It is with extreme sorrow we share news of the sudden and unexpected passing of 2019 AIA Rhode Island Chapter President, Dan Kwasniewski, AIA on Friday evening, March 1st.
Anyone who had the pleasure of knowing Dan was touched by his warm heart, ebullient spirit and positive energy. He lit up every room he walked into, and we loved him dearly for it. Professionally, Dan’s exuberant energy was only matched by his impact in the architectural field: locally, nationally and internationally. Dan was a tremendous mentor to his students at Roger Williams University, and leader to us in AIA Rhode Island. Dan was a visionary, and his vision for the future of our Chapter was especially strong. He will be sorely missed.
