My deepest condolences to the Zwirek family. He was my track and basketball coach from 1960 to 1964 at Wyoming High and was such a great mentor. I only regret that I didn’t keep in touch over the years. RIP coacH , you will never be forgotten.

Great man who had a tremendous impact on my life. I was privileged to have played for him, and blessed to have known him. I find myself quoting him often. My thoughts and prayers are with the Zwirek family.
