Sebastian Mazza “Sugar”, 90, of Akron passed away peacefully on September 2, 2017. He was born on June 15, 1927 to the late Peter and Josephine (DiSalvo) Mazza.

Sebastian left high school to join the Navy in 1943 and faithfully served his country during WWII. Upon his return in 1945 he graduated from Akron High School. Sugar married  Shirley Mietz in 1948.

Those who knew Sugar knew how devoted he was to Shirley and how much he loved the water. He and Shirley would often take little trips to Olcott Beach and the Wilson Boat House. Myrtle Beach was his favorite place to travel . He especially loved doing yard work and never missed an opportunity to watch his grandsons playing sports.
