Karaoke, hunting and playing Mahjong were some of his hobbies. His recreational activities would draw people closer to him because he would make it fun for everyone to enjoy. He was a very friendly person with a huge warm heart.

Manny's smile would automatically light up any room he entered. His presence was always known from the big smile he possesses. There was nothing in the world that could stop him. he was always determined to strive for better. He profoundly loved his brothers and sisters, his cousins, his wife, his children, his nieces and nephews, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Manny had open arms for everyone.

My condolences to his family. I visited with Manolo and Prissy when I visited Chicago with Wilfred and Audrey Robles. We watched Philippino TV, danced the ochoch with Manolo and ate delishious food prepared by Prissy. We laughed a lot and had fun! Sorry to learn of his passing. God bless you as his remaining family.
