He was proud of his Navy service as a signalman first class during WWll aboard the USS Arkansas and maintained connection with his shipmates until very recently. Mannie was a kind and gentle person. He was an intrepid soul who loved to explore new ways of doing things. His many businesses included manufacturing hardwood charcoal at kilns in western Mass. He was a man ahead of his time. He loved to dance, was a nature lover and avid gardner and was always happiest captaining his boat on lake Winnipesaukee or sharing his home , Wittcliff, at the edge of the sea in Ocho Rios, Jamaica.
