Condolence: I knew Pat from golf buddies from Watterson. He was an outstanding teacher, coach, and family man. Watterson and Worthington were fortunate to have Pat as a role model. He will never be forgotten. May he Rest in Peace.

Condolence: The number one message Mr Mannion taught me was to always question. No matter what the topic was in class, he calmly would make comments and raise question making one think about the other side(s). Thanks Coach, for making sitting in you US History class much more than learning to be able site a bunch of facts. You were helping us how to THINK.
Rest in peace, 1971-72 US History & Government Class student, Worthington High- Lynn Church-Akin '74 Go

Condolence: I worked side by side with Pat for the past 11 years. Every morning I would make ourselves a breakfast sandwich with a Diet Coke. I loved his stories from his childhood in Akron, his boot camp days in Oklahoma & most importantly how proud he was of his kids and grandkids.Breakfast will never be the same without you my friend. Rest in eternal peace. Until we meet again. Love ya!

Condolence: Coach was a great Coach and teacher as well as a wonderful human being. I played for Coach at Worthington and I give him credit for success I had as a Coach. He taught values and cared about people as human beings. I started as a Ball boy when I was in 6 th grade and he made me feel a part of the team. He also was one of the best teachers I had in high school. Thanks Coach RIP

Condolence: The best teachers teach from the heart. Last evening I learned that the teacher who most influenced me to become a history teacher passed away this past Monday. Pat Mannion only taught at Watterson a few short years, but in that time he made a tremendous impact on me, my fellow students and the athletes he coached. Pat made history come alive for me. I looked forward to each and every class day with him.
Many years later, I taught high school history in Overland Park, KS. On the first day of each school year, I shared with my students the reason I was their history teacher: Pat Mannion.
Fourteen years ago prior to retiring in 2011, I reconnected with “Mr. Mannion.” A trip home allowed me to meet him for breakfast, and subsequently exchange Christmas cards through this past holiday. As I only learned Sunday that Pat was in hospice, I know my card did not reach him in time. However, I hope he knew how much he meant to me. My sincere condolences to Pat’s children, grandchildren and dear friends. Our Lord certainly got himself a terrific coach who will forever be missed.

Condolence: Coach Mannion was the best coach and most influential person I knew during my years at Worthington High School. I was lucky to play for such a great gentleman who taught me so much and kept me in line when I needed it most.
R.I.P. Coach.

Condolence: I will truly miss Mr. Pat, everyday he would ask how my sons were during the football/basketball season. Mr. Pat had so much wisdom, I tuned in when he spoke, because i knew it was something i could learn, or just needed to hear. Its so funny my first thought he doesn't talk a lot, but boy i was wrong It took Marty to get him going. He spoke just enough to give us his knowledge. Mr. Pat will truly be missed, I appreciate the talks Mr. Pat, rest easy my friend.

Condolence: I offer my sincere condolences to the family and friends of Coach Mannion. The 2 years I had the pleasure of playing for him at Worthington HS had such a positive impact on my life and I am forever grateful. I’ll never forget one practice when he said to all of us…”you guys better not mess with my paycheck!” We all took that to heart and went on to win the OCC championship. Thanks, Coach. RIP.

Condolence From: STEPHEN (Fr. Robert, O.Praem.) HODGES, SAN PEDRO, CALIFORNIA
Condolence: My sincere condolences to family and friends of the beloved Pat Mannion. I was blessed to be one of the players he coached in basketball and football when I attended Bishop Watterson HS (Class of ‘66). To me he will always be “Coach Mannion,” a wonderful coach not only in sports, but also in life. His words of wisdom were a blessing to everyone fortunate enough to know him. During annual summer visits to Ohio, I would see him at weekday Masses at the Church of the Resurrection in New Albany and was always impressed by his deep devotion and his ready smile when we chatted after Mass. I picture him now smiling at the smiling face of Jesus. Thanks for everything, Coach! May God reward you abundantly!

Condolence: Dear Mannion Family,
I was very saddened to hear of the passing of Mr. Mannion. I was in his World History class as a freshman at Watterson in the fall of 1963. I can still picture him standing in the front of the classroom teaching us during the Cuban Missile Crisis. As scary as that time was for us impressionable and naive students, he was an anchor of calm, steady reassurance. I will forever remember him as a quiet, kind, caring person who earned the respect of every one of his students.
May he rest in eternal peace.
Mary Margaret Schultheis

Condolence: What a wonderful neighbor. Always ready to visit and share stories. An avid reader that always shared recommendation on books to read. He will be missed in the neighborhood. I am a Watterson HS graduate attending after he had moved on to Worthington HS but he coached one of my brothers sport teams at Watterson HS. It was fun to reminisce with him about those days.
