Hank was born in Youngstown Ohio to Anthony and Desolina Mastran on May 24, 1924. Hank
joined the Marines at the age of 17 after World War II started. He proudly served in combat in
Peleliu Palau, Southwest Pacific with the First Marine Division. After the war he attended Ohio
State University and graduated with a Bachelor Degree in Architecture in 1952. He accepted a
position with the Firestone Tire & Rubber Company where he met his wife of 62 years Patricia.
They were married in 1955 and had seven children. Hank became a member of the American
Institute of Architects in 1966, founded Mastran and Associates in 1979 and C.M. Building

watching birds, squirrels and deer in his back yard.
