John Joseph Mancino ’54, age 77, of Huntington Beach, Calif., passed away July 7, 2010. John was born in Los Angeles on Nov. 30, 1932. He graduated from Mount Carmel High School where he was a multi-sport letterman, was the L.A. City Player of the Year in 1949 for Basketball and is a member of the Helms Hall of Fame. Those basketball skills earned him a scholarship to Santa Clara University. He transferred to Loyola University in Westchester after one year where he studied Accounting. Upon completing his education, John became a public accountant working for Arthur Andersen & Co. He spent the majority of his professional life operating his own accounting practice never completely retiring. Sports played a big role in John’s life … from his playing days to coaching his children, particularly in baseball, to rooting for his Angels, Dodgers and Lakers. Aside from his deep faith in Our Lord, the greatest love of his life was the time he spent with his family whom he treasured with all his heart. John is survived by his loving wife of 58 years, Marelyn, and sons John Dennis, Steve, Jeff, David, and Mark, daughters Nancy and Gina, 18 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren as well as sister, Mary Virginia. He is preceded in death by his precious grandson, Adam.
