Help to give JP Mangan Jr. the burial he deserves

Hey everyone, if you haven't already heard, JP (John) Mangan Jr. passed away yesterday. It was extremely unexpected and, quite frankly, devastating for our whole family... Especially for his two beautiful daughters, Lexi and Elora.

JP was always the first person to offer to help friend or family when they were in need. Even if he couldn't physically do anything to help, he was always there to crack a joke just to cheer you up and make you smile. He was always very involved with the community, coaching both of his daughters in softball and doing absolutely everything he could to give every child he met a wonderful experience. JP was a teamster with an amazing work ethic. He would give you the shirt off his back both figuratively and literally as he often made appearances at various flea markets throughout the area to supply everyone with their favorite Harley, Steelers, and Buccos gear. He worked relentlessly to give his family the best life they could hope for; he put Lexi into school at Slippery Rock University where she continues her studies and was preparing Elora for her journey once she graduates high school. 

Unfortunately, having passed away so suddenly, he and our family were completely unprepared for this. As such, we had nothing in place to give him the service and burial that he and his family deserve. We set this go fund me account up to help give him and his family the peace of mind of knowing J is resting comfortably. Anything you can give to help us lay him to rest would be incredible. Thank you all in advance.29104612_1552057418853693_r.jpeg29104612_155205743370197_r.jpeg
