Michael “Mike” Gage Manning, 62, of Delray Beach, Fla., formerly of Newtown; Sheldon, Vt.; and Manomet, Mass.; died November 4 at his home. Born on April 9, 1955, in Springfield, Mass., he was the son of the late James J. and Patricia Gage Manning.
Mr Manning worked as a refrigeration technician for Baskin-Robbins and later for Ben & Jerry’s. He loved sports and fishing, and he had an uncanny ability to fix pretty much anything that was not working.
His children, James Manning and Kate Manning; brothers, Peter Manning and Brad Manning and his wife Kim; grandson, Jayce; a niece; and two nephews survive him.
A celebration of Mr Manning’s life will be conducted on Saturday, November 11, from 11 to noon, with a Memorial Service following in the Davis Funeral Home, 619 State Road, Plymouth (Manomet). A private burial will take place at a later date in the Manomet Cemetery.
Memorial donation may be made to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, America Gift Processing, 4742 North 24th Street, Suite 400 Phoenix AZ 85016.
