October 9, 1956 - November 2, 2021
Gregory J. “Greg” Hasty, age 65, of New Castle, DE passed away peacefully on the evening of Tuesday, November 2, 2021.
Born in West Chester, PA on October 9, 1956, he was a son of the late Andrew C. and Estelle (Balentine) Hasty. Greg grew up in New Castle, DE and graduated from Delcastle Technical High School in 1975. He enjoyed a career with Amtrak, retiring in 2019.
Greg met the love of his life, Rose, in 1979 and they were married in 1981. The two enjoyed making memories with their four wonderful children, including trips to Delaware beaches, Disney, and camping adventures with friends- who are like family. He was an amazing father. In more recent years, these family adventures have been extended to the grandchildren, who affectionately refer to Greg as ‘Grampy’ or ‘Pop’.
Greg enjoyed bowling and was on a Wednesday night bowling league with some of his closest friends for many years. He and Rose loved traveling to places like Mexico, Jamaica, Virgin Islands and The Bahamas. He was a kind man who appreciated the simple things in life, like good music, walks, cooking, nature, and his beloved rescue dog, Chloe.
In addition to his parents, Greg was preceded in death by his brother, Richard C. Hasty. He is survived by his loving wife of 40 years, Rosemary (Harrity) Hasty of New Castle; children, Andy Hasty (Monica) of Newark, Amber Spitale (John) of Ambler, PA, Zach Hasty of New Castle, and Jennifer Hasty (Nick Gonczkowski) of Wilmington; sisters, Sharon Hasty (Ed Fountain) of Severn, MD and Eleanor Hasty of Bear; grandchildren, Jessica (23), Ashley (21), Evelyn (9), Avery (8), Layla (7), Jack (6); and many cousins, nieces and nephews who loved him dearly.

A visitation for family and friends will be held from 9 am until 10 am on Saturday, November 13, 2021, at Spicer-Mullikin Funeral Home, 1000 North DuPont Parkway, where a memorial service will immediately follow at 10 am.
