Paul S. Mangione, 45, carpenter, animal advocate

Paul S. Mangione, a carpenter whose hobby was caring for injured and abandoned animals, died Wednesday of cancer at his Parkville home. He was 45.

Born in Baltimore and raised on East Monument Street and in Perry Hall, Mr. Mangione attended Perry Hall High School.

He later earned his GED diploma and went to work as a carpenter for Mangione Builders, which was owned by his father. After his father's death several years ago, Mr. Mangione worked as a self-employed carpenter.

An animal lover, Mr. Mangione rescued abandoned and sick cats and dogs, which he nursed back to health.

Nearly 12 years ago, he adopted two 10-day-old kittens whose mother had died of distemper. The kittens also contracted the distemper virus from the mother, which caused permanent brain damage.

"In spite of advice from veterinarians to euthanize the kittens, Paul padded and carpeted his entire apartment to prevent them from injuring themselves when they fell. The cats are now 11 1/2 years old," said his wife of a year, the former Jeannette Patricia Barker.

A roadside good Samaritan, Mr. Mangione often stopped his car to pick up and transport injured animals to veterinarians or wildlife centers.

He and his wife also scoured the Baltimore waterfront in Canton looking for and feeding feral cats.

Mr. Mangione also was an avid gardener.

Services were held yesterday.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by his mother, Patricia M. Clark of Essex; a sister, Jeanna Marie Mangione Bostian of Parkville; a nephew; and a niece.
