Announcement of the Passing of Mazzella Companies’ Bill Franz

It is with a very heavy heart that we announce the passing of longtime Mazzella Companies’ employee Bill Franz, 61, of Medina, Ohio.

Bill was an integral part of the company’s success and spent 38 years in Cleveland working in a variety of different roles—most recently as the Vice President of Marketing. Bill was a beloved colleague and a very dear friend to many in the lifting and rigging industry. He is a former Board Member and President of Associated Wire Rope Fabricators (AWRF).

Bill will be remembered by family, friends, and co-workers for his love of traveling, music, sports, and enjoying the company of his loved ones. Bill is survived by his wife Lynn, his daughter Ashley, his daughter Amanda, his son Adam (Regional Sales Manager, Mazzella Companies), and his cherished grandchildren Braydon, Wilhelm, Cora, Maximus, and Colton.
