He is survived by his wife, Iwona (nee Saraczewska); his children, Jessica (Matt Rodini) and Michael; his sisters, Janina Pisarczyk, Lucja Lipniarski; and many nieces and nephews.

Victor joined Rawle & Henderson LLP in May 2016. He served as the first Vice President of the Philadelphia Association of Paralegals and Chair of its Technology and Litigation Committees.
