Matthew Paul Manas Obituary
Nov. 2, 1932 - Dec. 21, 2017 Woodland Matthew Paul Manas (born Salvador Rubio Manas) was born in Vacaville and raised in Woodland. After graduating from Woodland High school in 1950, Matt attended Sacramento City College where he earned an Associate's degree, played the trumpet in band and orchestra and learned the craft of piano tuning. Matt enlisted in the US Army during the Korean War. After his military service, selling became his forte and was self-employed as a Real Estate Broker. At age 45 he converted to Christianity and changed his name. He became a disciple of Christ and grew in grace, kindness and acts of service. Matt lived an independent and healthy life and was an avid Square, Round and Clog dancer. He enjoyed bike riding and was faithful in his church fellowship. Matt was vibrant, active and optimistic at the age of 85. Matt is preceded in death by his parents, Michael and Gabriela Manas. He is survived by his siblings, Michael Manas, Alfred Manas and Gloria Ackley. He is also survived by his children, Kathy Fields, Ted Manas, Karen Doughty, Tracy Manas, Julie Yong and Caroline Trinidad. He leaves behind 10 grandchildren and one great-grandchild. Matt was buried with honors at Sacramento Valley National Cemetery for Veterans in Dixon on January 9, 2018. A Memorial celebrating his life will be held on January 19, 2018, at 11 a.m., at the Fair Oaks Presbyterian Church, 11427 Fair Oaks Blvd., Fair Oaks CA 95628, with reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests, as a way to honor Matt, is to send a donation to the Salvation Army and/or extend an Act of Kindness to someone. Thank you.
