To my old friend and backcourt buddy:

You will always be remembered by all who knew you as a unique individual. Everybody says the same things about you - small in stature, big heart, great sense of humor. I cherish the memories I have of you and all the "Spring Valley Boys". I was lucky to have a friend like you. Rest in peace,buddy.

Dear Al,  I remember you as a very kind and sincere young man throughout high school.  Your entry on my yearbook picture was so lovely and sincere.  You were admired by many and I'm sure loved by many throughout your life.  Rest in peace and happiness.

I was sorry to hear of Al Mancuso's passing.  I remember him standing out as a sweet and genuinely nice person.   He wrote in my yearbook, '... never lose your kindness".  I think he wrote that because kindness was something he valued and practiced.  I think his kindness was infectious and insprired others around him to be that way too.  May he rest in peace.

I remember "Allie" as the shorest but swiftest basketball player at PHS!  I really got to know him in our senior year study hall period..although we were supposed to be quiet and study, Allie couldn't keep quiet and sat right across from me.  He was always kind, warm and interesting to talk with.  It didn't take him long to learn about me either...I was very shy and he literally pulled me out of my shell!  Thank you so much for being such a memorable part of my life!                                   Most sincerely, Elaine

Al and I went through Army Basic Combat Training together at Fort Dix, New Jersey, in July-September 1968.  Company E, 3rd Battalion BCT.  We were in different platoons so I didn't get to know him well. He was remarkable in that the Drill Sergeants developed a special affection for him, calling him "Short Round."  Believe me, that was a most complimentary nickname compared to what they typically called "trainees."  Here is his photo from the yearbook (yes, there actually was such a thing, patterned after high school yearbooks...)  As I remember he was subsequently assigned to advanced infantry training at Fort Polk, Louisiana.  Eventually, we both wound up in Vietnam...
