William "Bill" Earl Mancini Obituary

Our loved one, William Earl Mancini, known as Bill Mancini, a brother, a son and a loyal friend, was born on Wednesday, December 31, 1969 and died on Saturday, August 13, 2022. He died of cancer at the age of 52 in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin. Bill was raised and cared for by his adoptive parents, Dan and Diane Mancini. Bill was predeceased by his adoptive mother, Diane Mancini, and his biological father, “Big” Bill Mancini. He is survived by his adoptive father, Dan, who is also his biological uncle, and his siblings, Ryan, Andy, David, and Megan Mancini. 

Graduating from Pius XI High School in Milwaukee, Bill worked in restaurants and grocery stores throughout his professional life, and was known as a hard worker and loyal employee. Much loved and respected by his coworkers, Bill created comradery and community around him wherever he went through his warmth and kindness. Bill was a person with developmental disabilities who repeatedly defied societal expectations, demonstrated in one instance by teaching his youngest sibling to read. He was a voracious reader himself, particularly fond of murder mysteries, westerns, and romance novels. Bill had multiple lifelong interests. He loved bowling, and played in bowling leagues through his adult life. He was a dedicated fan of professional wrestling, which he followed regularly by watching on television. Bill also had a deep sense of connection to the independent, powerful, and wild nature of wolves. Bill embodied a warm and loving presence and an earnest humility, and valued his relationships with his friends and family above all else. He will be dearly missed by those he left behind. 

Memorials appreciated to the American Cancer Society.
