Richard B. Hastings Obituary (169)

The Thursday July 31 edition of the Sacramento Bee publishes an obituary on Davis resident Richard Hastings that I reproduce here. As the Bee account makes clear, he was a foremost figure in Sacramento region historic preservation.

That obituary does not mention that Mr. Hastings was also a major and long-time activist in Davis historic preservation and Davis history endeavors.

I knew him only slightly and for a limited time, but he touched my heart with his gentle and deeply genuine advocacy.
