Funeral Information for Executive Director Manuel E DeJesus

Category: All Messages,Taps – Ron Yorkovich 1:52 pm

As many of you have heard, Manny lost his battle with cancer yesterday afternoon (2 Feb); I have just spoken to the family and they have scheduled a viewing and memorial service for Tuesday, 9 February 2010 at Rogers and Breece Funeral Home (see location below). The family will accept visitors from 4:45 – 6:45 immediately followed by a memorial service at 7 pm. Manny’s wishes were to be cremated, therefore there are to be no graveside services.

Always a staunch supporter of the 82d Educational Fund; the family asks that in lieu of flowers donations be made in his name. Please also note that due to allergies and health concerns the family asks that while cards are welcome; no plants or flowers be sent to the house.

Below are the addresses for both the De Jesus family and the Funeral Home. If you need further information please contact either myself, Jaqi or Santiago here at the office (910)223-1182.

With regret I am passing on the death of our past Executive Director Manny DeJesus. He passed away late this afternoon and at this time there are no funeral arrangements.

It is with great sadness that we announce that Manuel “Manny” De Jesus, retired executive director of the 82nd Airborne Association, passed away Tuesday, February 2, 2010. As many of you know, Manny had fought a valiant fight against lung cancer. As Manny would always sign off in his letters, “Airborne All The Way!”
