William Michael Mazzeo was born August 14th, 1944, in Brooklyn, New York and entered into eternal rest on November 6th, 2017 in Frisco, Texas. Bill was the oldest of three siblings, Marie and John born to Michael Frances and Mary (Manetta) Mazzeo. He grew up in New Hyde Park, New York and graduated from Sewanaka High School. He made money in the summers working at Jones Beach Pool. He later went on to achieve his Bachelors of Arts at Queens College. He joined the Army and was a Chaplain Assistant SP5 and was awarded the National Defense Service Medal of good conduct. He married the love of his life Barbara Jean Mazzeo on March 27th, 1971. They had a beautiful marriage of 46 years and two wonderful children together, Danielle Mazzeo Ingold and Justin Paul Mazzeo. “Brooklyn Bill” as he was fondly called worked for JCPenney as the senior buyer of women’s clothing. He was a lover of mafia movies, like the “Godfather” and a big fan of Marlin Brando and Robert DeNiro. He also enjoyed the music of Frank Sinatra, Jimmy Roselli, and the Beach Boys. True to his heritage, Bill loved everything Italian, especially the holidays and festivities. Willie was a great fan of all things sports, with hockey being his most beloved. He worked at Cowboy Stadium, American Airlines Center, and Allen Event Center. He also spent time working at the FC Dallas, Star and Rough Riders Stadium. His favorite pastimes were to be in his “cave” watching his 50’ TV and playing hockey or make-believe games with his grandchildren. He will be remembered for his favorite saying “To make a long story short” and “Listen to your coach” and signing every text message to his daughter “Love Dad”. William “Willie” Michael Mazzeo is preceded in death by his parents and survived by his loving wife, Barbara Jean Mazzeo, his daughter Danielle Mazzeo Ingold and his son Justin Paul Mazzeo as well as his son-in-law, Jason Ingold and two grandchildren who were the ultimate lights of his life, Gianna and Joe Ingold. Bill was loved while he was here with us on earth, and we will continue to love him through time and all eternity. Arrangements under the direction of Stonebriar Funeral Home, Frisco, TX.

For the times I worked him at FC Dallas Stadium in Frisco, he also was kind, knew what he was doing, and had most of the answers to questions. If he did not know the answer, he would make sure he would get it. I always enjoyed working with him.

Our deepest sympathy to all of Bills family. We really enjoyed working with Bill at the AAC and going to the Frisco Roughriders games just to see Bill and Tom and others we made good friends with. He always had a joke or story to tell. He would say now Ann, I don"t think I can tell this in 10 words or less as I always told him 10 words or less to hold my interest. He will be missed. You all have every right to be proud to be his family. He was a great guy to work with or just to be around. Donnie and I were so proud to call him friend

I worked with Bill at many of the same venues over the past 10 years. I will remember his smile and the many stories he told. They made the long day seem shorter. As stated in his obituary, I don't remember Bill ever telling a story about NYC without his phrase "To make a long story short". RIP my friend, you will always be with me.
