Gary Mazey, 82, passed away on May 29, 2023 at Elmwood Skilled Nursing Facility. Born in Perrysburg, OH, he was the eldest son of the late Virgil and Gladys Mazey (Britten). Gary was preceded in death by brother James (Jacque) Mazey. Four siblings survive: Patricia (Roger) Smith, Susan Hudson, Janice (Dave) Foulke, and Rick (Lois) Mazey.

He led the construction and supervision of several multi-million-dollar commercial projects during his tenure as a tradesman.
