Obituary

Thaddeus J. “Ted” Mazur, a longtime resident of Milton, Florida, passed away on Saturday, June 29, 2019.

A native of Detroit, Michigan, Ted was preceded in death by his wife and mother of his children, Doris M Mazur; and is survived by their daughters, Nancy Casazza, of Melbourne Beach, Florida, and Judy Lysaght, of Richmond, Virginia; his granddaughter, Madison L. Lysaght, of Gainesville, Florida, and countless friends and family that adored him.

Growing up in Detroit, Ted was the youngest of eight children and used to work in his dad’s shoe shop before joining the Civilian Conservation Corps in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan to help build National Parks while providing for his family. Ted joined the Army Air Corps when he was 18 and became a flight engineer for the 570th, B-17 squadron assigned to the 8th Air Force, 390th Bomb Group out of Framlingham, England in WWII. Oh, the stories he told of those days! He flew 35 missions before returning home to Detroit, MI where he applied for and joined the Detroit police department. He worked is his way up to detective on the vice squad and received numerous commendations and medals. It was on the police force where Ted met Doris. They quickly fell in love and moved to Milton, Florida. After several construction jobs, Ted joined Cyanamid, now Cytec, as a materials engineer. He was a wonderful father and husband. He loved to play golf and each night would go to the city park to play basketball with the high school kids after dinner. He also umpired for the ball clubs at the Milton City Park. Ted was beloved by all who knew him and will be sorely missed. God speed dad, you are always in our hearts!

A Graveside Service, with Military Honors, will be held at 1:00 p.m. CST, Wednesday, July 3, 2019, at Barrancas National Cemetery, onboard Pensacola Naval Air Station, with Lewis Funeral Home of Milton directing.

I will miss your smile,and the good morning hugs. I will miss the crackers you would put in my pockets so I wouldn't get hungry . I will miss ours and your compliments . My days will definitely be a lot duller but I know that you're not hurting anymore and that gives me much comfort. Until we meet again I know you will look out for me from above . With love, Carrie Mercer
