In Loving Memory

Clarence Franklin Manley

Clarence Franklin Manley aka “Frank” was born on November 3rd, 1938, and died on September 19th, 2023. He was predeceased by his parents Clarence and Nelly Manley, his daughter Cindy, and his wife of almost 47 years Anne Manley and most of his 11 sisters. Frank had 3 children from his first marriage that unfortunately he did not stay in contact with Frankie, Matthew, and Cindy as well as grandkids and great grandkids. He then had 4 stepchildren with his second marriage. Donna (John), Maggie (John), Stanley and Gail (Greg). Grandkids Jackie, Julian, Alex, Kent, Johnny, Daniel, Krystyna. Great-grandkids Hayley, Sylus, Kevin, and Kayleigh. There were many strains throughout our lives with him but he was clearly loved by many. He loved to joke and laugh – normally the life of the party. He struggled a lot in his last few years with his deteriorating health and thankfully is at peace with no more suffering.

Donations in Frank’s memory may be made to the Alzheimer’s Society of BC.

    Dad and I had our ups and downs while I was growing up. I honestly would not have said I loved him. Yet the years passed and we (I believe) found a respect for each other. I still used his name Frank, when I spoke with him. The years passed some more and one day I woke, I realized there was still friction between us.

    At that point I knew this was not what I wanted. There was only one thing I could do – forgive him for everything he had done against me – real or imagined. Then I had to forgive myself for not doing it sooner. In a very short time I realized I didn’t just respect him, I loved him.

    It was then that when I left their home for mine, I would tell him I loved them both. Over the phone I would also tell him I loved him.

    In the last 3 days of Dad’s life I had the honour to sit and chat with him. Asleep or awake I chatted and told him how I felt. We did clear the air between us. When I left the care home on his last day, the last words he heard from me were, “I love you Dad.”

    Rest In Peace Dad
