George R. Zambelli, Sr
Birth: Oct. 19, 1924
Death: Dec. 25, 2003
Allegheny County
Pennsylvania, USA

Acclaimed Fireworks Entertainer. He took over the family business, Zambelli Fireworks Internationale, in 1957 and was the president and owner of the company until his death. Considered an innovator in the industry, he was the first to introduce choreographed fireworks displays to the country. He also led the industry in incorporating pyrotechnic displays in more personal settings such as weddings and religious festivals rather than using them exclusively for major holiday celebrations. Founded in 1893, Zambelli Fireworks is the nation's largest fireworks manufacturer and produces more than 3,500 fireworks shows throughout the world each year. The company has done displays for every US President since and including John F. Kennedy. Zambelli's funeral service included a daylight fireworks display in his honor. Weakened by a ten year battle against cancer, he died of complications from the flu. (bio by: Melanie)
