Rodney Hastings, 57, unexpectedly collapsed at his home and was taken to the Providence Little Company of Mary Medical Center, in Torrance, CA. After almost 3-days in a coma, he passed on January 16, 2018 at 4:04 pm.
Rodney did not have life insurance and there are no proceeds from his estate to cover funeral expenses.
Throughout his life, Rodney has always been a generous and selfless person. He was pre-registered as an organ donor and even at the end of his life several of his critical organs were donated to bring precious life to others. That is just how he was.
Local memorial services have been confirmed for Saturday, February 24, 2018 at 4:00 PM in Wayfarers Chapel, 5755 Palos Verdes Dr S, Rancho Palos Verdes, near his home in Southern California. (No flowers, please.) At a later date, Rodney will then be transported to Belmont Memorial Park, Fresno, California, where he will be placed to rest aside his mother, Beverly.
Rodney leaves a loving 15-year-old daughter, also named Beverly, who dreams of becoming a neonatal physician, and her 23-year old sister Franchesca.
We are respectfully seeking your generosity to help our Rodney take one last lap around the track and make this final journey home and to help bridge the gap left by the devastating early loss of a beloved and devoted father.
This Memorial & Education Fund will be utilized to cover expenses related to Rodney’s local and final funeral and to start an educational trust fund which will become the foundation for Beverly’s university education.
Any donation, no matter how small, will be greatly appreciated.
