Ronald Preston Hazen, 42, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, September 28, 2021. He is survived by his loving and devoted parents, Robert and Karen Hazen. He is also survived by his brother, Robert Hazen and his wife Dessie; her sister Stacey Bosco and her husband Shawn; and his beloved nieces and nephews, Mykaila, Jacob and Morgan Bosco, and Robert III and Ryan Hazen. Ron enjoyed his youth like no other, whether he was busy fishing, camping or playing sports. Those who knew Ron knew that no matter what he did, he loved the most when he was surrounded by those he loved, his family and friends. He often had a heartwarming story to tell, or a fond memory to share from the “good old days.” Ron could light up a room with his smile. He always found a way to connect with others and he had a knack for uplifting people. Graduating from the class of Granby Memorial High School in 1997, Ron attended the Porter and Chester Institute to develop his interest in computers. He spent a number of years working as an IT professional, most notably with Travelers Insurance in Hartford, Connecticut, where he reached the Senior Technician level. More recently he worked in the family business alongside his father. No matter where life took him, Ron had a knack for quickly mastering new challenges, taking care of his job, and always finding a way to leave his mark. He would see things in a way that others couldn’t, something he was greatly admired for. Ron was a very generous person and didn’t have a bad bone in his body. He had many close friends, most notably his longtime canine mate Stoopy. Ron will be sadly missed for his kind heart and generous spirit. Through all of his trials and struggles, he always had all of our love. Ron, when you left you took a piece of us all with you, but rest assured we will meet again. With all our love, your family. The services were private for the family.
