David Manuel

Obituary of David Dean Manuel

David Dean Manuel lived fifty six extremely full years drenched in love. He was a husband, a father, a brother, an uncle, a grandfather, a son, and a friend. He was a rock against which to steady yourself, a tree under which to catch shade. Now, he may become a temple, a monument to the love with which he overflowed, the lessons which he passed on, and the immeasurable impact he made on everyone with whom he crossed paths.


A giant in his own right, he is survived by the greatest love of his life, Ginger, his four children, Lindsay, Rey, Dorian, and Alex, his two grandchildren, Tony and Thea, his father, Karl, along with an extensive roster of brothers, sisters, cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends.


May he be reunited with those he lost throughout the years, free from pain, gorgeous, and free, bathed in the warmth of what comes next.


He will be remembered. Forever.

He will be missed. Forever.

He will be loved. Forever.
