Obituary for John Bernard Mangini
John Bernard Mangini - suddenly at his home on May 3, 2017. Aged 58 years.
A big guy with a big heart, "Johnny Lips" would do anything for anyone. Beneath his guarded exterior was a Teddy Bear of a man, full of love and kindness. He was the type to get along with anyone and made friends easily (as long as you didn't mess with him!).
John loved sports and followed Boxing, Wrestling, The Dolphins but most passionately the Flyers. The most important thing in his life was his family and his grandchildren were the apple of his eye.
Prior to retirement, due to disability, John provided for his family as a truck driver, working for Joanna Farms and Waste Management to name a few.
John's death has left a deep void in the hearts of the family and friends, he will be deeply missed... and remember behave or... "I'll fix you up!!!"
He is the beloved husband of Donna (nee Bumpus); devoted father of John, Steven (Donna), Marc and Lorraine; adoring grandfather of Steven, Justin, Deana, Lilly and Giovanni; dear brother of Theresa Kline (Edward), Violet Gallagher (James), Anthony (Barbara) and Gary (Deborah) and the late Dominic Gentile, Karen Warrington (surviving, Michael) and Joseph (surviving, Nancy).
