Senior Derek Fikely Dies Suddenly

Release Date: Thursday, April 19, 2012

It is with sadness that I notify you of the sudden death of one of our students, Derek Fikely. Derek enrolled at the College in 2003 as a member of the first coeducation class, but did not graduate with his class in 2007. Recently, he completed his course requirements for a degree in the School of Continuing and Professional Studies and had hoped to graduate this May. I know you join me in extending sympathy to Derek’s parents, family, and friends as well as to the Class of 2007 and his fellow SCPS students. 
Funeral arrangements are as follows:
There will be a viewing on Sunday night, April 22nd, from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. at Koller’s 6835 Ridge Avenue, Philadelphia. Another viewing will be at Koller's held Monday morning from 9:00 to 9:30 a.m., followed by a 10:00 a.m. Funeral Mass at Saint John the Baptist, 119 Rector Street, Manyunk.
