James M. Hastings

January 27, 1950 — May 22, 2020

James "Jim" Martin Hastings, 70, passed away unexpectedly on May 22, 2020. Jim was born on January 27, 1950, to Robert and Kathryn (Olson) Hastings. Jim attended school in Felton, MN, and graduated from Oak Grove Lutheran High School in 1968.

On June 13, 1970, he married his high school sweetheart, Mary Rinehardt, and would have soon celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. Jim graduated from NDSU in 1972. He and Mary moved to Felton, to farm, where they eventually took over the farming operation from his parents. Jim retired from farming in 2016.

Jim loved fishing in Canada, pheasant hunting in South Dakota, traveling and attending regional gun shows, morning coffee at the Felton Café, his friends and his "smart phone."

He is survived by his wife of 49 years, Mary; three sons, Joseph (Bridget) Hastings, Hillsboro, ND, John (Kyla) Hastings, Dilworth, MN and Philip Hastings, Sonora, CA; five grandchildren that he very much enjoyed, Jack, Luke, Mark, Ava and Addison Hastings;
his brother, Bradley (Connie) Hastings, Ottertail, MN; and his sister, Beth Lee (Steve) Waskosky, Deer River, MN. He was preceded in death by his parents.

A private graveside service will be held in the Felton Cemetery. Memorials to the charity of the giver's choice are preferred.

Arrangements by Korsmo Funeral Service, Moorhead, MN.
