Dr. Lewis Bailey Hasty
December 6, 1923 – April 6, 2018
Dr. Lewis Bailey Hasty, age 94, of Peachtree City, passed away peacefully on April 6, 2018. He was born in Roanoke Rapids, NC, on December 6, 1923, to Lewis Ransome Hasty and Virginia Barnes Hasty. After graduating Roanoke Rapids High School, he was recruited to serve in US Naval Intelligence. His service was not publicly known until the declaration of war following Pearl Harbor. He earned Naval scholarships for premedical studies at the University of Richmond, and to Medical College of Virginia for his medical degree. After his internship, he served as medical officer on the USS Navarro. After finishing his Naval career, he did a residency in obstetrics and gynecology at Emory University. He then practiced in East Point for 36 years. A number of the babies he delivered later returned to him for care when they started their own families.
Dr. Hasty was preceded in death by his sisters, Helen Stephenson and Jean Hodges. He is survived by his wife of nearly 70 years, the former Sally Whitehurst Harding; his brother Charles Hasty (Lois); his children Jeffrey Hasty (Janet), Jennifer Hasty Walden (James, deceased), and Richard Hasty (Jeannie); grandchildren Steven Hasty, Karen Hasty-Zhang, and Emma Hasty; and great-grandson Darwin Zhang.
He was an elder at East Point Presbyterian Church for many years, and in retirement attended Evergreen Church in Peachtree City. He was a long time member of Kiwanis International. He served on the Board of Trustees of South Fulton Hospital and was elected to the presidency of the South Central OB/GYN Society. Lewis enjoyed golf, fishing, and travel. He is fondly remembered by family, friends, and his many patients. His kindness, good humor, and smile will be missed.

Dr. Hasty was a kind and gentle man. My dad was minister of East Point Presbyterian Church for many years. We had a wonderful youth group and his son Jeff was in my class. My thoughts and prayers are with his family. Martha McBath Davis

LB was my sweet brother-in-law. He was a lot older (33 years) than me but I always looked up to and admired him. At times he scared me because he spoke with such a loud and commanding voice but I always knew he was a softy (he delivered babies for gosh sake) and I could get to his heart easily. He and my sister Sally opened their home to me (and my friends) many times when I was single and to my family after I got married ... one of the blessings of being right off I-85. I have many stories I could tell but one of my fondest and most recent memories of LB was when he and Sally invited my husband and I to join them for a fishing trip to Boca Grande. We had a wonderful time ... at all hours of the day and night ... in the sunshine and the STORMS doing whatever it took for each of us to get a catch. I will miss you LB. Rest in peace sweet child of God.
