Sammy Mandell married his hometown sweetheart Elizabeth Hemmino July 1926, days after winning the World Title. He got so giddy over both his new crown and forthcoming marriage that he forgot the wedding ring, at first, but found it in time for the ceremony.

Mandell died in Oak Park, Illinois, USA.
