Manuel was known for his hobby farm where he had beef cattle, goats, and chickens. He cultivated his land and loved to have a vegetable garden every year. As he slowed down his garden became smaller, but he never gave it up. He was well known at All Saints Church for his devotion to God and his support of the church and its celebrations. His happiness was evident when the family came around. He loved to surround himself with family and enjoyed large events. Manuel had a valued loving relationship with his extended family and close friends.
