Michael Edward Hazelwood

August 19, 1947 - May 2, 2023

08/19/1947 - 05/02/2023

Michael Edward Hazelwood, born in Long Beach, California, on August 19, 1947. Passed away unexpectedly at his home in Virginia Beach, Virginia on May 2nd, 2023 at the age of 75.

Despite the shock and sadness of his passing, we choose to remember Mike’s life with a positive and uplifting tone. His passions included fishing, especially deep sea fishing, hunting, gardening, bike riding, swimming and he was a regular at the gym.

But Mike was so much more than his hobbies and interests. He was a loyal friend, and a skilled craftsman in his work. Working for a long time friend Frank Hightower as an electrician, he showed pride in his profession and dedication to his customers.

While we grieve his loss, we take comfort in knowing that Mike left behind a loving family who will keep his memory alive. His son Michael Shane Hazelwood, and wife April, along with his brother Thomas R Hazelwood and wife Pamela, sister Ellen L Hazelwood, and nieces and nephew will cherish their memories of him.

Where do i begin…i’m so very grateful to have you as a cherished friend for many years. Your tender, gentle way of being. stubborn as a mule you were. All those glorious bike rides we shared together . Oh, the memories like when your new seat became wobbly & you couldn’t ride it. We had no tools so i switched bikes & you couldn’t understand how i could do &you couldn’t, lol. I’m a Mom, we can do anything ! Then there’s the time a vine whipped your hat & glasses off. And you really were blind as a bat without them. I will cherish the memories & your friendship until eternity. God Bless & keep you. ❤️🙏

Mikey you will be missed more than I can put into words. You were a friend to me and my girl Ivy since the first day we met, 25 years ago. Always there to make me laugh and to lend a helping hand without question. You were not just my neighbor, you were a dear friend that I loved and confided in. You were one of a kind that’s for sure. It’s hard to believe you’re not next door anymore. My heart is breaking and I will miss you always.
PS- I will be the butterfly Mikey 🦋
