TO THE ENTIRE MAZUR FAMILY PLS ACCEPT OUR DEEPEST SYMPATHY ON CHUCKS PASSING GREW UP WITH THE ENTIRE FAMILY . WE LIVED BEHIND THE SLOVAK HALL IN NATRONA MAY HE REST IN PEACE AND MAY THE ANGELS LEAD HIM INTO PARADISE
From the Wall family. Our deepest sympathies to all of you as we join you in mourning the loss of a great man in Chuck. May God hold you in the palm of his hand as you grieve. Chuck brought so much joy to all those he touched, both young and older. He did what we should all aspire to do…he made the world a better place than how he found it. I know that Chuck is now realizing Gods great promise of eternal life in the Kingdom of Heaven. Truly a life well lived. May you Rest In Peace
Others have stated so well, Chuck’s contributions to faith, family and to the community will long outlive all of us. IFPAA could well have been Chuck’s middle name!! So much dedication for so many years. May God raise you up in the palm of his hand!
RIP, Chuck. It was a pleasure and an honor to know you and work with you for many years
Dedicated is the word that rings in my head when it comes to Chuck. I was fortunate to learn much from him, and unfortunate to have to try and fill his shoes. He was a tireless leader who always cared for EVERY kid that was part of IFPAA and never cared about thanks or accolades.
We’ve never heard a bad word about Chuck. We are indebted to him for the improvements he made in girls athletics. His quiet, competent way changed many lives for the better. You will be missed.
So sorry to hear about Chuck’s passing. I enjoyed serving on the Woodlands Foundation board with him and am grateful for his hard work to ensure the success of the organization. Sending sincere sympathy to Chuck’s family.
Condolences Sue, Jeff, and the Mazur family. I’m sincerely grateful to have had Mr. Mazur as a coach….teaching us integrity as well as the game!
I am sorry I won’t be able to attend any funeral arrangements as we will be on vacation, but I do want to extend my deepest sympathy to the family. I really enjoyed working with Chuck in girls softball. He was honest and I could always depend on him. As we both had children involved in school activities, we would see Agnes and him
at these. Mike and seemed to run into Chuck and Fran many events we attended. Chuck will surely be missed by his family and many friends.
So many great memories of Chuck in our IFPAA days. Most instrumental in getting the organization in good financial standing and on firm footing. Helped girls softball going from an afterthought to having a major identity. Most instrumental in Blueberry Park growing from a run down, neglected wasteland to a major youth sports complex and playground. I was proud to help Coach with him and he always had both boys and girls interests in mind. A First Class Gentleman. RIP and God Bless
