The Lord Jesus Christ gently carried Roger Alan Czulewicz to his heavenly home on Sunday, February 3, 2019.

Roger fought a courageous battle with cancer and its critical effects for over a year. His medical teams both in Erie and in Pittsburgh frequently expressed amazement at his faith and courage as he suffered in pain.

Roger was born in Erie on May 30,1970, the beloved son of Francis “Shelly” and Shirley Walsh Czulewicz.

Roger graduated from St. Luke Elementary School, Cathedral Prep, Penn State University main campus where he was a member of the Alpha Chi Rho social fraternity. He then earned his Juris Doctorate at University of Dayton School of Law.

He was a very kind and giving man, often helping others with no compensation for himself. People always meant more to him than material things. He was a fun guy to be with and will be sadly missed.

Noel Ann De Santis '00

Noel Ann De Santis was born September 9, 1974 in Medina, Ohio to Don and Gerri De Santis. In 1993, she graduated from Archbishop Carroll High School in Radnor, PA. In 1997, she graduated from Cabrini College also in Radnor, PA. Noel attended the University of Dayton School of Law and graduated in 2000.

Noel’s dedication and compassion to the law began with her first job as an Assistant District Attorney for the city of Philadelphia in 2001. There she worked for over 15 years before transitioning to work as a Deputy Attorney General for the State of Pennsylvania. She returned to the Philadelphia District Attorney’s office in February 2018 to create the Elderly Justice unit which was her true passion.

Noel loved the law, she was a tough but compassionate DA. To Noel, having justice served was more important than winning. She befriended so many of her victims, visiting them long after their trial was over, making sure they got the services they needed. On her own time, Noel regularly visited one of her victims providing him with sandwiches that she made to make sure he ate. On another occasion, she called 911 and went to the hospital with another who had a medical emergency, staying with her all night until her family could arrive. There are so many more people that Noel helped; there is just not enough room to list them all. She cared deeply for those she fought for; Noel was the true definition of a Civil servant putting others before herself.

Noel was more than her job, she was a wonderful daughter, sister, sister-in-law, aunt and friend. She loved her family, was devoted to her friends, and was always there when anyone needed her. Noel was a joyful presence that will be missed.
