John Edward "Jack" Manning
I was so sorry to hear the news of Jack's passing. He was such a beautiful and genuine person. I waited tables at the Bull & Bear for 10 years and Jack was one of my favorite patrons. He could make me laugh like no one else could and when HE laughed, it was just infectious. Jack was quick with a hug, a compliment, or a sarcastic response...but only in fun. I haven't seen Jack in years but several months ago we were sitting beside each other at a stoplight and we blew a kiss to each other and waved.
I sincerely apologize that I couldn't attend his service. I really wanted to be there but couldn't. You were very lucky to have such a wonderful man in your life. Thank you for sharing him with the rest of us.
May God watch over you and comfort you in your time of grief.
I would like to express my condolences to your family. I knew him from the Bull and the Bear. Jack was such a kind and funny man, who reminded me very much of my own father, who passed away from cancer in December. It saddens me that I found out too late to pay my respects, but please know that Jack and his family were in our prayers. I will remember him fondly.
Sharon and Mike,
We would like to express our condolences on the loss of Jack. Our thoughts and prayers are with you in this difficult time.
I met Jack quite a few years ago at the OTB parlor in Alberta.He was a gentleman of the sport,and we need more folks around like him,as he brightened my day each time he would visit.
Peace and Love to all of his family.
Kim, Dary and Jasmin enjoyed having Jack as a neighbor for several years at North Bend as well as getting together for Tuesday Night Trivia at The Bull & The Bear. Your kind and humorous demeanor will be missed.
