In memory of

Randy Hazlett

November 25, 1953 -  August 7, 2018


Regretfully we announce the passing of Randy Hazlett on August 7, 2018, in his 65th year. A lifelong musician and writer, Randy always found ways to indulge his creativity even when his professional life took him in other directions. Known for his humour, he enjoyed imparting small smiles and chuckles to all even during sad times like these. Randy was born to the late Gorden and Lorraine Hazlett in East York, where he resided for much of his life. A father to Luke(Heather) and Lindsey with their mother Michele, who despite their later separation never stopped loving each other. A little brother to Gord(Sandy) and the late Dan and Bill, but big brother to Jennifer(Barrie). Uncle of Mike, Wade, Sean, Iffeh, Sammy, Natalie and Amanda. Gran-dy to Josh, Leah and Merida. Cherished friend to Sophie’s and Remarks crowd. Much like his longtime band’s namesake, Freewave, our memories of Randy will go on even if the initial force behind them has ceased to exist. Visitation will take place at THORNTON FUNERAL CENTRE(1200 Thornton Road, North, Oshawa 905-579-6787) on Saturday August 11, 2018 from 12 noon until time of Celebration of Randy’s life at 1pm. Donations in Randy’s name may be made at;

Ecclesiastes 3: 1-8 For everything there is a season... a time to be born and a time to die... even so, it is too soon. You will always be just a Stones throw away. We will Miss You; "Faith has been broken, tears must be cried
Let's do some living after we die
Wild horses couldn't drag me away
Wild, wild horses, we'll ride them some day
Wild horses couldn't drag me away
Wild, wild horses, we'll ride them some day" - xxx
