Daniel (Dan) Joseph Mancuso

d. November 9, 2021

Daniel (Dan) Joseph Mancuso, born on December 26, 1946, originally from Oakland and most recently Bethel Park, passed away on November 9, 2021. Son of the late Ida Mae and Sam Mancuso, son-in-law to Charles Fascetti and the late Grace Fascetti, husband to Debbie Mancuso, father to Danny (Carey) Mancuso, brother of the late Merilee (Mike) DiPippa, brother-in-law to Cindy (Barry) Rack, Tina (Tom) DeLorenzo, the late Chuckie Fascetti, the late Robert (Carol) Fascetti, uncle to Laura (Rodney) Richardson, Michael DiPippa and many great-nieces, nephews, cousins and friends, Dan took pride in his family above all else. He hosted events all summer by the pool, talked sports, especially Pitt football and the Steelers, and always threw in a political zinger to get a rise out of the family. Colloquially known in the family as Uncle Dan, "UD", or Uncle Potty Mouth, Dan always brought a ray of happiness and joy into any room. He served as an Honor Guard during the Vietnam War, guarding both the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and John F. Kennedy's grave. This was an integral part of his life that brought him great honor and joy. He was many good things, but family and friends would say that he was the glue that held everyone together. His sense of humor and wit were unmatched. He was a confidant when you needed it, would lift you up when you were sad, celebrate your wins and give advice whether you asked for it or not. He was generous in every way. Above all else, Dan was genuine, non-judgmental, a loving husband, and the best father. He will be greatly missed, but his influence, generosity, and love is something that will continue to live on for many years.
