He was born December 24, 1953, in Tuscumbia, Missouri, the son of Robert Jarold and Grace Emma (Martin) Hasty.
Bob was a 1971 graduate of Eldon High School and a 1975 graduate of the University of Central Missouri with a Bachelor of Business Administration.
He was united in marriage on September 5, 1981, in Eldon to Renée Marie VanStrien, who survives at the home.
Bob worked for over 39 years with the United States Postal Service as a clerk retiring August 26, 2022. He previously worked for the City of Jefferson with Planning & Code Enforcement, Verslues Surveying, Harms Surveying, and Fasco.
He possessed a strong faith and was a member of Capital City Christian Church, accepting Jesus as his savior at a young age.

Bob played tennis for over 50 years, participating in the Show-Me State Games frequently and “family tennis days” with his children and wife.
