William Hyde Manasco

May 15, 1946April 30, 2021

William Hyde “Bill” Manasco, 74, of Carbon Hill, passed away on Friday, April 30, 2021, at St. Vincent’s Hospital.

Graveside service will be held on Wednesday, May 5, 2021, at 11a.m., at Walker Memory Gardens, directed by Kilgore-Green Funeral Home. Richard Handley will officiate.

Bill was a graduate of the University of Alabama and received his J.D. from The Birmingham School of Law. He was a lifelong resident of Walker County and honorably served the community for more than three decades in several different capacities. He began his career as an attorney in Jasper, served as a District Court Judge in the early 90s, and worked for over 20 years with the District Attorney’s Office under the leadership of Charles Baker and Bill Adair. He retired as Chief Assistant D.A in 2012. Bill was a man of many other talents outside of his profession. If he was sitting still he could always be found reading books about history or studying his Bible. He was an avid history buff and was often consulted for his knowledge of both local and State history. He loved honing his skills as a carpenter and also as a shade tree mechanic. If you knew him well enough you knew what a unique sense of humor he had and that he was always up for a spirited debate. You may have even participated in one of these debates in his office, which also served as the Courthouse smoker’s lounge before that was too frowned upon. He will be greatly missed.

He was preceded in death by his son, Joseph Franklin Manasco; parents, Joseph Viletus Manasco and Bertha Sims Manasco; siblings, James Manasco, Betty Jo Little and Frances Walker.

He is survived by his wife, Muriel Manasco; son: John Manasco (Sara); granddaughters; Ally Manasco, Anna Manasco and Amelia Manasco; brother, Robert Manasco; sister, Xan Strozier; sister-in-law, Marie Hollingsworth and a host of nieces, nephews and friends.

Mrs. Manasco, Manasco Family and John. Bill was a fine man who raised two fine boys. He always listened to problems that sometimes arose and gave advice when it was sought. He was always encouraging and helpful. Bill was a fine individual. I know he will be missed. His words of wisdom helped me through some difficult times and I always appreciated his insight. So sorry John. I know he was very proud of you.
