David James Hayzer

February 17, 1952 — October 25, 2022

David Hazyer was born in London England in 1952, the eldest of 3 brothers (David, Brian, and Geoffrey). His father, Sydney Henry Hayzer, was an RAF Mosquito Crew Chief during WWII and instilled in him a love of learning, aviation, and art. David’s mother, Marjorie, also served with the RAF during WWII, working at Bletchley Park as a teletype operator on the famous computer project. David’s love of learning led to a PhD in microbiology from Queen Mary College in London, post-doctorate research at Sheffield University, the University of Geneva, the ETH in Zurich, and Rockefeller University in New York. Later, David moved to Atlanta, where he conducted research at Emory University in the cardiology department. In Atlanta in 1992, David met and married Judith Kramer, a professional pilot and pioneer former Air Force pilot. David, who shared Judy’s love of aviation, earned a private pilot’s license. David also earned a JD from Georgia State Law School and practiced intellectual property law. David and Judy loved to travel the world and enjoyed cooking and eating world foods. David appreciated art of all types, and was an excellent amateur photographer and sketch artist, who particularly enjoyed taking photos of his European travels. David is survived by his brothers and his nieces and nephews Claire, Mark, Eve, and Victoria, in England. David is also survived by his loving wife Judy, and their two dogs Gus and Schatzi.
