He loved spending his summers on the beach in Holland, Michigan and Caseville, Michigan. He also had a strong Catholic faith and was a long-term member of St. Bede’s Parish in Southfield.

John is survived by his loving children Katherine Azar, Sandra (Kevin Frampton) Azar, Julie (Steve Bennett), Chris (Sue Rosasco), Mary Pattison, Patrick (Aura Deschamps) Hastings, and Karen (Ron DeRocher) Hastings. He is also survived by his beloved grandchildren, Lucas Hahn, Stephanie, Alexandra, and Nicholas Bennett, Katie Andrew, and Patrick Hastings, Timothy, Natalie, and Brian Pattison, and Amanda and Matthew Hastings.
