Fr. Zwaska, With time the memories begin to fade. But not the memory I have of the huge smile you greeted each student with as we entered the classroom. Your compassion and friendliness made learning so much easier and enjoyable. You were perfectly suited to be a high school teacher. Still appreciating you're presence....

Pax et Bonum, Fr. Zwaska. You were my mentor and a man of kindness and above all instrumental in my love of the arts and most importantly...learning to love learning. Requiescat in pace.

Victor may you rest in peace after such a long life of service to the church. The students of De Sales Seminary thank you for your always present friendship in and out of the classroom through the 1960's when you taught us in religion class. I still remember vividly your discussion of Papal encyclicals especially Pacem In Terris during our religion class my Junior year at De Sales seminary in 1968-69. Thank you for that great high school education.
