Donald "Donnie" G. Hazlett

Donald "Uncle Donnie" Hazlett, age 72, of Swanton, Ohio, passed away June 26, 2022, at Flower Hospital, surrounded by his family. He was born April 12, 1950, to James and Naomi (Mullins) Hazlett. 

He had a love for Harley motorcycles, Corvettes, Jack Daniels, and beautiful women. He would do anything for anyone, whether it was his last dollar or the shoes off his feet. He wasn’t just our uncle, he was known to everyone as Uncle Donnie.  He could be counted on for anything.  Many of his brothers passed away at early ages, and Uncle Donnie watched over all their flocks.

Donnie was an entrepreneur at heart, owning his own bar in Mississippi and operating his over the road semi company. However, the last 21 years of his life were devoted to every job title at Team Johnson. He always gave 110% no matter what job he was doing.

Donnie will be greatly missed by his brother, Charles (Carol) Hazlett, sister; Linda Johnson; sister-in-law, Becky Johnson; and was a special father figure to his nephew, Brandon (Stefanie) Johnson, and nieces Bobby Jo (Wally) Raftery and Brittany (Eric) Stevens. He is also survived by his special cousins, Tom Mullins, Timmy Mullins, Diane Mullins; and many other nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, brothers Pete Johnson, Dave Baer, Sam Hazlett, Tom Hazlett, and Bob Johnson.

Visitation will be held Friday, July 1st from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Weigel Funeral Home in Swanton. Services will be held Tuesday, July 5th at 11:00 a.m. in the funeral home. Interment will follow at East Swanton cemetery. 

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be given to the family or Family House.

I am so sorry for your loss! I think one of my favorite memories of our class reunion was him being our driver. I was the last person that he dropped off and we just talked about everything to nothing and had so much fun doing it! I remember talking a lot about the fact that we went to school together every year starting in kindergarten, lol. He was such a simple man that didn't seem to need a thing, so he was willing to give anything he had to anyone else in need! It was hard not to immediately love him! May he rest in peace and may your entire family find comfort during this difficult time.
