Addison W. Hastie Funeral Tomorrow

Former Department Adjutant of Grand Army Was Marshal of Memorial Day Parades

Known for many years for his widespread interest in civic and community affairs and for his active leadership in the Grand Army of the Republic, Addison W. Hastie, Seattle lawyer and Civil War veteran, died yesterday after a long illness.

Tomorrow afternoon his Civil War comrades and fellow Masons will gather at 2 o’clock in the Corinthian Room of the Masonic Temple to pay last honors to the departed veteran. Burial in Lake View Cemetery will follow the funeral service.

Mr. Hastie had been Adjutant of the Washington and Alaska Department of the Grand Army and of Stevens Post, in which he was an active member. He was familiar to thousands as the Grand Marshal of Memorial Day parades, heading the long columns on his white horse.

Born in Schenectady, New York, May 27, 1847, Mr. Hastie attended Knox College and the Union College of Law, now Northwestern University. During the Civil War he served in Company H, 132nd Illinois Regiment. He was married in 1879 in Peoria, Illinois, to Miss Harriett Harding DeLong, who died in 1912. In 1890 he came to Seattle with his family and entered the practice of law, a profession which he followed until November 15 of this year. From 1895 to 1898 he served as prosecutor of King County.

Mr. Hastie made his home with a son, Warren D. Hastie, 837 West Fulton Street. He is survived also by another son, Walter A. Hastie of Hoquiam and a daughter, Mrs. Francis McKee Adams, wife of Ensign Adams, U.S.S. Nevada, who is now in Seattle.
