Group Honors Bob Marzulli


Bob “Marz” Marzulli’s legacy will be honored as one of five to be inducted into the Idaho State Athletic Hall of Fame this year.

Dr. James Lynn, the chairman of the committee that oversees the hall of fame, said Mr. Marzulli was chosen because of his commitment to his community.

“We always choose people like Mr. Marzulli,” Dr. Lynn said. “Someone that does everything in town. I personally played football against him many years ago. He was quite a guy.”

He was born in Spokane in 1933 but grew up in Calder, graduating from St. Maries High School in 1952. Mr. Marzulli poured his life into the St. Maries community spending his time teaching, coaching and volunteering in various projects. He died Nov. 15, 2011.

The Idaho State Athletic Hall of Fame was founded more than 50 years ago and honors athletes, coaches and supporters from across the state who are nominated for exceptional qualities.

Mr. Marzulli will join another local man, Mitch Santos, as an honoree. Mr. Santos was inducted in 2004.

The induction will take place in conjunction with the North Idaho sports banquet in April. Dr. Lynn hopes that close friends will step forward to represent him at the presentation.

“It would be great if we could get a group of people to come over and show support for his induction and represent him at the ceremony,” he said.

Anyone interested in participating in and attending the event and/or representing Mr. Marzulli should contact Dr. Lynn at (208) 651-3240.
