He was very close to his family and would spend a lot of his time with them. Manley was such a giving person, even when he didn't have anything to give, he would still try to help someone in need. He had a heart the size of Texas. He was such a creative, humorous, intelligent and loving brother/father/son, handing out smiles to everyone he met. He loved to draw and made so many amazing drawings, a lot of them on the back porch in chalk for his sons. Not only has he left us two amazing extensions of himself, Maddex and Rylan; His memory will forever reside within us. The light that burned within him will always shine through every life he touched. He was an amazing son, father, brother and person.
