So sorry for your loss. Leslie and I sort of grew up together in West Amboy, he had a horse, and he used to let me ride. We were each, an only child, but we enjoyed being together, and our parents were all very good friends. He was just great playmate, I guess you might say, but we both grew up and went on with our lives, and I sort of lost touch with each other, I knew he once lived in Sandy Creek, but after that, I didn't know. May God bless you all.

Mr. Hastings was a great teacher, he made you think out of the box. and I am proud to have been taught by him. God bless the Hastings family . RIP I would like to share a story I made a project in his class and I threw it away I thought it was junk Mr. Hastings took it out of the garbage can and put on display in the show room glass shelf. so the next day in class I was shocked that he did that . he thought it was good enough to display. GREAT teacher!!!!!!
