Raymond Hazelip, gospel preacher and retired pharmacist, passed away on Saturday, Nov. 6, 1982, after an illness of several months. Raymond was born on Jan. 17, 1917, in the Asphalt community in Edmonson County, Ky. He was a graduate of Western Kentucky University, Bowling Green, Ky., and the University of Kentucky in Lexington, Ky. He owned and operated the Prescription Center and Bowling Green Surgical Supply for 25 years. At the time of his death, he owned the Westland Drugs in Bowling Green.

Raymond will be remembered in the Bowling Green and Warren County area as being an outstanding gospel preacher and servant of God. He gave freely of his talents to the cause of Christ in this area. Many congregations of the Lords people are indebted to him in building them up in the Lord. Some of those congregations are strong and self-supporting today because of the untiring work Raymond did while serving as their minister. Much of this work was done without cost while contributing of his own means to support works that involved all the congregation. He was unselfish in his dedication to the Lord and to the Lords work.

Funeral services were conducted by Ray Frizell, Jr., on Tuesday Nov. 9th at Hardy & Son Funeral Chapel, Bowling Green, Ky., with burial in Fairview Cemetery. A large crowd of loved ones, brethren, and friends attended the service.

He is survived by his wife, Mrs. Merthel Hazelip; one daughter, Linda Simmons; four sisters, Mrs. Edna Lewis, Brownsville, Ky., Mrs. Ruth Duvall, Louisville, Ky., Mrs. Charlotte Willison, Cleveland, Ohio, Mrs. Eva Douglas, Fern Creek, Ky.; three brothers, Lawrence Hazelip, Pasadena, Texas, Woodrow Hazelip, Brownsville, Ky., and Harold Hazelip, Memphis, Tenn.
