Roger Alan Czulewicz
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 Dayton University 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.

Reese, his beloved nieces: Hannah Lynn and Katerina Taylor Reese of Ashland, KY, his uncle Tony Czulewicz, his aunts; Theresa Walsh Dodson and Doris Walsh, cousins; Rick, Sharon, David Walsh, Catherine Walsh Detzel, Kimberly Dodson Martinez, Michele Dodson Erdely, and Anthony Czulewicz, Jr.
