Manuel was known as a strong and very opinionated man with a love for life. He enjoyed meeting new people and getting to know them and learning about their lives. He always had much to say and was not shy speaking his mind. He acquired many skills throughout his life experiences and prior military training. He was a farmer, laborer, truck driver, and eventually retired after many years working at Darigold.
Manuel was most at ease when he was spending time with family. He enjoyed a home cooked meal and made a routine of visiting loved one’s homes where he could always enjoy his favorite dishes. He loved to tell stories and laugh but he always smiled the biggest whenever he had a grandbaby on his lap. Beloved Father, Grandfather, Great Grandfather, Brother, and friend to many, you will be missed dearly, RIP “Polaco”.
