I am writing to express my condolences for the passing of your father. I would like to share with you and your family that I have always regarded your father as the best man I have ever known. I have the highest respect and regard for him. He was very insrumental in helping guide me through the Middle school with all the things taking place there. He was always fair,but firm in what he expected from someone. I have only the fondest memories of him when I think back to those days. Playing softball with faculty against the students and he never needed a baseball glove because his hands were so large he could catch anything.
Again, Please except the condolences from all my family to you and all your brothers from the Howats.
God bless you all,
Mr. Mancosh made this poor North Side kid feel welcome in a foreign land [Fox Chapel]. I will always be grateful to he and his family for living the Gospel and how it impacted me. You are all in my prayers.
I am so very sorry to hear of the loss of your father. Although I did not know him personally, reading all of the wonderful things others that knew him wrote, I believe he would have been someone that anyone would have bee privileged to know. It also gives insight to the man you became and your own accomplishments. There would be no doubt in my mind that when he crossed the finish line he heard the words "Well Done!". May God Bless You & Yours At This Time
Dear Doug, Don, Dave, Dan and your Families,
Please accept my heartfelt sympathy at your father's passing. He was a great educator and a wonderful human being!
Mr.. Mancosh not only influenced me, but countless others as we paved our way through middle school. He adjusted our gyros and helped to point the compass.
He was always most supportive and encouraging to me, but taught us all how to be respectful and understanding.
While I envy you for having had him in your life so long, (as I lost my dad 29 years ago,) I know you will appreciate the wonderful life he lived and that legacy that is now yours to share.
My thoughts and prayers are with you as you grieve and celebrate a life well lived.
With deep condolences,
To the Mancosh family: My deepest condolences to you all for a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, teacher, and excellent headmaster! I worked for Mr. Mancosh at SSA Middle School from 1979- 1986. He gave me my first chance of teaching earth science, and to this day is my favorite subject to teach. I did teach at Yorktown Middle School for 14 yrs. Teaching middle school for 24 yrs. has been very rewarding! Dave Mancosh was a wonderful person who had the vision to help guide his students and faculty to reach their greatest potential. He surely will be missed!
David, Dan, Don, Doug, and Family,
Sorry to have learned of Uncle Dave's passing. He was a dear and lovely man. So many fond memories of Uncle Dave, his stories, gentleness and loving way. He truly was a remarkable man. The boys and I will have your family in our thoughts and prayers. Fondly, Susie

Your father was a colleague, friend, and a great golfing buddy and one of the most important persons in my life. He was a man I respected and admired....a good family man and an educator who truly like the "kids".

Dave, Dan, Doug, and Don ,
Your father gave me the opportunity of my life - he hired me right out of college, accepted me for just being me, and I have have to thank him for all my successes. He was a great family man, a sincere educator, and for me a good friend. Oh, how enjoyed our time on the golf course.
Cheri and I will always remember your father and for all the good he stood for........a great man with a wonderful family.
Our deepest sympathy from the two of us.

Mr. Mancosh was one of the most memorable people from my whole life at Shady Side. He was a wonderful teacher and an exemplary person. He was a particular hero to me for the amount he read. The man always had a book going. Please accept my condolences.

Dan, Dave, Doug, Don & families - -Annie and I are so sorry to hear this. I have such wonderful memories of Mr. Mancosh and the many fun times I spent at your house messing with carts, mini bikes, and all the toys your Dad helped to build. He is/was a monumental mentor for so many of us. I feel lucky to have been one of his students and your friend.
Such an important person in my life. I am so glad my wife and I got to know him in my post SSA years. We will miss him. Bill Lieberman '65

I have fond memories of being a neighbor on Filmore Road and then a student at S.S.A. He was a giant and his kids were imbued with the right values. His mere physical presence was enough to deter me from any thoughts of violating the rules. Mark D. Schwartz, SSA 1971, www.markschwartzesq.com
Please accept my condolences. - Jeff Pollock, Esq., Sq. Hill (SSA '80)
