Manuel Santos De La Garza II Eagle Age 45, passed away Thursday, March 14, 2013. Manuel was born September 30, 1967 to Manuel S. De La Garza Sr. and Mary Alice Villegas De La Garza in Lansing, MI. Manny was a self-employed contractor, known as the "HMIC" (Head Mexican in Charge). He had the ability to captivate an audience with his greatly embellished stories; he certainly was our own comedy connection. Manny had a love for fishing, and owning the pool tables, earning him the nickname "Mosconi". Manny had a great love for his family, and his beloved pet dog Spanky. Manny was preceded in death by his father. Surviving are his mother; brother, Jose (Shelly) Zavala; sisters, Tamie Lynne, Loretta (Ricardo) Ruiz, Sylvia, Yolanda (Terry Wilkes), Alicia (Jose) Ortiz, Emily and Esther Rodea; and numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.
