We Regret to Announce That We Have Had to Discontinue

For years, we have posted regional death notices as a free public service, while taking on the complete cost of publishing ourselves. We can no longer do so.

Without participating Funeral Centres, Cemeteries, Monument Suppliers and Local Businesses advertising with us, we can no longer run this website at a financial deficit.

We have received dozens of emails by folks upset at the discontinuation of our daily updates, and we apologize.  We also love this site, and considered it a great service to the public by accumulating and listing all Regional Obituaries in one spot.

Also, we appreciate the privacy to not contact the families of friends for funeral arrangements who may be shortly passing, as well as, friends not having to frequently check all local funeral centre websites for service information.

Sponsors are welcome to participate and support HastingsObituaries.com by advertising (i.e., local funeral centres, cemeteries, monument suppliers or local businesses, ...we would also include your Banners and Direct Links to your websites) – please  contact us for info!

Participating Funeral Centres will be prominently Featured; within their Region, and within the Obituary Notices, including Links redirecting viewers to your Websites.

We are continuing to publish notices to DurhamObituraies.com …  and also for now, TorontoObituaries.com and HaltonObituaries.com

Thank you for visiting our website.
We plan to have the 9 other Regional Websites back on-line soon!

PARSONS, James 'Jim' - It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of James (Jim) Parsons. Jim passed unexpectedly at his home on January 27, 2018 in Madoc.

Jim was a veteran of the Royal Canadian Air Force, and a retired civil servant. He had a passion for the outdoors, who snowmobiled, cross-country skied, boated and camped.

In retirement he enjoyed winters in Florida and prospecting on the beach with his metal detector.

Jim is survived by his wife Charlotte, children Catherine, Janice (David), Michael and Judith, sisters Carol and Barbara.

Jim is predeceased by his brothers Bob and Gerald and sister Judy.

Jim is also survived by five grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.

Any donations in his memory to the University Hospitals Kingston foundation, 55 Rideau Street Suite 4, Kingston On K7K 2Z8 would be appreciated.
