Harry Arthur Manning

Harry Arthur Manning passed away on March 28, 2013; this thoughtful and loving man is sorely missed by his family and friends.

Age 72, Harry died at the Zablocki V.A. Medical Center in Milwaukee due to complications related to ALS, which he was diagnosed with in late December. True to his nature, he faced the disease with quiet courage. The medical center’s nurses, physicians and other staff provided extraordinary care and support during his stay.

He is survived by Mary, his loving and spirited wife of nearly 50 years. He is also survived by daughter Wendy (Dan Wiegmann) Manning, of Bowling Green, Ohio, and son John (Andrea) Steiner-Manning, of St. Paul, Minn.; two granddaughters; sister Lorraine Duffy of Charles City, Iowa; and other relatives.

A resident of Mt. Pleasant, Minn. and Racine, Minn. for decades, Harry was born in Decorah, Iowa on Nov. 29, 1940. He was the son of the late Arthur and Hilda (Née: Roberts) Manning, who farmed near Kendalville, Iowa. After graduating from high school in Harmony, Minn., Harry served in the U.S. Army between 1959 and 1962; he was stationed in Korea where he worked in intelligence. Back in the States, he met and married Mary Moe in 1963 and went on to complete his B.A. from Iowa State University. After moving to the Chicago area and then to Racine to work for Walker Manufacturing, he completed his M.B.A. from UW-Milwaukee. His marketing career with Walker spanned more than 30 years and included a five-year posting with his family in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. He also worked as a consultant and adjunct faculty member.

Upon retirement, Harry became deeply involved in racing sports cars. With support from his wife and friends, he raced at tracks across the Midwest up until last summer. He won many races and ranked among the top in the region. Other hobbies included travel, gardening and flying four-seater airplanes. His community involvement included steadfast support for Covenant Presbyterian Church as well as service since 2008 as a Mt. Pleasant trustee. In recent years he cherished time spent with his granddaughters, who appreciate how much he has loved them and helped them grow.

A memorial service celebrating Harry’s life was held at Covenant Presbyterian Church on Tuesday, April 2 with Rev. Victoria Millar and Rev. Melanie Hammond Clark co-officiating. His remains will be interred in Burr Oak, Iowa at a la .....
