    Dr. Zuber was an Eagle Scout who later served as the scoutmaster of Troop 128 in Henrietta. He has turned his attention to a higher calling. He is a student of deaconship at St. Bernard’s School of Theology and Ministry in Pittsford.

    The Henrietta Chamber of Commerce honored Dr. Zuber with its Citizen of the Year award in 1989, and he has continued to better his community since that time.

    He and his wife, Audrey, have two children and four grandchildren. Dr. Zuber’s father, Richard, nominated his son for the Hall of Fame, saying: I have watched him serve his community to make it better for his family and the community as a whole. Henrietta is a part of his heart and soul.
