The family of Dennis R. Manning has received the following condolences.
I am sorry for the loss of Denny. A father of 3 absolutely perfect fantastic boys. My thoughts and prayers are with Denny's family and friends but most importantly with his boys. I think about them every day and hurt for them as they deal with this tragedy. May God Bless his boys with the strength to get past the loss of their Dad.
Hello. I work in the septic system regulation department at the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency. We were very sorry to hear about Dennis' accident and passing. We worked with him in this area for years and felt the void when he left Olmsted County. - Gretchen Sabel
My sympathies go out to all of the Manning family. I found out through my friend Juanita Konkel who was a nursing friend of Patty's. I am Dennis' first cousin (his mother Elaine and my mother Clarice were sisters) but unfortunately I have lost all contact with the family since our Grandma Hunter passed away in 1989. I remember fun conversations with Dennis at Grandma's when his family came to visit in Arcadia. May you all be consoled with great memories.
My deepest sympathy to all of the Manning family. I was a Nursing classmate and friend of Patty's and had met Denny through her. Was informed of his death at the 45th Nursing Class Reunion in Santa Barbara. Until I am able to contact Patty personally I extend thoughts and prayers to all. Juanita Konkel
My deepest sympathies to all of the Manning Family who were with me at Lourdes. I aw Denny at my mother's funeral in April. I was so thrilled to see him again, so I am very saddened by this news.
He was a big light. And still is. My condolences to Sheila, Patty, and John, and my fond remembrances of our shared past.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to each of you in the loss of your father. We too will never forget his happy go lucky personality and how he loved to watch and support you boys in hockey. Blessed be his memory.
My prayers are for Dennis's family and friends. We were classmates at LHS. We spoke at many class reunions and he was always having a great time and had a healthy attitude about life.
My prayers go out to your family. Matt, Andy & Jeff, your dad was always a person everyone wanted to talk to. He made us all laugh, something that was obviously passed down to each of you.
My thoughts and prayers go out to you Matt, Andy, and Jeff. I remember Dennis always the arena watching you guys play hockey. He loved the game and loved to see you guys play.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Denny's family in this time of grief. Denny will be remember by us and many others as always having a positive spirit; a smile on his face and a little twinkle in his eye. The memories of our Lourdes High School days will always include Denny --- making a huge, hard hitting tackle in a football game, or hearing his contagious laugh in the lunch room. He always seemed to be living life to the fullest; with zest, with constant energy, and with great enjoyment. Wonderful memories. A tragic loss. God Bless.

Dennis has a precence that could not be mistaken, when he was near you, you would just feel better about everything going on in your life because he was always supportive and never judge anyone. He has a smile and laught that lit up the room and could end wars.
We will miss a great mentor and a amazing person!

Dear Patty, Sheila and John,
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your families. I will always remember Denny's infectious smile and laugh from our days at St John's through Lourdes. God bless you at this most difficult time.
Love, Mary Jo Kelly Schneider
My deepest sympathy and prayers go out to Denny's family. I will never forget the good times I had with Denny as my classmate at Lourdes. He was always fun to be around and had such a good outlook on life. I am so glad that I had the opportunity to visit with Denny at our 2010 class reunion. I am sure he will be missed by all who knew and loved him.
I am sorry Matt, Andrew and Jeffrey to hear of your daddy leave us. When I worked with Denny for nine years, I saw you three grow from toddlers to adolescent age. I remember many times that Denny would come into the office tired eyes many times and wonder if he would make it through 5:00. He did it with honors. I was looking forward to greeting you all again; however, I have another committment and will be out of town. Again, I am sorry for your lose.
Dear Manning Family,
We are saddened deeply to hear of the loss of your dad. He was always such a wonderful supporter of you when you participated in track and field and we knew your successes gave him great joy. We will keep you close in thought and prayer.
Matt and Amy Northrop
