Oswald Leon Hazlewood, also known as "Bage," was born
on February 16, 1933 in Draxhall, Barbados to the late Cora
and Leon Atwell. He was the only boy and the last of his
parents' three children.
He attended the St. Lukes Elementary School, and then
went on to the Senior High School. After graduation from
high school he went to work for the Barbados Advocate and
learned his trade as a printer.
His skills as a printer brought him to St. Thomas in 1960 on
a contract to work for the Daily News at its former location on
Back Street. After working with the Daily News for a number
of years he made a career change and began working at the
West Indian Company. His final and most rewarding career
change came in 1971, when he began to work in the Airline
Industry. He worked for Prinair, Pan Am and most recently
Lat, where he worked until illness forced him to stop.
Oswald met his wife LuLe in 1960 and later married in 1963.
Their union produced four children, Denise, Trevor, Marvon
and Craig.
Oswald Hazlewood, husband, father and grandfather fought
a brave and courageous battle for the past ten months. He was
steadfast in his belief that he would overcome his illness and
kept up the fight to the end.
Rest in peace, the battle is over.

Sleep on beloved, sleep, and take thy rest;
Lay down thy head upon thy Savior's breast,
We love thee well, but Jesus loves thee best.
We have watched you suffer in silence for these past months, often
wondering how we could ease your pain.
You were a man of few words, never complaining or perhaps not
wanting to worry us. Your reply to our daily question of how you were
doing was, I am fine. We know you were not fine and often wondered
just what was going on in you mind. But we know this was your way.
We love you and we will miss you, but we are happy that you will no
longer have to suffer. Rest in peace dear husband, father and grandfa-
ther. Bye until we meet again.
Luletta Hazlewood and children
Denise, Everette, Trevor, Marvon and Craig
Bage ... You were ever ready to help and your ever present humor
always brought a smile. Lest we forget: our life is but the weaving
between our God and us. We only choose the colors. He weaveth steadily.
Sometimes he weaveth sorrow and we in foolish pride, forget He sees the
upper and we the under side. Rest in peace.
Love Lynette
Bage ... We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from
the body, and to be present with the Lord. Rest in peace until we meet
again. II Corinthians 5-18
Debbie, Velma, Ruthlyn, Hilton, Lemuel,
Dale, Gregory and Joseph Ryan, Ex Sunaire Express Staff

Bage ... You are gone but not forgotten. We will always remember
you and cherish your warm personality. You have done your work here
on earth and now rest in peace. "Alleluia! The strife is o'er, the battle
done, the victory of life is won. The song of triumph has begun. Alle-
Dufferin Culpepper

Your quiet disposition was enchanting, your love of life captivating.
Knowing you and working with you was a delight. May you rest in the
hands of our Heavenly Father.

I have known "Bage" for over 20 years, both as my colleague and as
my friend. Whenever I remember all those years at LIAT that we worked
together... the companionship we shared... the jokes ... the laughter..
. I will remember my friend. His memory will live on to the end. Rest in
peace, my friend Bage.
Miguel Aponte

Perhaps you sent a lovely card,
or sat quietly in a chair.
Perhaps you sent afloral piece,
if so, we saw it there.
Perhaps you spoke the kindest words,
as any friend could say.
Perhaps you were not there at all,
Just thought of us that day.
Whatever you did to console our hearts,
We thank you so much, whatever the part.

Dn Jlppreciation

CWe are deeply grateful to the many persons
who have been so supportive during the long life, illness,
death and burial of our father.
Dn keeping with his wishes and life-style,
following the funeral the immediate family will retire quietly

r reflection and meditation.
The Hazelwood Family
