John Charles "JC" Mangano, Sr., August 1939 - February 2021. On Monday, February 15, 2021, John Charles Mangano, loving husband and father of four children, passed away at the age of 81. "You Never Said Goodbye" -Author Unknown. "You never said I'm leaving, You never said goodbye. You were gone before we knew it, And only God knows why. A million times we need you, A million times we cried. If love alone could have saved you, You never would have died. In life we loved you dearly, In death we love you still. In our hearts you hold a place, That no one could ever fill. It broke our hearts to lose you, But you did not go alone. For part of us went with you, The day God took you home...." It gives our family great pleasure to know that our dad will now be with his parents John and Mary Mangano. Also, his sister MaryJo and her husband Orie Canik. His in-laws Dick and Ursula Wade and last but not least wagging their tails Belzar, Peanut, and Ladybug. John was survived by his lovely wife of 62 years, Rosemarie Mangano; his four children and their spouses: Theresa M Tranchina, Anna and Tony Burchfield, Monica and Brett McClure, and John Charles "JJ" and Amy Mangano. "Papa John" was very proud of his grandchildren and great grandchildren: Brett Tranchina married to Callie Denham Tranchina, their children are AnnMarie and Audrey Tranchina; Justin Mangano; Meagon Burchfield Singletary married to Brian Singletary, their children are Parker and Sadie Singletary; Jamie McClure; Tess Tranchina Dillion married to James Dillion, their children are Liliana and Liam Dillion; Jacie McClure; Jake Burchfield; and Sophia Rose Mangano. We will always be thankful, grateful, and blessed for what John Mangano did for his family.

What a beautiful obituary for John, Obviously written in love. He was bigger than life, charismatic, someone you never forget. He excelled in life, in business, Jaycees, whatever he did. Most importantly, he was a wonderful husband and father, grandfather, uncle, son, brother and friend. We have so many wonderful memories and we know that we’ll see him again. My condolences to Rose and his family. Praying for you all. Love, Joy

Theresa we are so sorry for your loss. Losing our parents is one of the hardest things we must suffer. May the Lord comfort you and your family during the days ahead. Your mom will need you to be there for her and I am sure you will be.
