Born Nov. 12, 1943 to Manuel and Beatrice Chavez, in Nampa, Idaho, the Lord wrapped his arms around him and carried him home to rest and be whole again Nov. 5, 2012, in Klamath Falls, Ore. He was surrounded by his loving family.
The Guest Book is expired.
Manuel married Kathryn Russell on July 27, 1969. He was a devoted husband. They had been married for 43 years. This is simply a representation of how much he loved her, and how much she loved him.
He was a veteran, who served in three branches of the service: the Navy, Army and the Air Force. He finished his service at Kingsley Field in Klamath Falls, with over 24 years of service.
Surviving Manuel are his wife, his two sons, three grandchildren, six sisters, two brothers, 25 nieces and nephews, and many great nieces and nephews, countless friends and associates.
He will be missed, but never forgotten.
Job well done!
