John David Manion

1945-2012 John David Manion, 67, of Pittsfield, known to his friends and family as David, passed away on December 1.

David was born on May 19, 1945 in Little Falls, N.Y., to Robert Montgomery Manion and Marion Hemstreet Manion. He spent his childhood in North Adams.

Both of his parents predeceased him, as did his older brother Robert.

He is survived by his sisters Patricia Manion Mower and Barbara Manion Whitman, his daughter Rebecca Manion Makas, grandchildren Benjamin Robert Morozuk and Allyson Ruth Morozuk, as well as a number of nieces and a nephew.

David's family fondly remembers his warm smile and his wry sense of humor. In his younger days he was a great lover of the outdoors, and he taught this love and respect to his daughter, his nieces and nephew in camping trips and walks through the woods. Dave will also be remembered for his enjoyment of motorcycles, for his exceptional skill restoring old cars, for his love of stray dogs, and of classic rock and roll. Dave enjoyed antique and glass shows, and passed this knowledge along to his daughter Rebecca.

Those who survive him are grateful for the many life lessons David taught them.
