Victor Dziekiewicz Obituary
Victor Ignacio Dziekiewicz, born in Buenos Aires, Argentina passed away peacefully on Sunday March 1, 2015 at his home in Chicago, surrounded by his family after a long battle with cancer. Victor was the loving son of Maria Iucci Dziekiewicz and the late Adolf Dziekiewicz, loved brother of Ana S. Wolfe, beloved husband of Maria Dziekiewicz, dedicated father of Gabriel, Laura and Hector and mentor to many. Victor was a former professor at Northern Illinois University, an accomplished and well respected Chicago Architect and a proud family man who had an undying love for soccer. Victor founded his architecture firm, DesignBridge, LTD in 1985. He won numerous awards for architectural and interior design excellence. In addition to those recognitions, much of his work, including his furniture designs have been widely published, exhibited and prized. He was a member of the American Institute of Architects as well as the Hispanic American Construction Industry Association, (HACIA), where he served as Board President for two terms. In 2007, Victor was appointed by Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley to serve on the City's Building Board of Appeals, where he served two consecutive terms. In 2012, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emmanuel appointed Victor to serve as Commissioner for the Commission on Chicago Landmarks. In lieu of flowers the family will accept memorials in Victor's name to WBEZ (Victor's favorite radio station that played at DesignBridge, Ltd. every day for 30 years), or Twist Out Cancer. Services celebrating Victor's life and his memory will be held at Ewald-Barlock Funeral Home, 2501 N. Southport Ave, Chicago, Illinois 60614 on Friday March 6, 2015 from 4PM-8PM.
