4/25/2021 11:03 PM It's quite difficult to decipher, I see on the Mount of Olives website that they are also missing some text.

Firstly here is the Hebrew transcript of the text, which includes more than what appears on the mentioned website (still missing 1 and 1/2 lines).

הרה"ח המופלא הישיש זקן ושבע ימים מוה"ר בצלאל חזן בהרב ר' יוסף ז"ל ששרת בקודש יותר מששים שנה ... וזיכה את הרבים ובשנת תרל"ג מוצש"ק כד אדר נפטר לעולמו תנצב"ה


Translation:
The wonderful elderly chassid old and satiated with days R' Bezalel Chazan [the cantor] son of Rabbi Yosef who served in the Holy service for more than sixty years ... and granted the public and in the year 5633 on Saturday night 24 of Adar he left for his eternal world may his soul be bound in the bond of everlasting life
