William C. Hast

EDMOND —     William C. “Bill” Hast, 92, of Edmond, Okla., entered his heavenly home June 15, 2013.  He was born Feb. 6, 1921 to William and Mattie Hast.

    His Savior, family, and souls were his priority. Bill never met a soul that he didn’t love and hold in prayer. He pastored Bodine Baptist Church for 17 years, then God called him to the mission field of Puerto Rico. He labored there 30 years, touching many lives and starting a number of churches. A humble and unassuming man, he was bestowed an honorary Doctorate by Puerto Rico Baptist College. It took him three years to accept to accept this honor, because he didn’t feel worthy of it.  He loved his Spanish Sunday school class at Edmond Road Baptist Church. He loved Spanish and was still studying French at the time he became ill.

    Bill was preceded in death by sisters Louise Hast Hodgson and Lillian Hast, and brother John W. Hast.

    He is survived by his wife Joan; children Charles “Chuck” Hast and wife Iliana, Tim Hast and wife Ruthie, and Jill Hast-Mooney and husband Charles; grandchildren Michael Hast and wife Jennifer, Daniel Hast and wife Joy, Hannah Mooney and Jonathan Mooney; great-grandson, Isaac Hast; and one sister, Eleanor Clifton. Our loss is Heaven’s gain today.

    Services for Bill will be 10 a.m. Wednesday, June 19, at the Edmond Road Baptist Church with interment at Memorial Park Cemetery.

    Services are under the direction of Matthews Funeral Home, Edmond.
