Sad passing of Family Program Leader Jozef Kwiotek RIP

By Maureen Clarke

Jozef Kwiotek

We are immensely saddened by the loss of Jozef Kwiotek, Family Programme leader for Special Olympics Poland. Jozef passed away on Monday 11th of February following a short battle with cancer. Josef had amazing optimism, inner strength and life wisdom; he will be missed very much. Jozef was involved with Special Olympics Poland for over 20 years and was a wonderful ambassador for the movement. He was the true “heart” of the family programme, always happy and ready to help others in any way he could. This will be a huge loss for Special Olympics and for all who knew him. He is survived by his wife Grazyna and sons Slawek and Mariusz.
