April 7, 1961 ~ March 9, 2021

Born in: Hartford, CT
Resided in: Hamden, CT

Frank Raymond Mangiero, 59, of Hamden, passed away unexpectedly in his home on March 9, 2021. He was born in Hartford on April 7, 1961 to the late Alphonse and Grace Lombardi Mangiero.
Frank was a longtime active member of the Annawon Lodge #115 of West Haven. Almost unheard of, he was Past Master for two consecutive years, 2016 and 2017. He was Associate Grand Tiler of the Grand Lodge of the State of Connecticut, and in 2018 he was awarded Mason of the Year. Frank was influential as coordinator for the Child Identification Program. From 2009-2015, he was the owner of Big John’s Deli in West Haven, and presently was a supervisor for Encompass Digital Media. Golf, cooking, and riding his motorcycle were some of his favorite pastimes. Frank will be remembered for his huge heart and selflessness. A charitable and kind man, he was always willing to sacrifice his own needs in order to ensure others were taken care of.
Frank leaves his two sons, Evan and Jeffrey Mangiero and his fiancée, April Renee Mercure, all of Hamden.

  1. WB Frank was one of the highlights in my return visits to my home Lodge, Annawon #115. His dedication to Masonry, and it’s teachings and principles, has inspired many Brothers over the years.

    I am most fortunate that our paths crossed, both fraternally and personally. I have been enriched.

  3. I didn’t know you personally, but as a brother you are in my thoughts and prayers. May you rest in peace.

  4. I knew Frank several years ago. A gentleman, a very dedicated individual, and a wonderful smile. My deepest condolences to April and the boys.

  5. I had the privilege of Raising Frank, help train him for the Oriental Chair, sit next to him through his time in that Chair, and work with him as the Grand Tiler.

    He will be greatly missed.

  6. I was raised 6 months after Frank, we hit it off immediately. We enjoyed swinging the golf club together and talking about life. He was a mentor and a friend and I have never met someone who was so supportive of me or cared so much. I will never forget him.
