Vale Capt Merv Hazell

Members, I regret to advise that Our fellow Member & Mate, Merv Hazell  passed

away this afternoon 30th Nov 2021.

May he Rest in Peace.  

In a further message Branch Secretary Tony Wadeson added:

Merv had been fighting a battle with Cancer for a few years. He has still been attending

meetings and services despite being quite ill. His wife Kay has been by his side fighting

the battle with him all the way. She has been truly marvelous. 

Member Mick James called on him at the nursing home on the Friday prior to his

passing. Merv recognised Mick & showed he was pleased to see him although he

had difficulty communicating.

Mick again visited Merv on Sunday 28th Nov.
Mick continues,”Kay phoned me on Monday night 29th Nov to advise that Merv
had deteriorated markedly that day. She then phoned gain on Tuesday to say
he had passed.”
