In memory: Herb Apuzzo

To all Scouters,

It is with great sadness that I share the news about Herb Apuzzo, he passed away Feb. 10th. Herb was a long time member of the Cahuenga District. He had been in declining health for a while now. He fell twice and was taken to the hospital with some signs of paralysis. After surgery, he apparently was still suffering from paralysis, he was on a respirator. It was decided to remove the respirator and he passed away 26 hours later.

Many of you may remember him as a long time Scoutmaster, for cooking at many Scout events, Camporee staff and training, just to list a few things he did in Scouting.

His wife, Judy, a Scouter's wife, Scout mom, then later an active member of the district in her own right and still later an employee of the council is in a home and is suffering from dementia. She is doing as well as can be expected.

The district heard the news about Herb last week at its monthly district meeting.

Yours in Scouting,

Kevin Bryan
