James A. Manack

March 19, 1932 — September 27, 2023

James Anthony Manack Sr., 91, of Perryopolis, passed away Wednesday, September 27, 2023.  Born March 19, 1932 in Belle Vernon, PA he was the son of the late Steve and Helen Arva Manack.  A resident of Perryopolis for the past 53 years, Mr. Manack was a member of St. John The Baptist RC Church, Perryopolis and was retired from Municipal Authority of Belle Vernon.  "Pap", as he was lovingly referred to, was a remarkable man who leaves behind a legacy of unconditional love, unwavering generosity, boyish good looks ;), and an exceptional sense of humor. To know him was to love him, to love him was easy, and to live without him will be hard. However, for the ones he leaves behind, we take comfort in knowing he`s reunited with those who went before him, resting in the Eternal and Loving arms of God.

He is survived by son Mark Manack of Perryopolis, daughter & son in law Christine & Randy Hutchinson of Frankfort, KY; 11 grandchildren Nicole, Natalie, Carrie, Jessica, Jennifer, Mark, Colin, Megan, Charles, Brett & Brita; 16 great grandchildren; sister Margaret Weaver of Belle Vernon and sister in law Loretta Manack of Belle Vernon.

He is preceded in death by his wife Joanne Malatin Manack; son James Anthony Manack Jr.; daughter Rebecca Gira; two brothers John Manack, Joseph Manack and two sisters Helen Zolock and Catherine 'Sissy' Matson.
