Tyrone Hazlett passed away unexpectedly June 9th at home in West Warwick, Rhode Island. He was 60.

Originally from Meriden, CT, Ty was a graduate of Platt High School and entered a successful career in biomedical research. He continued his career and love of science when he moved to Rhode Island, and was awarded multiple patents for his work. He was devoted to his family, his love of science, Star Trek and the New England Patriots. He was well-known for his Patriots jersey collection, along with endless puns and dad jokes. Deeply thoughtful and empathetic, he was a wonderful poet and could always be counted on to make someone's day better.

He is survived by his mother, Alice Hazlett, two daughters, Rachael and Chrystal, four grandchildren, two brothers and three nieces.

A memorial service will be held on September 28th, 11:00 a.m., at St. Joseph's Church in Meriden, to be followed by internment of ashes at Sacred Heart Cemetery. Family and friends are then invited to join us in a celebration of Ty's life at Napoli Pizza in Wallingford, CT.
