David Charles Manz went home to our Lord and Savior May 1, 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Dave was born in Ely, Nevada November 17, 1945, the second son born to Beverly and Vernon Manz. He was raised in Eureka, Nevada, graduated high school in 1963 and went on to serve two years in the U.S Army. He spent most of his adult life in the mining industry where he made life-long friends.
Dave loved the outdoors. He spent most of that time fishing, hunting, golfing and especially teaching his children and grandsons the art of all. Dave’s family will miss his great story telling and laughter, but will hold those memories in our hearts and will continue to share his stories to all. His last three and half years were spent in Las Vegas where he was involved with Grace Baptist Church serving God and making new friends.
Dave is preceded in death by his parents, younger brother, Richard and youngest sister, Susan Manz-Graham.
He is survived by his best friend and wife, Tanya; daughters, Robin, Bonnie and Dawn; stepsons, Rick and Darby (Michelle); brother, Fred (Carol); sister, Frances (Ray) Bradley, 15 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.
