It was in Vancouver, in the late 70's when Frank met Patricia Tobin, a nurse at The Red Cross, who would very soon become the love of his life and his wife. They had one child Megan Hazelton. They eventually settled in Revelstoke, B.C. and made that town their home. In 2014 Frank joined his daughter and grandson Parker Brunetti in Ontario.
Frank Hazelton never had an easy life, by his own standards. He was a recovered drug addict, who was clean and sober for 10 years prior to being diagnosed with stage 4, untreatable Liver Cancer in September 2018. Frank passed away on March 6th, 2019 in Kitchener, Ontario in his daughter Megan and son in law Curtis Barnes' home, surrounded by his family, sober and at peace. He had made every amends and apologies that needed to be made and repaired every relationship well in advance of his diagnosis. He chose the date of death with the assistance of doctor assisted suicide (M.A.I.D.) and was able to end his life on his own terms, with his loved ones by his side the whole time.
We should all be so Lucky.
