Robert "Bob" Mazzuca

Mr. Mazzuca is a former Scout from San Juan Bautista, earning the Rank of Eagle Scout in Troop 28 (now 428) in 1964.  During his scouting youth, he attended Camp Pico Blanco for 2 summers and later served on the Pico Blanco summer camp in 1964 and 1965.  During his time with the Monterey Bay Area Council Mr. Mazzuca achieved the Brotherhood Honor as a member of Esselen Lodge. 

From an interview in Scouting Magazine, October 2007
 

Scouting: How did you decide on Scouting as a career?

Mazzuca: I was on camp staff the summer before starting college, and that’s when I decided I wanted to do this for a living.

The camp director, Bill Lidderdale, was also a district executive in the Monterey Bay Area Council. Next to my father, I just worshiped this guy. He was my hero. He told me about professional Scouting and said he thought I would do a good job.

So here was a person that I really admired telling me that I was good enough to do what he did for a living. That was all it took, and in 1971 I started this adventure in Modesto, Calif.

(Note:  Bill Lidderdale was the Esselen Lodge Staff Adviser and Gary Roberts'  brother.)
