John “Jack” Edwin Hazlett, 82, passed peacefully into the arms of our Lord on Friday, March 5, 2021, in his sleep, at his home in Park Ridge, Illinois. The son of Glenn and Ardine (Coakley) Hazlett, Jack was born in Chicago on October 25, 1938. He married the love of his life, Mary Ann (Waytula), 61 years ago. He is the proud father of 3 children including Patricia (a/k/a Sissy) Hazlett and Deborah Hazlett. The adoring Poppie of Amanda (Hazlett) Murphy and “his Jackie”, Jacqueline Hazlett. Loving great-grandfather of Bradley and Tyler Murphy. And favorite Poppie to his furry family: Mickey, Tessy and Sharpie - all whom miss him dearly. Dear brother of the late Lynne (Hazlett) Charon. Brother-in-law of Robert and Patricia (Waytula) Mills and Anthony and Madeline (Melberg) Waytula. Jack was an uncle, cousin and friend to many. Jack was unquestionably a people person, known for his stories and quick comebacks and was frequently referred to as the “Mayor of Bonita Drive” since he could regularly be seen sitting in front of his house talking with current and former neighbors that stopped by.
Jack was the successful owner/operator of the former Haz-Way Delivery Service, loved golfing and bowling and took pride in every basketball, softball, tennis, badminton and bowling competition his kids and grandkids took part in. He was always a teacher, a supporter and our # 1 fan! Visitation will be held at Cumberland Chapels on Friday from 9am-11am. Attendance is limited to 50 persons at any one time and masks are mandatory. There will be a mass of Christian Burial at noon at Mary, Seat of Wisdom Church, Park Ridge, Illinois.

Patti and family, I have no words to tell you how much my heart aches for all of you. One of my favorite quotes is from Hans Christian Andersen, "A human life is a story told by God." And wow Patti, your dad was the epitome of this. I am grateful for the opportunity to know him even for a short time. He told the most wonderful stories, lived a fascinating life and his smile could light up a room. I am looking at the picture of him and it is a perfect example of that smile. I also am grateful that I had the opportunity to be with him while he was watching the Blackhawks, something that you shared with him often Patti and I know he loved! And Mrs. Hazlett, I am so very sorry for your loss, you had a lifetime together and I cannot even imagine how you are feeling. I am praying for comfort which I know you will receive from your lovely family. My prayers for comfort during this difficult time and my love to you all. Janet Frye
