The Passing of Dominick Azzara

The VirtualBoxwell team is sad to announce the passing of Dominick Azzara. Dominick was an integral part of the early days of CubWorld. He joined the staff at CubWorld around 2000, becoming Camp Commissioner in 2001. He stayed in this position for a few years before becoming CubWorld Program Director in 2004, a role he served in through 2008. Dominick was brought to Boxwell by way of his sons’ involvement, but also the encouragement of Dutch Mann. He camped at CubWorld its very first summers of existence and helped developed the Cub Program, which at that time involved curriculum incorporating the play areas as part of the instruction. Dominick’s work at Boxwell brought his sons, Luke and Jonathan, to the CubWorld Staff as well. He was a founding member of the Boxwell Staff Alumni Association.

Of course, Dominick’s connection to Scouting was backward from many, arriving on staff much later in life. Born in 1947 in NY, the Eagle Scout was drafted in 1965 and served in the US Army for 5 years. Upon leaving the military, he settled in Clarksville and attended Austin Peay, eventually marrying in 1977. The couple went on to have three children, all sons. Dominick eventually worked for the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Clarksville and continued his efforts there for over 20 years. Dominick passed at the age 76, leaving behind his wife Regina and his three sons, Nicholas, Jonathan, and Luke.

Dominick’s official obituary and funeral information may be found here: Services will be held at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church Thursday morning at 11am.
