    I am sure a lot of members from the USA and in Canada and almost all of Ontario knew or have heard of Gorden Hazlett through his association with Old Autos News Paper and the 3 books he has written about Canada and the automobile. He was a fixture and wealth of infomation at most Ontario shows and swap meets. Gord was in his 94 year and lived life the way he wanted to. You have left an impression. R.I.P. Gord HAZLETT.

    Rest in Peace Gord. Sad news seems to be travelling around this place.

    Thank you for passing the news along, I don't get Old Autos any more so I may not have heard.

    A true story teller. That gentleman has been to more places and seen more cars than any of us ever will. A Canadian icon..........RIP

    I just got home from Gord's funeral service. It was very well attended and Gord's influence in the old car community was well represented, as was his loving family. Gord was a friend and more to everyone he met and I consider myself lucky to have known him. He will definitely be missed, and his jokes and stories will be remembered for a long time to come.
    What an amazing human being. R.I.P. Gorden Hazlett.

    Thanks for the information on attendance at the Funeral Service, I could not attend due to a prior doctors appointment, I am glad his friends and supporters did not let him down in this time of rememberance. Larry

    He was quite the character. He always had a great car story to tell at our club meetings. Fortunately many of his "old auto" stories were written down in his three books (and of course the Old Autos magazine). He will not be forgotten too easily.
