Michael Patrick Mandola, III

October 3, 1957 - November 21, 2020

Michael Patrick Mandola, age 64, passed away on Saturday, November 21, 2020 at his home in Castle Hayne NC.

Michael was born on October 3, 1957 at FE Warren Air Force Base, Cheyenne Wyoming. He was preceded in death by his father, Michael Patrick Mandola, Jr.; mother Mamie Francis Corder Quarto; stepfather Ralph L.Quarto, brother Anthony Mandola and one son Keith Scott Mandola. He is survived by his wife of 42 years Dolores Ann Mandola; his son Michael Christopher Mandola and wife Lucretia Britton Mandola; daughter Dawn Marie Mandola; and daughter Samantha Lynn Mandola Melvin and husband Dreward Melvin; grandchildren; Anthony Keith Mandola, Christopher Michael Mandola, Gregory Ryan Mandola, Hannah Mae Mandola, Kendall Jade Melvin, William Chase Mandola and Colton Drew Melvin. He is also survived by a brother Mathew Mandola and sister Kathy Mandola Abbott.

Michael was a US Marine Veteran and a proud patriot. He enjoyed his days riding motorcycles and hanging out with his fellow riders. He loved his grandchildren and children with a stubborn and sometime brassiness that outsiders wouldn’t understand. He loved sports, namely, football, NASCAR, basketball, and baseball. After becoming a double amputee he really enjoyed just getting in he car and going for rides, with no particular destination in mind. He was an animal lover and loved babies, they brought him joy and made him smile.

Michael will be missed and his spirit will carry on though his family and loved ones.

Ride In Peace Michael Patrick Mandola.
