It is with heavy hearts that we announce the peaceful passing of Roland  (Roly) Hazel. He is survived by his loving wife Beulah of 20 years and youngest brother Jean Guy as well as his four children, Nancy, Daniel, Michelle and Susan (David) as well as nieces and nephews. He was affectionally called Buppa/Grandpa by his grandchildren, Trevor, Kristy, Carolyn, Steven, Marty, Scott, Matt, Alana and Kevin. His legacy lives on in his great-grandchildren Kayla, Jack, Kelsey, Kylie, Sullivan, Lewis, Leila, Drew, Mikayla, Mason, Lucas, Kaitlyn, Makenzie, Griffin, Beckett and Kate.
Roland was predeceased by parents Exilda & Georges Hazel, his first wife Muriel, mother of his four children, siblings Georges, Arthur, Anna, Exilda and daughter-in-law Rose and two sons-in-law, Rusty and Ron.
He was born in Montreal and his many years in the military sparked his interest in travelling, be it Europe, Canada or the United States. After the military he transitioned his career to scheduling transportation in West Island of Montreal. This theme continued with a move to California where he worked with local bus transport. As a man open to new adventures he settled in Florida and worked in condominium management. Roland loved challenging himself and was always open to learning, from becoming a watch-maker, building play furniture for his children, finishing basements in the many family homes, to testing technology programs in their early stages. With a young family, he built our first pull-out travel trailer and introduced his family to camping – a gift that allowed his children new sights and openness to meeting new people. Upon retirement, he shared his diverse computer knowledge by volunteering and teaching computer classes to seniors allowing them an opportunity to connect with their families and news from around the world. He passed his love of technology on to his family by giving them computers and programs to create family newsletters that went back and forth throughout the years.
Cruising with Beulah and his children was a highlight in later years providing lasting memories and joy. We will treasure our time together.
Roland lived life to the fullest, and always made family his priority. When asked about his life he said he had no regrets. His positive approach to life and robust sense of humor set an example for all who knew and loved him.
The family would like to extend appreciation and thanks to the hospice care he received from Compassionate Care and Cornerstone Hospice.

Arrangements have been entrusted to Baldwin Brothers A Funeral and Cremation society.

    We were most saddened to hear of Roland's passing. It was our honor and pleasure to have met and worked with Roland on behalf of Cambridge C in Florida. Margie and I also loved sharing our friendship with Roland and Beulah. We extend our deepest condolences to Beulah and Roland's family.

    Uncle Roly had a wonderful hearty laugh and sense of humor. I often remember the extra kindness and hospitality that both he and Aunt Muriel showed to my friend Mike and I many years ago on a visit to Fort Lauderdale. But my favorite memory of Uncle Roly was when I was young and the day I "helped" him work in his little front garden in California. It was a joy, and he made me feel valued more than he could know. My prayers, and my sincere condolences to Beulah, my cousins, and their families.
