Robert (Bob) Hazlett of Peculiar, MO passed away on March 20, 2017. Visitation will be Saturday, March 25 from 1:00-2:00 pm with funeral service at 2:00 pm at Floral Hills Funeral Home. Burial will follow in Floral Hills Memorial Gardens.

Bob was born on March 1, 1954 in Independence, MO. He was a quiet man who loved to read. He grew up in South Kansas City, MO and graduated from Ruskin High School. He worked a short time at a local restaurant, but that was just not his cup of tea so he started working at UMKC in the laboratory, taking care of the animals.

He enjoyed animals, as he had quite a variety, but his favorite was cats. He spent his adult life in Peculiar, MO on his modest piece of land where he could read, work outside, and enjoy nature.

Bob was preceded in death by his father, Lowell Arlie Hazlett. He is survived by his mother, Dorothy Hazlett of Kansas City, MO, sister Linda Hamilton of Independence, nephew Jeremy Hamilton of Independence, niece Jessica Wilson of North Kansas City, MO and great-nephew Stephen Lacy of Liberty, MO.

He was a loving son and will be missed.
