Mitchell (Mickey) R. Maziarz, 83, of Ludlow, passed away on Tuesday, November 23, 2021 after a short illness. He is survived by his loving wife of 58 years, Joanne (Vigneault) Maziarz.
He was born in Ludlow, son of the late Mitchell and Julia (Wdowiak) Maziarz. Following his graduation from Ludlow High School, Mickey served proudly in the US Navy for 4 years. He went on to earn his Bachelor’s degree from Westfield State and his Master’s from Springfield College. He was a professional educator in the Springfield Public Schools for over 30 years as an adjustment counselor, concluding his career as a guidance counselor at Central High School.

Besides his wife he leaves a son, Mitchell M.

He was extremely proud of his 7 grandchildren; Amelia, Charles, Maxwell, Nathaniel, Caleb, Jack and Shaye. Mickey's legacy is reflected in his belief in the power of education that he instilled in his children and, subsequently, his grandchildren. He will be deeply missed by those who truly knew him.
