Marion G. Hazelwood of Frederick County, MD, was called home to be with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on December 30, 2021. Born January 17, 1940, in Elgood, WV, he was the son of the late Fred C. and Edna Hazelwood. He was the beloved husband of Glenna (Williams) Hazelwood.
After graduating high school in Athens, WV, he joined the Army and served his country as a paratrooper in Germany. After his military service, he returned to Athens, where he met and married his beautiful wife. He became a stone mason in Maryland, working on many of the buildings in Washington, DC, including Watergate; and also helped build the Potomac Edison building in Frederick, MD. He then worked for Safeway, where he retired after 35 dedicated years.
He loved his family deeply, and enjoyed gardening, building things, and helping others. His favorite thing to do was sing Southern Gospel music, and his favorite song was “No Tears in Heaven.” He was a member of South End Baptist Church, where he served the Lord, and held many positions throughout the years, including Deacon, which he still held at the time of his passing. He was a gentle man, all he wanted was for God’s love to shine through him in everything he said and did.
Survived by his beloved wife of 58 years, Glenna, and sons, Tony and wife, Sheryl; and Jeff and wife, Rochelle; and grandchildren, Joel, Micah, and Arabella. He is also survived by his brothers, Fred and Carl, and sister, Oma; and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, and his brother, Ted.
