Fred Mazzucca passed away peacefully on Wednesday, November 16, 2022 at the age of 91. Born in Red Bank, Fred graduated from Red Bank Regional High School, where he was an outstanding baseball and basketball player and ultimately chose the Jersey shore to be his lifetime home.
Fred graduated from Muhlenberg College in 1952 earning three varsity letters in baseball. After his service in the Army, he played against Whitey Ford and singled off him in his first at bat. When asked how he did on his second at bat, he laughed that Whitey struck him out on three pitches!
While stationed in Chicago during his service, Fred met Donna who would become his wife. They married and settled in Little Silver where Fred pursued his career in accounting and enjoyed being a CPA for over fifty years.
