HAZLETT, Robert E.

Robert Edward Hazlett, age 90 of Elkland, PA passed away on October 4, 2017 at the Green Home in Wellsboro. He was born February 21, 1927 in Corning, NY and was raised in Sabinsville, PA. He served in the US Armed Forces during WWII and was honorably discharged at the conclusion of his service. He was a member of the VFW and a Mason. He worked for General Motors in Tonawanda, NY, retiring in 1985. His passions included reading, golfing, and writing. He and Betty married in 1953 and recently celebrated their 64th anniversary. He was confirmed in St. John’s Episcopal Church, Westfield PA. He observed about his life: “I had a good life. I did what I wanted to do.” A fitting epitaph for a well-lived and well-loved man. Robert (Bob) was preceded in death by his parents, Ferris Brennan Hazlett and Marie McCann Hazlett. The second of seven children, he was preceded in death by siblings: Betty (Hazlett) Ferris, Edwin Hazlett, Ferris Hazlett, Jr., Margaret (Hazlett) Akers, and Sarah (Hazlett) Devling. He is survived by his wife Betty (Gerow) Hazlett, sister Mary (Hazlett) Swartz (and husband Jerry), sister-in-law Marcia (Edwin) Hazlett, and his children: Sylvia (Henry) Wood and Paula Jefferson. He is also survived by grandchildren: Brennan Wood (and wife Milissa) and Tori (Wood) Geer (and husband Rob); and great-grandchildren: Levi Wood and Zoey Geer. Many nieces, nephews, and great-nieces and great-nephews also survive him. And, his cat whom he named Deputy. It was his desire to especially acknowledge Ryan Crawford and Carrie (Crawford) Cannon, Greg Smith and Melissa (Smith) Maegle, who became family to him. A Graveside service will be held on October 14, 2017 1:00pm, Knoxville Riverside Cemetery. Pastor Cathy Dawes of the Knoxville Yoked Churches and AUMC will officiate. Arrangements are in care of Kenyon Funeral Home, Elkland. To send an online condolence visit, www.kenyonfuneralhome.com.
