He was a man of many interests, with a passion for a variety of social activities, such as watching sports and attending games, especially football, entertaining others at the many parties held at his home, enjoying music, and spending time with his family. While he spent the last seven years in declining health, Manny's strong spirit and determination were an inspiration to those around him.
