Mr. C was by far the one teacher who had the greatest impact on me personally. Most people didn't know but he picked me up every morning on his way in to school. He believed in me before I actually learned to believe in myself. He was my football coach and my constant encouragement. Thank you to the family for sharing such a wonderful man with us. He made a difference in my life that I will never forget. Rest in Peace and thank you for caring for a poor kid from Brimfield.

I was a student of his during the late 80's. Ciz, was my favorite teacher!!!!! A teacher can make a difference and he did. Why?? Because I remember him as do many others. He would make you work harder if you failed and he would make sure you wouldn't fail twice! I send my love and good vibes to the family. I live in TEXAS now and he has reached across thousands of miles!! R.I.P Cizmar!!!!!!!!!

Very few can say that a teacher made an impact on their life but Mr. Cizmar was that teacher. We will always be your "dingbats"
November 06, 2013
Mr. C, To affect just one person with the motivation and guidance you provided would be considered a life accomplishment, you affected thousands! Your lessons will never parish. Thank You so much!
November 06, 2013
I'm sure you will hear this a lot but Mr. Cizmar was one of the greatest teachers there ever was. He had an amazing sense of humor that made kids want to learn and he will never be forgotten. I am very happy that my children had the opportunity to enjoy him as I did.

Truly an angel on earth has been taken to be with or Lord.
Prayers go out to all of his family. We will always love you Mr. C!!!

Mr. C was a teacher, a sports coach and most of all a friend to all that knew him. He always had a way of making you laugh and learn, usually both at the same time. I had the privilege of having him as a football coach from middle school up thru high school. His love for the game of football showed during practice and games. He gave me the nickname Yogi in middle school. It stuck thru school and still is used by a few people today. Every time I hear it I think of Mr. C and smile. God bless you for want you gave to those who knew. You will be missed.

He had the rare gift of timing: knowing when to yell, when to joke, when to lend a helping hand. The world is a less caring place without him in it.
November 06, 2013
Mr. Cizmar was just a wonderful person and a wonderful teacher. I am thankful that I knew him.

Mr. Cizmar was the person whom I wanted most to please and least to disappoint. Children live up ro and down to teachers expectations. Mr. Cizmar expected no more than that which I could do. I did love him.

Coach C, I played football for you for 6 years from middle school through high school. you taught us to be leaders no matter if it was on a football field, our homes or in the community. You taught us to be real men! Thank you for that. I coach HS football from Rootstown and find myself calling my players "Dingbats" just like you did to us. I always knew you loved us, and we loved you in return. God Speed my coach, teacher and most importantly, my friend!

"C" was such a fun teacher! I truly enjoyed his class because he always made me laugh! Even though I spent most of the time in the hallway. I would take one step in his room and he would tell me that I had that look and I was up to no good that day, and to go sit in the hall! It eventually became a challenge for me to see if I was going to be allowed to sit in class that day. I wasn't bad I was just 13, he taught me more that year about respect and self control than Ohio History but that is what I have needed most through life! Thank Mr. C you were a wonderful teacher and role model to so many!!
November 06, 2013
Although I never had Mr. Cizmar as a teacher, I had the pleasure of knowing and working with him when I took stats for the track team my senior year (class of 1975) at Field High School. He will always be one of my favorite teachers. My thoughts and prayers to the family, I am so very sorry for your loss. God Bless.
November 06, 2013

As far as people that made an incredible positive impact on my life and my youth, Mr.C, you win the prize. A person like you comes once in a life time. I loved hearing stories of your son, as a young boy riding his bike in the garage. I am sorry for the family's loss, my heart goes out to you.
