It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Harold (Hal) L. Mangold, on August 4, 2020, at the age of 84. Hal was the beloved father of WCBA Grievance Committee Co-Chair Christopher Mangold. 
Hal Mangold was born January 5, 1936, in Poughkeepsie, New York.  He was a graduate of Fordham Law School and proudly served in the United States Marine Corps and Marine Corp Reserves retiring as a Captain. He served terms on the board of the Children’s Home of Poughkeepsie, Roosevelt Vanderbilt Historical Association, Anderson School and as President of the Dutchess County Bar Association and President of the Dutchess County Magistrate’s Association.
Hal practiced law for over 50 years in Dutchess County and retired as a partner from McCabe & Mack LLP. He served as a Hyde Park Town Justice from 1968 - 1977. He was an avid sailor and skier. He was known as “MC Extraordinaire” as the Master of Ceremonies for numerous Dutchess County functions. Fearless in his pursuit of adventure, at the age of 61 he drove a stock car at Las Vegas Motor Speedway for 8 laps attaining at top speed of 125 mph. Hal did it his way and for those fortunate to be along for the ride it was pure enjoyment.
Hal is survived by his loving wife of 62 years, Marge, son Christopher (Dawn Sinelli), daughter Patty (Victor Pecore), grandchildren Alexis, Erica, Alessandra and Ava, son in law Jay Amarosa, step-grandchildren Kristen Amarosa and Jason Amarosa and great-grandchildren Mason Pecore and Conner Marie Amarosa, brother in law Gary Plante and nieces Jennifer and Kimberly. The family is thankful for all the years of fun with the “Garden Street Gang” and his Curry Lane neighbors for the years of enjoyment and recently their support and care of Hal.
Hal fought a valiant battle against Alzheimer’s and Dementia.The family thanks Hudson Valley Hospice for their compassionate care.
Due to the current public health issues, a memorial service will be held at a later date.
