Norman C. Mancini, 68, of Gray, ME passed away suddenly on April 4, 2020 in his apartment of an apparent heart attack.
Norm had a tough exterior with a big heart and was the life of the party. He always made time for his family or friends who were close to him. He was an avid sports fanatic who would keep his television tuned to NESN or ESPN. He was a devoted fan of the New England Patriots, Boston Red Sox, Boston Bruins, and Boston Celtics and was a walking encyclopedia of sports statistics. Norm also enjoyed collecting baseball cards and left behind a large collection with complete sets dating back to 1970’s. He could always be found wearing camouflage pants or a Marine Corps shirt and hat as a tribute to the pride he had in his son who is currently a First Sergeant of Marines.
Norm worked for the State of Maine for many years including Pineland Hospital and Maine Corrections. He was presently working for Northeast Safety Inc. and recently promoted to Top Flagger. He took his work very serious and was the first one to step up when needed.
Family came first to Norm, and his 2 grandchildren, Antonio (18) and Bethany (13), were at the top of the list. He was the oldest of his siblings and always stated that he was, “One of the original five: Norman, Lew, Melissa, Debbie and Nancy,” before adding Angela, Rhonda, Andrea, Bruce and Brian to the family.
Norm is predeceased by his mother Evelyn “Berry” Leighton.
He is survived by his father Charles Mancini and wife Winona of Windham, ME, his son Victor Mancini and wife Lena along with their 2 children, Antonio and Bethany, of Jacksonville, NC, and his siblings Lew Mancini of Gray, ME, Melissa Suit of Gray, ME, Debbie Mancini of Lakeland, FL, Nancy Quintal of Gray, ME, and Angela White of Windham, ME. He also leaves behind many nephews and nieces that he loved dearly.
A celebration of life will be announced at a later date.
