Richard Colagero Mangiaracina passed away on September 15, 2020. He was born in Brooklyn NY to Joseph and Marie (Valenti) Mangiaracina on October 15, 1951 and spent most of his favorite years there with his immediate and very large extended family. He lovingly cared for his parents until each of their passings in their mid 90’s. Richard attended Brooklyn College and LIU, but mostly was a highly self educated man who could challenge any Jeopardy champion. He worked for many years at Publicitas Advertising in his beloved NYC. And most recently enjoyed working at Ossining Mini Storage. His was of the kindest of hearts. A very gentle and caring person who always put others feelings and needs before his own. He was an avid reader of many subjects, a philosopher and a truly gifted self taught musician. Guitar being one of his favorite instruments. He volunteered at the Food Pantry and Friends of the Library in Ossining for many years and found great comfort in helping others. A true humanitarian and mentor to so many. He is predeceased by his parents and siblings: Anthony, Joseph, Maria and Jerry. He leaves behind many adoring nephews and nieces, great nephews and nieces, one great-great nephew and a large family of well bonded cousins. If you would like to make a donation in honor of Richards generous spirit, we feel that he would be eternally grateful if you could support your local food pantry. A silent farewell to an amazing man with a gifting heart.

Richard was such a big help at the Ossining Library and always had a smile. In his memory I have made donations in his memory for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners at the Covenant House in NYC for Thanksgiving and at Franciscan Bread for the Poor for Christmas. My he rest in Peace.

I met Richard at the Ossining Food Pantry. Although I did not know him well I remember him as a kind and loving man to both the clients and his fellow volunteers. He was a great asset at the pantry. Regardless what was asked of him he did it willingly and lovingly. He will be sorely missed. He is now in the loving arms of God. Rest in peace Richard.

Dearest Uncle Grover, I’m still trying to wrap my head around our loss. I’m going to miss our eclectic chats about Golf, Football, Ink Master, Forged in Steel, Breaking Bad, Pizza, Rube Goldberg Inventions, Joe Bonamassa, Scorcese (Mean Streets, one of your favorites), Politics and Family to name a few.

I have fond memories of you in the early 1970’s taking the train to Croton on Friday nights to watch me and Chris so my parents could go out. You would transform a simple grilled cheese sandwich into a Julia Child special by adding tomato, a little mayo and Mediterranean oregano. You also invented the flavored popcorn by sprucing it up with cayenne pepper and garlic powder. Little did my parents know you exposed us to some of the best horror films with Boris Karloff and Lon Chaney.

I will miss your love for the greatest city on earth - NYC, for playing the guitar, for painting, Shakespeare, gemology, photography, art and let us not forget food. You encouraged all of us to go for it. You provided advise and wisdom. You were always thinking about family and sending little gifts to each of us, even during the leanest of times. Thank you again for the dragon knife.

Random thoughts about an amazing Uncle and Friend whos spirit will always be with us. Affectionately, John, Bunko, Johnny Wacker, Inspector Johnny, Mr. Frozen Porkchop Salesman.

Richard was a longtime volunteer with the Ossining Food Pantry, working in different capacities with several different crews of volunteers. As chair of Friday morning food distribution, I feel blessed that Richard joined our crew years ago. He became my "right arm" when two longtime volunteers retired on the same day. He encouraged me that we would be ok and took over for them both.
Richard came early on Fridays and I was rarely there before him even tho' I come in at least an hour early. His dedication & diligence, his kindness, compassion & caring were evident always. His quiet humor, intelligence, and good sense helped each Friday distribution go smoothly and with joy. Richard will be sorely missed by all of us who had the privilege to work with him. He will never be forgotten.
Much sympathy to all of you in his family whom he often spoke so lovingly about. Thank you for sharing the wonderful photos of Richard, your family and pets. It was lovely to see Richard as a little boy and as he grew, to see the happy times he shared with you.

We mourn the death of our colleague, Richard Mangiaracina. He was a long-time and enthusiastic volunteer with the Friends of the Ossining Public Library. We were fortunate to have known him and will miss his friendship, intelligence and caring commitment in service to his community.

I worked alongside Richard at the Ossining Food Pantry. We were usually the first two volunteers to arrive on Friday mornings and we
shared lots of stories, political opinions and recipes. He was such a loving and caring man, smart, yet humble. He possessed a keen appreciation of the simple things in life and helped all of us to do the same.

My heartfelt sympathy to his family and friends. I will miss him, as will our clients and volunteers at the pantry. He was a gem!

As I sit here quietly viewing these images, so many memories are in my heart. Uncle Richie, Funky Unky, Uncle Sherbert to me. He shared his heart with us all in a way that we don’t see very often. True love, void of any judgement whatsoever. He loved an unknown passerbyer or a homeless person or dog, as he loved his family and friends. Never did he miss an opportunity to ask the well being of Dave, Jesse, Laura, Dominick, Laura , Vinny, my in laws, every pet in my home ........ His spirituality had no boundaries.

I will miss our talks, his quiet guitar playing, his quotes, pizza outings, and his writing abilities (He wrote all my birthday speeches and my best college papers) among many others times together.

It is so clear to me that life and love go hand in hand with the time we spend together and the memories made. Thanks for all the wonderful memories Unk. LUM. Carpe Diem
