Manuel and Alice were married for 68 years. He was proud and exceptionally protective of his 5 daughters: Lydia, Margaret, Rosalie, Elizabeth and Natalie. He adored his 8 grandchildren: Michele, Lisa, Jeremy, Jesse, Jamie, Amanda, Brooke and Victoria. They have fond memories of his playful and loving ways. His legacy continues with his great-grandchildren: Ryan, Matthew, Jordan, Jacqueline, Stellan, Landon and newborn baby Troy. A traditionalist, he enjoyed the holidays and opportunity to gather with his entire family. He prepared for that by brightly decorating his home with Christmas lights & making amazing sangria. We are grateful for having him in our lives and while we are saddened by his departure, those wonderful memories that we have of Manolo, Manny, Tio, Daddy, Pa and Manuel, will live in us for the remainder of our lives.
