Obituary Condolences

HAMILTON - Manuel Reyes, 80, of Hamilton, entered into God's loving embrace on Sunday, June 9, 2013, at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital at Hamilton, with his loving family by his side.
Born in Bayamon, Puerto Rico, Manuel was a long time Trenton area resident. He worked for the City of Trenton Parks and Recreation Department in the beginning of his career. Manuel started his own exterminating business in the early 1970s, Manuel's Pest Control, after having worked for Cooper Pest Control and Vogel Ritt. Manuel continued to run his pest control business on a part time basis while working at New Jersey Transit as a bus driver and retired after 18 years of service. Manuel had an incredible sense of humor, enjoyed playing the lottery, was very sociable, and was the center of attention to all those around him. He was an avid Phillies fan who was dedicated to his work and his family, especially his grandchildren. Manuel loved the Lord, and kept his faith throughout his illness.
Mr. Manuel Reyes was predeceased by his sister, Carmen Lydia, a daughter, Iris Y. Reyes, and grandsons, Rodney Nathaniel Howell and D'Metrius Reyes.
Left to cherish his funny and loving memory are his loving wife, Pamela Reyes; his caring brothers and sisters, Jose Rojas, Hilda Rivera, Antonia Rivera, Alberto "Papo" Rivera and Engracia "Tata" Rivera; his wonderful sons and daughters, Gladys Reyes-Diaz (Manny), Luis M. Reyes, Harry Reyes (Carmen), Miguel Reyes (Jocelyn), Grace Reyes (Warren), Nydia Rawls (Marvin), and Judy Reyes Robinson (Thomas); 27 beautiful grandchildren, five of whom he raised; and 26 adorable great-grandchildren.
