"Stan Zabawa, aka Letterman, was a legend at Centennial High School, class of 1982. Particularily in basketball, he was the proverbial sixth man as he could bring the crowd to a raucous level with his original cheers and antics. Stan was quiet and reserved in the classroom, somewhat an introvert, but when he began to get the crowd going, we saw another side of Stan. I feel honored to have known Stan and call him a friend. Stan was one of a kind!! God Bless you Stan, and my condolences to the family. Duane Carlson, retired Centennial Teacher"
