Not sure what to say?

Zuyi, I am so sorry for your loss. You are in my prayers.

I had pleasure meeting Dr. Walczak back in 1998 when I first came to St. Thomas. He already retired but continued actively participate in the life of the Mathematics Department. His sharp and elegant solutions to tough Putnam Exam problems were quite impressive. I also enjoyed his broad and erudite knowledge of world classical music and literature that he shared generously. I will miss him!!

Dr. Walczak was a truly gifted and inspirational teacher. I was truly blessed to have him as a teacher.

Rest In Peace, Dr. Walczak

I had the honor of being a student in Dr. Walczak's class in the mid 70's. Beyond his best efforts to teach me about math, he took the time to teach me some things about life and effort that I never forgot, and made a transformational impact in my life. I deeply regret not taking the time to thank him personally for what he meant to me. Peace to his family and friends. We've lost a really good person.

Hube was one fine gentleman and friend. Since college days at St. Thomas College we shared many interests together. We enjoyed camping canoeing, tennis, music, chess, Laurel and Hardy, movies. etc. He will truly be missed. What a wonderful guy!

What a wonderful and caring teacher he was for so many St. Thomas students.

He helped many learners with the inricacies of mathematics and even made it fun to do....that's a skill possessed by few math teachers.

Rest in peace, Prof. Walczak.....
