Grebil, who is now chief of the Scotts Valley Fire District in Santa Cruz County, identified those in the photo.
The only person on C Shift missing from the photo was Capt. Bill Robinson. The truck was Snorkel 1, the 1969 Crown/Pitman 85-foot elevated platform, Grebil reported. The photo was taken in 1983 or 1984, he said.
Also identifying those in the photo were Grebil’s mother, Evelie Grebil of Tracy; Cynthia Van Hagen San Julian of Tracy, whose father was the late Ron Van Hagen; and Van Hagen’s widow, Jacqueline.
Today’s mystery photo, above right shows a Tracy Boy Scout who had just become an Eagle Scout. What is his name, when was the photo taken, and what is he doing these days?
