Charles Edward Foltin
May 17, 1936 – July 3, 2019
Charles “Manny” Edward Foltin, age 83, passed from complications of Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s on July 3, 2019, in Cypress, Texas. His final days were spent in the constant presence of beloved family, friends, and caregivers at Village Green. Although Manny faced many challenging physical disabilities for many years, his spirit persisted and he continued to “show up” and participate in life. Manny is preceded in death by his father, Edward Foltin; his mother, Margaret Klores-Foltin; his sister, Margaret and husband, Kenneth Hardcastle; and niece, Gay Charbonneau. He is survived by his loving wife of 59 years, Eunice Reed-Foltin; his son, Randy Foltin; his daughter, Leslie and husband, Harry Hadland, III; his favorite grandson, Harry “Harrison” Hadland, IV; and niece, Nina Adams. Manny was born on May 17, 1936 in Houston, TX, to Eddie and Margaret and raised in the Recreation Acres area. Following his graduation from Cy-Fair High School in 1954, he attended the University of Houston. In 1958, Manny became a mechanic in the Air Force Reserves and continued to serve for 6 years. In 1960, he owned and operated two Sinclair gas stations. Manny then took a position at Cameron (later Wyman-Gordon) in 1961. He worked there for more than 37 years and was recognized as a valuable member of the machine tool repair team. Manny was a great family man, loyal friend, and proud Texan. He and his wife Eunice, loved and enjoyed participating in the Cypress Community for most of his life, coaching both boys and girls in various sports. He enjoyed fishing and the outdoors, cars (1957 B-Gas division winner in the Drag Racing National Championship), and spending time with those he loved. His family and friends will always remember him as a kind, strong, and hardworking man - always to be depended on. A funeral is scheduled for Manny on Sunday, July 7th, at 11:30 a.m. at Memorial Oaks Funeral Home and Cemetery at 13001 Katy Fwy, Houston, TX 77079. Visitation hour starts at 10:30 a.m. with a luncheon to follow the service and burial. Reverend Larry Reinecke will officiate. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Manny’s life.

I remember when we were both high school teenagers and you saw Manny Foltin....you told me "I'm going to marry him" ... little did we know at the time that, in fact, would happen and that it would be a match made in heaven that lasted 59 years!
I watched the Tribute video and it was simply beautiful. You have had a wonderful, happy life and for that I am so proud for you and my only regret is that we did not stay in touch throughout our lifetime.
My heartfelt sympathy for your loss. May your children and grandchildren fill your void with lots of laughter and love.
My love to you always,
p.s. I think I remember Manny's '38 chevy coup!

I’m so very sorry to hear of Mr. Foltin’s passing. I will always remember him standing tall and smiling, usually at something cute that Mrs. Foltin said or did. He adored his family, and was a great example for the “kids” like me who knew him. I know he’s whole and happy; my prayer is for those of you left behind. May God hold you up until you can walk again on your own. I love you all.
