    We send or love and thanks for knowing John. To us he was a super-friend,great neighbor and a pal. Our thoughts of love and caring are sent to all his dear ones, who will carry on his memory for one hundred years to come. Besides all of the memories that Vangi has of our two families celebrating birthdays and graduations, one of her favorite stories she likes to tell about her first meeting with John was him saying to her, "Please tell me how did a couple of thesbians get two jocks for sons?" Another memory she has of John was his support and visits to her in 1976 when she was suffering from mental stress. His kindness will never be forgotten.

    I had the absolute pleasure of knowing "Papa" for more than 30 years and was honored to be part of his wonderful family. He loved a great "game" no matter what the sport, a good hearty belly laugh, travelling, relaxing in Maine, playing golf, but what he loved more than anything was spending time with his family. I don't know if there was anything more important to him than that. I will miss him, I know we all will -- but he'll be there - at every family holiday and gathering, and any time one of us pulls the handle and wins on the slots in AC, or when we are enjoying time by the lake in Maine -- he will be with us - in our hearts and in our memories, smiling and laughing right alongside us.

    One f the highlights of our family's life was the years we live in Maine and the great friends we found when we met the Mangini's! Needless to say Mang was a hugh part of it. I know my family was enriched by you all. I know he will be greatly missed by all the many people he touched but mostly the family who he loved so much as they loved him.

    Your sorrow can only be helped by the happy memories and good times, trips and etc. tthat you shared these past years. I will do the same and think of all the fun times, dinners, cook outs, boat ride, watching the kids play ball, Mary and Charlie and laughing so much together.

    I share your sorrow

    I really appreciate all the work that Mick does in keeping us aware of our classmates. Please accept my deepest regret on the loss of John. I was a cheerleader and was proud of all the athletes from Roselle Park.

    John really left us too young by today's standards. I'm so sorry.

    To All the Mangini's...Scott pretty much summed up what I would've written, but much more eloquently! I feel as though a relative has passed away, rather than a neighbor, from years ago! Jack, Glen, and Jill...we were more like "brothers and sisters", than neighbors! Mr. and Mrs. Mangini you were the "cool" parents! How ironic is it that Mr. Mangini passed away on the same day, as my dad, only 3 years apart?! Am sure they're sharing many memories, right now!! May "happy" memories sustain you all...RIP "Mang"..always wanted to call him that, but we weren't allowed! Fondly...Robin

    It was a great gift of friendship between John and Bert. Along with their close pals, they made the lives of so many better. They were champions in more ways than can be counted. I will always be grateful we had a chance to play golf in NJ a few years ago because that memory will always bring smiles ,,,, so thanks for that and going out of your way to keep in touch over the years and across the miles. I will miss John's bear hugs and his winning ways. Stay strong.

    My heartfelt condolences to the Mangini family for your loss. While it has been many years since we have connected, I will forever cherish the memories of our families sharing many happier times on McCabe Rd in Falmouth. Mr. Mangini was always leading the way with a smile and pat on the back. Memories like: Skiing under the lights in the backyard in below zero temperatures; The many trips to lakes; cutting the field so we could play sandlot baseball; seeing Mr. Mangini read the paper in his air conditioned car because the house wasn't air conditioned (we were very jealous); sharing piece of Mrs. Mangini's ever present chocolate cake.

    All of us kids learned a lot about loving each other and loving life from Mr. Mangini and for that I will be forever grateful. My one regret is that as we grew up, we grew apart... but I still have my memories! Rest In Peace and God bless Mrs. Mangini and the extended Mangini clan. It was my privilege to have known your husband, father, grandfather, uncle and friend. I know that he will be dearly missed. I'm sure that he and my dad, Bob Miller, are looking proudly down from heaven at their work here on earth and sharing a smile and a handshake for the legacy's and memories they left behind.

    God Bless,
    Scott Miller
