Doyle Edwin Hasty, 76, of Shelbyville passed away Sunday, April 3, 2022.

A celebration of life will be held at 3 p.m. Sunday, April 10 at Edgemont Baptist Church, where he was a deacon, with Bro. Bobby McGee officiating. Burial will follow at Willow Mount Cemetery. Visitation will begin at 12:30 p.m.

Born on July 28, 1945, in Shelbyville, he was the firstborn son of the late Hollis Edwin and Judith Frances Williams Hasty.

A member of the SCHS class of 1963, he earned a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering and a master’s degree in engineering administration, both from The University of Tennessee, and a doctorate in higher education from Nova Southeastern University. He was a licensed Professional Engineer (PE) in Tennessee.

After completing a cooperative education program in engineering at Arnold Engineering Development Center during college, he began full-time employment there as an engineer in June 1968. In fall 1980, he began a 40-year career as a professor at Motlow State Community College; he taught 40 different courses in engineering, physics, computer science, and mathematics during that time.

On June 16, 1968, he married Linda Hester Hasty, who survives him. He is also survived by his sons, Darin E. Hasty and his wife Michelle of Shelbyville and Derek T. Hasty and his wife Molly of Simpsonville, Kentucky; four grandchildren, Dayton E. Hasty and Dawson C. Hasty of Shelbyville and Lucy A. Hasty and Boyd (Bo) T. Hasty of Simpsonville, Kentucky; brother, Gary L. Hasty and his wife Donna of Brentwood; sister- and brother-in-law, Ann and Fred Patterson of Unionville; three nieces, two nephews, and several first cousins and their families.

Doyle enjoyed traveling, especially cruising with his entire family, following the stock market, and researching his family genealogy.

In lieu of flowers, the family prefers contributions be made to three local organizations they support: Bedford Builds Habitat for Humanity (bedfordbuildshabitat.org), First Choice Crisis Pregnancy Center (firstchoicepregnancy.com), or Shelbyville Community Soup Kitchen (shelbyvillesoupkitchen.org).

Doak-Howell Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
