July 16, 1944 ~ September 10, 2017
Our beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend passed away peacefully at home on Sunday, September 10, 2017.
He was born in Brigham City, Utah, July 16, 1944, to Lee Oliver Hazeldine and Mary Neilsen. He attended schools in both Brigham and Bountiful before graduating from Davis High School.
In 1965, he married his high school sweetheart and love of his life, Rosalie Parker. They have one son, four granddaughters, and two great-grandchildren.
James followed in his father's footsteps and worked for the telephone company where he helped develop the Blue Stakes Call Line. After 23 years of loyal service, James retired as supervisor of buried cable and fiber optics. He then began a second, 10 year career as building maintenance for Saint Marks Gardens in Kaysville, Ogden, and Brigham.
James had a special love for fishing and annual trips to Disneyland with his family. He is remembered as a loving family man, avid traveler, and an enthusiast of fine arts, and music. James had a strong testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ and held many church positions. He was especially proud of his position of activities coordinator, and working at the mill.
He is survived by his wife, Rosalie; son, Chad; grandchildren: Chantelle (Lindy Scheeler), Tiffany (Jeremy Vnuk), Jennifer Hazeldine, Jessica Hazeldine; brothers, Thomas Lee Hazeldine, and Michael Lynn Hazeldine (Marny); nephews: Brian, Zachary, Riley, Thomas; and great-grandchildren, Avy and Jackson James.
