    So sorry to hear of Uncle Manny’s passing. He always had a smile and a joke for you, even when he couldn’t remember who you were. I’m sorry that, because of this virus, he didn’t get the send off he deserved. He will be greatly missed by all of those who loved him. Tim, Elaine and Brian, my heartfelt condolences go out to you and your families.

    Michael & Rick Hutcheon
    Myself and brother Rick are so sad and sorry to hear of the passing of Uncle Manny.  We will always remember what a talent he had with carpentry, his jokes his puzzles and his tricks.  
    It was 1975 and I bought a set of high end speaker tweeters for my new stereo system.  They needed a casing and Uncle Manny made two small beautiful wooden cabinet casings for them.  I still have these tweeters connected and sitting on top my existing speakers today.  Part of him will always be with me.
    I have said often that when we are no longer able to walk with our loved ones, It is comforting knowing that they are walking with angels.
    Thoughts and love go out to Elaine, Tim, Brian and your families.

    Tim  , Elaine and Brian  John and I were very saddened to hear of the passing of your father. Manny was a lovely friend and neighbour to my parents for many years.  He always had a smile on his face and a trick or game to show you that brought a smile to our face.  his beautiful wood working and workmanship was superior and we were fortunate to have a few pieces of his handiwork
    We are so sorry his journey has ended here but every time we pass the house we will forever remember Manny and your family and all the great memories our families shared with both your mother and father
    RIP Manny you are finally home with your Ellie

    Tim, Elaine and Brian
    I thought the world of Uncle Manny. He and your Mom  were such a big part of our lives growing up. He was always so much fun. And such a talented wood worker. All the things he made over the years, so many pieces in my parent's home. He loved you kids, and all of us cousin kids. I hope you find solace in knowing how much he was cherished. A truly wonderful man.
    A big hug to all 3 of you, and your families
    Love Barb, Tristan, Madeline and a special hug from Karen

    A person who loved to refinish antique furniture.
    The person who did carpentry work for me.
    The person I bowled ten-pins with for a great many years.
    I remember the love he showed for family and friends.
    Thanks Manny.
