MANDL--David. David Mandl, noted New York architect and mensch, died at home in Manhattan August 4, 2007, at age 53. The cause of death was pancreatic cancer, diagnosed in January 2006.

The family is grateful to Hillel Tobias, MD, Mitchell Gaynor, MD, Continuum Hospice, home care aide Donna Gregg and numerous loyal friends who were supportive during his illness.
