Richard S. Manning August 26, 1931 ~ July 24, 2019 On Wednesday, July 24, 2019, Richard S. Manning, our loving Husband and Father of three children, passed away at the age of 87 from heart failure. Richard was born August 26, 1931 to Thelma Sizemore and LeRoy G. Manning of Clearfield, Utah where he grew up. Richard married Dolores Littleford on September 17, 1954 and moved to Roy, Utah where they raised their family. Richard was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He graduated from Davis High School, served in the U.S. Airforce during the Korean War and then graduated from Weber College while working for Hill Air Force Base in the simulator program. He retired in 1986 at the age of 55. As a young man and because he had a love of horses he worked for the Browning Ranch company. His love of horses continued throughout his life. His many stories of these adventures captivated the minds of his children and grandchildren. Camping, fishing & hunting played a big part of his life. He also loved to golf but most of all he loved to travel via motor home with Dolores visiting many locations around the U.S. with friends and siblings. He enjoyed being a member of the Good Sam’s Club. Highest on his list of priorities would be his wife, children and grandchildren. Richard was an unusually kind and loving person. Very grounded and compassionate, he gained high praise and much respect at home, at work and wherever he ventured. His soft sense of humor gained him many friends for life. He was and will always be an example to his family of honest, fair and loving treatment of others. We have never heard him speak ill of another. Richard is survived by his wife Dolores (Littleford) Manning, daughter Nanette (Roger) McFarland, daughter Tammy (Kevin) Higley, son Greg (Tammy) Manning and sister Ruth (Melvin) Stauffer, 12 grandchildren and 20 great grandchildren.
