He was born in Buffalo, N.Y. on July 26, 1925, to Fred and Mary Francis (Carter) Hazelwood. He lived there until 1938 when he moved to Rochester, N.Y. In 1940, his family moved to Washington, DC, settled in Chevy Chase, Md. and Fred graduated from Woodrow Wilson High School in 1943.

He enrolled in Penn State College in June 1943 and enlisted in the U.S. Army in July, 1943. He served for three years in the 87th Infantry Division (Golden Acorn division), 345th Infantry Regiment, Headquarters Company. He was awarded the Bronze Star.

He returned to Penn State and graduated in 1949 from the School of Agriculture. While in Penn State he was an active member of the Phi Delta Theta fraternity. In addition to his love of singing Fred played the trombone in three different bands during his early adult years, the army band, the Penn State Blue Band and the Redskins Band.
