John G. Mazza, 90, went home to be with the Lord on February 2018. He was born in Stamford on February 24, 1927 to the late Ernest and Catherine Mazza.
John proudly served his country in the U.S. Navy. John was a former, longtime employee of the Stamford Board of Education Maintenance Division. He was a carpenter by trade. Making people laugh was his greatest pleasure. He loved his family and was so proud to meet his two great-grandsons.
