Obituary for Nicholas Hazen

Nicholas Hazen
Nicholas Hazen (Nick) 88, passed away peacefully on Friday, April 14, 2017 in Houston, Texas. Born June 23, 1928 in Whitesburg, Kentucky to Charles and Elizabeth Hazen, Nick lettered in baseball and basketball at Fleming-Neon High School and proudly served his country in the Korean War as a staff sergeant in the Air Force Military Police. He served from 1950 to 1954, whereupon he was honorably discharged and returned to his family home in Neon, Kentucky to begin working in his parent’s department store business.

Within the first few years of returning home, Nick met his future wife, Barbara Joan Morris, whom he married on July 23, 1959. Nick continued working in the family business during this time and had two sons, Charles and Phillip, in 1960 and 1963.

The family later moved to Lexington, Kentucky where Nick went into the restaurant business, a passion he pursued for the next 40+ years, owning and operating many restaurants with different styles and cuisines. During this period, Nick and Barbara gave birth to their third son, Anthony, in 1975.

In 1998, Nick and Barbara moved to Houston to be near their three sons and their growing families. It was there that the restaurant bug bit Nick again and he and Barbara opened and operated Café Nicholas in the Houston Galleria until 2002 when they retired fully.

Nick always loved to work. He enjoyed the restaurant business and thrived on engaging and bantering with his customers. When he was not at work, Nick loved to cook, chew cigars, grow vegetables in his garden and spend time with his family. He was very close with his brothers, Nasser and Fred, and his sister, Rose.

Mr. Hazen is survived by his wife Barbara, three sons and daughters in law and six grandchildren.

Services will be held at Woodlawn Funeral Home and Cemetery, 1101 Antione Drive, Houston, Texas 77055 on Tuesday April 18, beginning with visitation at 11:30 AM and the graveside service and burial at 1:00 PM.
