In May 2012, The SPARK Center unexpectedly lost a beloved member of our SPARK family. Not only was Dennis Lucyniak the coordinator of SPARK’s Special Education Program, but he also was known throughout the hospital and the greater Boston community as a gifted special need’s educator who dedicated his life to nurturing and guiding fragile children and their families. He was never happier than when soothing a troubled child, engaging a reluctant learner, leading a group of toddlers on a special adventure or supporting a caregiver to be the best parent they could be.
In honor of his team spirit, enormous generosity, down-to-earth wisdom and unfailing sense of humor, the Lucyniak-Nigro family has established the Dennis Lucyniak Memorial Fund to benefit the special needs children at The SPARK Center.
A donation to the Dennis Fund will help us to continue to change the lives of special needs children and families throughout Boston.
