Nathan, Kenny and I both know the pain of losing our fathers, and your dad, like ours, was such a fine man. We have such fond memories of him at times when we were together with all of you at Sandy,s and Bill’s and also at your home for BIll’s birthday party last year. So much can change in a year, but you have wonderful memories that you’ll cherish forever and the knowledge that what is good in you came from your parents. We love you.Kenny, Mary Lou, Ken, and Kristin
Ray was a nice and caring hardworking guy that would make you laugh and was fun to talk to and would help you when you needed something. ” A Very Nice Man” and a good friend will be sadly missed.
Dear Mazur family, Please know that Greg and I share in your sorrow today. Your husband, father, and grandfather was the epitome of a loving, Christian man. We will always remember his friendly nature, warm smile, and ability to make anyone comfortable and welcomed in his presence. As you celebrate his life in the next few days, please know that all the wonderful qualities that Ray had are so evident in each of his children. And in this way he will continue to influence his grandchildren who are with you today and the precious one that will soon join you. We love you and wish we could be in Weirton to express our sympathy in person. Fay Stump

You have my deepest sympathy on your loss. Know of my prayers in your time of grief!
Ray was a wonderful man, and I have really missed him since he quit golfing at P.V.. I don’t think I have ever met a nicer man: gentle,humorous,loving,caring. None of us will ever forget his little rack of six clubs that he could do so much with, and his yellow golf balls (Mazur lasers). When I first joined at P.V. he, Louie Pete, Louie Muscaro, and my dad played pinnacle for $1 before the skin games. Now the gang is together for pinnacle in heaven.
Your family is in our thoughts and you have our deepest sympathy during this time of great loss.
To the Ray Mazur family: I had the opportunity to meet,know and become friends with Ray when he joined Weirton Steel’s Information Systems Department. He was always kind and caring and it was a pleasure to have known him and also his passion for the game of chess. Deepest respect,sympathy and prayers to his family, sincerely…..Mark Goddard Chester, WV.

Dear Mazur Family, Our family was very saddened to hear of your great loss! Working with Ray, as well as having him for a neighbor for many years, enables me to say with conviction that Ray was among the unsung heroes that form the foundation of this country. Men like Ray, who serve their country, who work hard to raise and provide for their families, who work to provide opportunities for their children, men who put others first – we need more Ray’s. We will keep you in our prayers. Bob,Alicia,Aaron,Lindsey Dawson
