In Memory of Roman W. Dychdala, P.E., P.L.S.


Roman W. Dychdala, P.E., P.L.S. age 54, husband of Kelly A. (McDonough) Dychdala, of Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, passed away on Wednesday, April 25, 2018 in Einstein Medical Center Montgomery. Born on August 21, 1963 in Norristown, Pennsylvania, he was a son of Lydia (Korchynsky) Dychdala of Norristown, PA and the late George R. Dychdala.

In addition to his wife and mother, Roman is survived by three children, Colleen N., Andrew R., and Erin M. Dychdala, all of Phoenixville; three siblings, Eugene Dychdala of Norristown, PA, Nella, wife of Rob Venella of Collegeville, PA, and Maria, wife of Eric Hanzel of Pittsburgh, PA; and eleven nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by one nephew.

A highly accomplished and skillful engineer / surveyor with almost 30 years of design and review experience, Roman is one of the most technically gifted engineers in the field of Civil Engineering today.  As a 1986 graduate of Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, he has gained an immense amount of experience navigating through the ever-changing world of land development by working for both large and small engineering firms. He received his professional Engineering license from Pennsylvania in 1992 and has design and managed numerous residential, commercial, industrial and institutional project's. 

Roman’s practical, no-nonsense approach to engineering, combined with his in-depth knowledge of Pennsylvania Zoning and Subdivision practices makes him one of the best land development consultants in the business; as such, his services as an expert witness have been utilized in many Conditional Use, Zoning Variance and Special Exception cases throughout the southeastern Pennsylvania region.


In 2013, Roman obtained his professional Land Surveyor's license in Pennsylvania, and followed that up with a Delaware PLS registration in 2014.

Roman is dearly missed in the day to day operations of InLand Design.
