    Manny Garcia Has Passed

    Receive notification from Kristina that Manny has passed away tonight.

    He fought very hard but is now at peace and struggling no more.

    God Bless Manny and his Family!

    Manny was a great guy ...would always take time to say hello and ask how you were doing.

    I am sure this will be very hard on the kids ..... hope they will still come and shoot a few matches....

    Will keep them in my thoughts..

    Absolutely No Doubt Manny's Now in Heaven...

    We absolutely lost one of the great ones to ever grace our BR game with his presence, care and friendship.... We were all praying he could recover and get well.

    I'm sure, through his countless kind acts of charity and his tireless care for all of us shooters, Manny has earned a very high place in heaven.

    May he finally rest in peace...

    Prayers go out to Manny and his family.

    God Bless Manny and his Family

    Manny was the greatest man I’ve ever known, standing all of 5 ft 3 inches tall, he was a giant. He selflessly cared for so many people! When he heard my wife was having some difficulty with her pregnancy, Manny was all over it! He was on the phone with us and our doctors making sure my wife and son were getting the best care possible. That’s who he was!

    If I choose words to described Manny it would be kind, compassionate, gentle and caring! Over the years at Benchrest matches Manny was known for conducting “sick call”! Over Manny’s Benchrest career (just at matches) he had seen/treated over 3000 patients!

    Doctor, Husband, Father, Competitor! I say Manny was one, if not THE most respected men in Benchrest!

    God bless Manny and God bless his family!

    The world is just a little sadder without him in it!

    I never met Manny,but judging from these comments,I, deeply feel the loss.

    "The ultimate measure of a man is the content of his character" (MLK)

    May he rest in Peace.

    Manny, RIP, I say the words, but I don't mean them, even their true. You have unselfishly given "SO MUCH" to the shooters.
