Charles F. Hazelwood Jr. ’44

Published in Feb. 15, 2006, issue

"Pete" Hazelwood died Aug. 8, 2005, near his home and family cabin in Weyauwega, Wis. He had a love of life in everything he found.

Pete prepped at Scarsdale (N.Y.) High School. At Princeton, he played freshman golf and was manager of varsity track and a member of Tiger Inn. He won honors in his engineering courses all three years, graduating in 1943. He served 29 months as a Navy radar officer at MIT, before earning a master's degree at Harvard Business School.

After 16 years with General Electric and International Paper, working with employees on problem-solving, Pete founded his own consulting firm, Concept Associates, which provided a number of Fortune 100 companies with seminars and courses. He loved to teach and help others, and worked with youth, local churches, and civic organizations such as the Wisconsin lake associations. He loved details and "rational planning," and being "a consummate gentleman."

Pete's wife of 50 years, Marilyn, died in 1998, and their first son, Charles F. "Pete" Hazelwood III, died in July. Pete is survived by his second son, Harry W. "Hap" Hazel-wood; two brothers, Robert and John; 10 grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren. We extend our sincere condolences to all.
