William "Bill" Mazur, age 72 of Sparta, NC and formerly of Lantana, FL and Fairborn, OH; passed away Thursday, January 13th, 2022 at Alleghany Health in Sparta, NC.
Bill was born January 24th, 1949 in Braddock, PA to the late William Joseph Mazur and Pauline Culina Mazur.
Bill began his lifetime career in the construction industry as a Master Carpenter, learning his craft in the Pittsburgh area, near his hometown of Trafford, PA.
After spending many years in the private sector of residential and commercial construction, Bill served the last 25 years of his professional career in the public sector as Building Inspector for the cities of Coral Springs, FL and Fairborn, OH. He retired as Chief Building Official for the City of Fairborn in 2009.
Bill loved people - he never knew a stranger - He was always willing to lend a helping hand to anyone, anywhere, anytime. He had been a long time volunteer with the Interfaith Hospitality Network in Ohio and a lifelong blood and platelet donor. A member of Grace Community Church in Sparta, NC.
He possessed a “boy wonder” quality; he loved to explore, have an adventure, there was a newness to each day! Bill embraced all of Gods splendor and the outdoors. He found wonder in the tiniest seashell.
There was no such word as retired in his vocabulary. He was always hard working and self motivated. Bill was very strong, very virile and very much a mans man.
Bill was a devout Christian who walked his faith daily. He will remain the most genuine man I ever met and my Sweet Prince forever.
Bill’s hobbies included woodworking and crafting; often creating mementos as gifts for family and friends, vintage trucks and cars, antiques, motorcycles, long walks along the Florida beaches and in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Survivors include his wife and soulmate, Diane and their beloved dog Kip of the home; a devoted daughter, Ashley Mazur Coe and husband Michael of San Tan Valley, AZ; a grandson, Marcus Asher; a granddaughter, Harper Faith; two sisters: Barbara Courchesne and husband Yves of Boca Raton, FL, Sandra Schulz and husband John of Boynton Beach, FL; and a favorite aunt Elizabeth Micic of Greensburg, PA; as well as several nieces, nephews, extended family members and friends.
A memorial service to celebrate the life of Bill will be held at 11:00 am, April 30th, 2022 at Grace Community Church at 342 Macedonia Church Road, Sparta, NC 28675 with Pastor Joel Stamper officiating. A reception will immediately follow at the church.
