Obituary

Gary Mazet passed away with his family by his side on Wednesday, March 03, 2021 at Tidal Health Peninsula Regional in Salisbury, Maryland. He was 71 years old.

Mr. Mazet was born September 10, 1949 in Plainfield, New Jersey to the late Anthony and Pauline (Battoni) Mazet. Gary grew up and lived in Plainfield for many years. In 1985, he and his wife Dale settled in East Amwell, NJ, where they started a family and called home for over 30 years. To be closer to their son and his family, Gary and Dale relocated in 2017 to Salisbury, MD.

Gary honorably served from 1968 to 1974 in the US Army during the Vietnam Era; having earned the rank of Sergeant . In his younger years, he and his family co-owned B&G Speed Shop in South Plainfield and Suburban Cycle Center in Somerville. He then continued his career as an auto center Manager at Sears in New Brunswick NJ. Shortly before relocating to East Amwell, he started G. Mazet Trucking, which he owned and managed for many years. Gary was an exceptional self-taught mechanic. He loved classic cars; from working on them as young as 11 years old and going to car shows with his family and friends. Gary’s second home was his shore house in Little Egg Harbor where he enjoyed fishing, clamming and cooking for his family and friends. He developed along with his Uncle Neil a secret way to find more clams than anyone knew what to do with. Gary was an amazing cook, especially recipes like homemade meatballs, sauce, torte, and Manicotti that were passed down from his mother. Most of all, Gary loved his friends and family, especially his grandson Gary Thomas. He was a devoted husband, a loving and proud dad, caring brother, affectionate Pop-Pop and a dear friend; he will be profoundly missed by so many.

He is survived by his loving wife Dale Mazet of Salisbury, MD; his son, Gary A. Mazet and his wife Paula of Berlin, MD; his brothers, Anthony Mazet and his wife Sharon of South Plainfield and Robert Mazet and his wife Jean of Green Brook. He is also survived by his nephews and nieces, Gary and Shirly Mazet, Anthony Mazet and Thomas Mazet, Kathleen Schmitt; his best buddy and grandson Gary Thomas Mazet, dogs, Rachel, Abby, Jett and Penny and a host of cousins, extended family and friends.

To the Mazet family: I am so, so sorry to hear of your loss. I have fond memories of Mr. Mazet's sense of humor and his big personality. I remember spending afternoons after school hanging out at the Mazet's and spending time with meemaw and the whole family, playing touch football and basketball. So much fun. May he rest in peace.
