His birth name was Clarence Winfield Offer Jr. He was adopted by his paternal aunt and uncle, Fredrick and Elsie (Offer) Hazleton, and renamed Bert L. Hazelton. She was the sister of his biological father. His biological father, Clarence, became his favorite uncle. Bert did not find out he was adopted until his adoptive father's will was read.
