Everybody loved Manny! he was a great guy with a strong work ethic and a great sense of humor. He also was very thoughtful and always wanted to know how you were doing and how your family was doing. He also wanted to be the first one to a fire call so when he was driving the fire truck you'd better pull over or move over if the fire engine was coming your way. My sincere condolences to his family. Thanks for everything Manny! We'll miss you. Rest In Peace.
