AVIS DE DÉCÈS
31 octobre , 1946 – 22 janvier , 2020
Manny Loiacono Sr is now up in the clouds watching over us. Manny was a great man, a passionate husband, and a loving father and grandfather who cared more about his family than anything else in this world. From a goofy kid in Hicksville, New York (who sang opera) to a nightclub singer at the Copacabana (aka Rick Daniels) to a pop singer and songwriter in the 80's (“UNIPOP” CBS Records International) to the most accomplished piano tuner (by ear) in Georgia (and factory trained at Steinway and Sons in Astoria, NY), he could always bring a smile to your face and make anyone laugh with his quick sense of humor. He had a creative mind, a huge heart, a singing voice that could bring you to tears, and that twinkle in his eyes that could win anyone over – He was truly one-of-a-kind. Manny lived a beautiful life and is loved beyond words. Every time we hear a recording by Mario Lanza or Elvis Presley, experience a confrontation between the Republicans and the Democrats, savor a chicken marsala meal or just have a Coke with a smile, we will be thinking of this magnificent man. …a legend in his own time who touched so many lives. Save us a glass of Chianti up there, Big Daddy. We love you, always and forever.

I learned about Piano Tuning by Ear, and Manny's love for cooking in an AJC article in the early 2000's. He began tuning at my church and home, and advising me on pianos. I always looked forward to seeing and talking with him; his warmth and congeniality inevitably made my day. My deepest sympathy and condolences to Phyllis and Manny Jr. and the rest of the family. Thank you for the pictures. You obviously have some wonderful memories to celebrate. May God surround you with peace and comfort through your family, friends and your cherished memories.
