Richard (Rick) Thomas Mangini

Born in NYC to the late Charles and Edythe (Lawson) Mangini, Rick grew up in the Bronx, having lived there for 32 years before spending the next 39 years raising his family in White Plains, New York.

A graduate of St. Raymond’s High School in the Bronx, Rick was drafted into the United States Army in 1968 and was stationed in Germany as a medic.  Upon returning home, he graduated from Fordham University.

Rick spent many years teaching young people at the Rise West School in Rockland County, Sacred Heart School in Hartsdale, NY and finally had his longest tenure at Our Lady Queen of Martyrs School in the Inwood section of Manhattan.  He loved his students and got great joy out of seeing them grow and learn.  Rick had a big personality, and a deep love of the dramatic arts and music. He was an avid reader, tremendous storyteller and a die hard Yankees and Giants fan. Despite challenges he faced in life, he was resilient in important ways.  He was skilled at getting to the heart of any issue and he was incredibly supportive towards his family, friends, colleagues and students in every way possible.  Last but not least, Rick had a wonderful sense of humor and shared his humor with everyone he came in contact with, bringing joy to all.

He is survived by his wife of 43 years, Dorothy Ryan Mangini; stepson Matthew Bay Craddock; daughter Samantha Ryan O’Hare, son-in-law Matthew O’Hare, granddaughters Josephine Ryan O’Hare and Cara Helen O’Hare, niece and nephew Melissa Logan Conroy and Brian C. Logan.

He is pre-deceased by his sister and brother-in-law Teresa and John (Jack) Logan.
