Obituary: Peter Mangan

Peter Anthony Mangan, 64, died March 24 in Montego Bay, Jamaica following a 20-year battle with cancer.
Born and raised in Dublin, Ireland, he spent his adult years living in Massachusetts, primarily in Hull.
Mr. Mangan loved traditional Irish music, gardening, fishing, cooking, and had an insatiable interest in scientific discovery, but was devoted most of all to his children and grandchildren.
He was a woodworker by trade, taking great joy in all his work, but in particular building custom cabinetry, furniture, children’s toys, and solar collectors.
Mr. Mangan’s love for woodworking was eclipsed only by his devotion to the game of soccer. He spent many years as a volunteer coach for various youth soccer teams. He instilled a love for the game that lives on today in his players.
He leaves his son, Conor Mangan; his daughter, Tara Mangan; four grandchildren, Myles, Declan, Claire, and Cole Mangan; his sisters Nuala and Jean; and brother Gerry. He was predeceased by brothers Brian and Fergus.
A private memorial will be held by the family on April 16.
