Noel Mancilla Romero

December 10, 1959 –
 December 23, 2022


Noel Mancilla Romero was born on December 10, 1959, in Mesitas del Colegio, Colombia. He moved to the United States as a teenager where he later started a family, graduated from Spartan School of Aeronautics, and worked as an airplane technician within various aviation companies including Spirit Airlines to conclude his career.

He was a devoted and loving father and grandfather. He loved spending time with his family; had an insatiable desire to fix things, had a lifelong love of airplanes; and loved to chat with anybody. He possessed a laid-back personality with a great sense of humor and was always willing to lend a hand to a friend. He was a hard worker and was a lot of fun to be around. He will be greatly missed by those that knew him.

Noel died unexpectedly in Downingtown, PA on Friday, December 23, 2022, at the age of 63. He is survived by his son, Bruce; daughter, Belen; granddaughter, Zylee; and several brothers, sisters, nieces, and nephews.

He is preceded in death by his father, Isidro and mother, Belen.

9 Thoughts on Noel Mancilla Romero
    31 Dec 2022

    Mi mas sentido de condolencias, para este momento que estamos enfrentando en familia.
    Mi tio, fue un ser transparente, pulcro, dado a velar y proteger a su familia, siempre fue muy reservado con sus asuntos de caracter personal y familiar; eso siempre se llevará mi admiración.
    En esto momentos es indescriptible el sentimiento que cada uno sentimos a raiz de su partida, puesto a que fue muy repentina. Yo en calidad de sobrina me atevo a decir que para mi tio fue, es y para siempre será un ser de admiración que deja huella y se lleva parate de mi corazón con él a la eternidad… “No estaba lista para verte partir porque para mi mami y para mi eres nuestro sitio seguro” me encantaba cuando venias a Colombia y despues de un rato nos quedabamos charlando los dos, y yo siempre les decia a todos “él ya pasó tiempo con todos y ahora es mi turno” Siempre creí que mi tío iba a ser eterno, ahora considero que debí abrazarlo mas fuerte la última vez… Otra expreiencia vivida para mi son sus llamadas con mi mamá, el gesto tan hermoso de mostrarnos el mundo a traves de una pantalla.
    Se que estás cuidandonos a todos en estos momentos dandonos fortaleza con mi padre celestial, quieres en estos mosmentos que estemos bien, pero la realidad es otra al extrañar a un ser amado como tú. Voy a extrañar todas tus características terrenales, tu acento, tu modo de expresarte verbalmente y fisicamente. TE AMO TIO BELLO, TE AMO, Y TE AMARÉ POR SIEMPRE…. BESOS A TÍ ALLÁ EN EL CIELO….

    Mi Hermano Papá…
    Yo no te digo adiós, esto es un hasta luego, porque sé que el día que yo parta de este mundo, tu me vas a estar esperando, para recibirme y de ahí no nos vamos a volver a separar.
    Te doy gracias por esos momentos, por esas llamadas y por los videos, gracias por estar ahí para mi. Yo te amo y te amaré y te voy a guardar muy adentro de mi corazón donde nadie te toque ni con el pensamiento. Sé que te voy a extrañar mucho mucho, porque fuiste un gran ser humano, un excelente hijo, un excelente padre y un excelente hermano… Te amo y por siempre.

    Our thoughts, prayers and strength go out to you and your family during this difficult time. We had the honor to meet Noel although brief; and even in that limited interaction we immediately felt the love and passion he had for his family. He will forever live on through his beautiful, strong, and caring family who we’ve been blessed to become friends.

    My deepest condolences Belen and Bruce. I met your father when I joined Spirit Airlines back in 2014. I’ve been fortunate enough to work on shift with Noel since then. He and I developed a close professional and personal relationship that grew throughout the years. Our personal relationship seemed to grow the most over those years because of our love for humor.
    For those who knew Noel, he had a GREAT sense of humor!!! He and I would always pass our working hours pulling pranks and making jokes about one another. I always joked about Noel’s perfect hair and Noel always joked about my lack of hair. He always went out of his way to setup a prank or joke on me just to watch my reaction and I took great pride in trying to catch him setting up his pranks/jokes. He was a worthy adversary when it came to joking around.
    What I’ll miss most is his smile, laughter, and when talking to him, his general concern for his co-workers and friends. He was a great guy that will be sorely missed by his co-workers and especially, myself.
    My condolences to the entire Mancilla Romero family.

"If I could give 6 stars I would. Aria made a difficult easier to deal with by basically taking care of everything in an efficient but very empathetic manner. I can speak highly enough of Dusty Martin, who helped us with all of the planning and logistics. He was incredibly understanding and helpful."

"Nothing prepares you for the grief you go through when losing a child. I called this funeral home at 2:00 am broken and could barely talk. The amount of compassion and empathy they showed me immediately let me know I found the right place to cremate my son. I cannot thank them enough for their professionalism, SINCERE concern, and commitment to making sure my son was honored in the most respectful way. I hope this Funeral home values her as much as my family and I do."

"I can’t say enough about how helpful and professional Dusty Martin, the funeral director at the Aria Cremation location on NW Highway has been. From my initial call, he was kind and informative. My friend died at home while on hospice and she was picked up in about an hour after receiving the call from the hospice nurse. The person who arrived to pick her up was also very professional/respectful and allowed us to take as much time with her as we wished. When I met with Dusty the next day about arrangements, he explained the process and options available without being pushy or trying to “sell” extras. Throughout the process, he kept me informed and, for example, was careful to be certain I understood the cost of the obituary I wanted and offered some options for reducing that cost if I wished. When I stopped by for another reason and started talking about some of the problems I was having with the pictures and media I hoped to use at a memorial lunch I was planning, he not only listened patiently but offered technology advice and let me use his personal media player. I have had experience arranging cremations for four others using two other local companies, and this experience with Dusty at Aria has been by far the best one I have had."

"My Daddy’s service and our family experience at Aria Northwest Highway was truly blessed. Funeral Director Dustin Martin is the kind of person that you would like to see on a more regular basis – but in his industry – you hope to not see him that often. That being said – THANK YOU DUSTIN for your unending kindness, compassion and friendship through the process. Meeting you and discussing Dallas History, Find A Grave and my Dad’s lifelong contributions to the great City of Dallas was simply wonderful! In memory of my dad James A. Dodd, Sr. – I want to personally thank you and let you know that you made everything better in that moment. Your calling to “Be There” is spot on. Aria has a one in a million guy in you! Bling Blinky of TEXAS Shout Out: God Bless You!!"
