where he worked since 1974, eventually rising to Chief Executive Officer, General Adjuster. His colleagues, co-workers, and friends at L.J. Shaw became like family, supporting him in good times and bad, all along the way.

Steve was an avid reader -- and sometimes editor -- in his retirement. He had an infectious laugh, a razor-sharp intellect, and a passionate curiosity about everything from people to airplanes, especially The Blue Angels. He was the best husband, father, and friend you could have -- honest, funny, compassionate, generous, courageous, and loyal. And he loved a good Manhattan, extra sweet, "no groceries." He will be missed by everyone who knew him.

He is survived by his wife of 57 years, Judi; his children Steve (Michelle) of Carmel, IN, and Heidi (Adam) Hjerpe of Chicago; his grandchildren Meghan and Ben Hastings; sisters Susan (Henry) Bassett of Madison, WI, and Deborah Hastings (Margo Lewis) of Delray Beach, FL; and many cherished nieces, nephews, and cousins. Services for Steve will be private. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Steve's memory to your favorite charity or Old Friends Senior Dog Sanctuary, 12110 Lebanon Road, Mount Juliet, TN 37122. https://ofsds.org
