James H. Mannock, born May 15, 1934 in (Romford) London, England, left us on February 1, 2014 at 10 AM. Jim would have been 80 years young in May, with a plan to live to at least 100, to which his doctor agreed. James passed from undiagnosed diverticulitis.
James was preceded in death by his parents, Harold and Mary Mannock in England.
Jim left behind his loving wife of 29 years, Linda Q. Mannock and his daughter, Jane Huffstickler and husband Patrick, and grandchildren Madeline and Mitchell Huffstickler, of San Antonio, Texas. Jim loved his family deeply and was so very proud of them. Also, Jim never forgot his friends.
Jim served in the national service in the R.A.S.C, at R.M.A. Sandhurst and at the Joint Concealment Centre in Netheravon, Wiltshire England.
Upon leaving the Army Jim was awarded the David Davis Memorial Fellowship for research in international history at the London School of Economics where he obtained a B.Sc. (economics) with First Class Honors in International Relations.
Jim then received the nomination by the Vice Chancellor of Cambridge to the Eliza Proctor Advances Fellowship to Princeton University
. Jim received his Ph.D., from Princeton University, on a Fulbright Scholarship.
Jim was a Tenured Professor and taught at Trinity University, in San Antonio, Texas for many years and spoke fondly of his students. Jim also taught the travel industry, to flight attendant hopefuls and travel business employees.
He loved classical music, which was taught to him as a young boy by his Aunt Rita. He also loved visiting Kauai, Hawaii, the Best Friends Animal Hospital in Idaho, and he felt very strongly about, and donated to the Disabled Veterans of Foreign Wars
There are many things that must be left unsaid in our lives, but darling Jim will "Be lovingly remembered and deeply missed every hour of every day with a grief beyond all tears." I'll be seeing you someday darling.
In everything, Jim was a bright star and a gentle man.
Happy Birthday Darling.
