After struggling for almost a year, Jon Hastings, Age 52 passed away peacefully in Jefferson Hospital on February 5 2021.
Jon was born in Philadelphia and moved to Williamstown as a baby. He was predeceased by his parents, Earl & Helen Hastings, a sister Joyce Kacher and a brother Earl Hastings. He is survived by his children Jared and Amanda, a sister, Gail Marino, a brother Gary Hastings and many nieces and nephews.
Due to a car accident, Jon spent the last 17 years confined to a wheelchair. Despite that obstacle, he was able to live independently in his own home, learned how to drive and was self-sufficient. Jon fought all he could and truly defied the odds these last 17 years. They weren’t easy, especially the last few but he surely fought to be there for his children as long as he could.
There will be a private service for immediate family.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Magee Rehabilitation’s Main Hospital,1513 Race St,, Philadelphia, PA 19102, in Jon’s name.
