Cleveland lost a Man for Others… Mr. Gabor died last night. He was a fixture at my alma mater and was a formational theology and language teacher for tens of thousands of men who came through St. Ignatius. I always got a kick out of his “Think Greek” bumper sticker on his lectern. He was also our athletic director, and was insanely good at it. Recently, we’ve seen stories about fake sports high schools and how they’re really just frauds will to do things the wrong way to get ahead.
But Dale Gabor went about things in a different way, what was called “The Gabor Way”… which was about doing things right and not cutting corners. And his success, 20+ state titles and multiple national championships at a Blue Ribbon school, speaks for itself. I’m just sad that future generations won’t get to meet him. But I’m hopeful The Gabor Way will live on. RIP.
