Manny was an avid car enthusiast and a fan of the Baltimore Ravens. From an early age he loved to work on cars, fish, and most recently, spend time at his family ranch.

Manny. This is soo hard for me to accept.
We haven’t had much time in each other’s lives,
but, we have had fun memories. I’m going to miss how you and Uncle Brian used to play and
Joke around, and I’m going to miss how you used to crack jokes. You are an Awesome Brother, and an overall Wonderful Person. I’m
Truly going to miss you. I Love You Cousin.
Rest Well.

Manny, we got the pleasure to know you for many years. You and your family were the first to welcome us to Texas when we moved here way back in 2006. Celeste and I would hang out in y’all’s garage & you’d always hang around with us even though you claimed you were too cool for us cause you were older (only by a bit!) but it was all in good humor. As we grew up, I got to see how much of a great brother you were to your siblings. Over time, our garage hangouts were no longer a thing, but your presence was never forgotten. The sound of your car cruising down the street roars fresh in our minds. My parents always felt comfortable knowing you were around; a watchful eye in the neighborhood. We shared some good laughs as kids and teens. You inspire me to be a better older sister. I know you will continue to protect your family and that your kind soul will always be with them. Rest in peace, Manny.

Words can’t express how I feel losing my cousin, we haven’t had a lot of time together as you were growing up but grandma always made sure we knew every milestone and gave us copies of every baby pic and holiday pic. I hold dear to my heart last year when you and Celeste came to stay with us during the passing of grams, I was sooooo happy that we were able to have that time I love you manny. I should’ve got you some black air forces 🤣 (insider)

Manny, I hope you know it will never be the same not having you around. When you left apart of me went with you as well. Thank you for being here for me endlessly and loving me unconditionally. I will forever be grateful and blessed knowing I had you on my side. Stay golden kidd and don’t ever change that heart of yours. I love you and fly high flu.
