I met Manny in 1982 at Philadelphia Naval Hospital, where we were both performed our 2 weeks of summer duty as Navy physician assistants. We bonded quickly with each each of the PAs stationed at the hospital, and became stronger friends over the years. We attended Combat Casualty Care Course at Ft. Bullis, TX in 1984, then served together in Desert Storm, and numerous training exercises through our careers. Manny was a highly competent surgical PA, well respected and liked by his peers. To say that he “savored life,” is nearly an understatement in every respect. He treasured his friendships and the special bonds to his comrades in arms. I am sorely missing him, and will hold his memory sacred. RIP Manny.

This is a sad time in my life. To lose a close friend that I met during Desert Storm. I am proud to have served with Manny. Since then we stayed in contact and the last two years I traveled from Washington State to come to see and spend some time with him and our other Navy brothers. This summer I spent good quality time with him at his house in New Jersey and in Morrisville. Manny was a very special friend. Very cordial during my visits. I thank God for the short time that we had together. I will cherish them in my memory forever. Please accept my condolences from the bottom of my heart to the whole family. He will be missed. May he Rest In Peace.

I have known Manny for a number of years and will definitely miss him. Manny was a true friend and always willing to help you . Manny was a gracious host and his Physician Assistant Navy buddies can attest to that especial at the " Beach House " in Egg Harbor, NJ. We all had a good time on these gatherings he had together over the last 3 years. I am too lucky to have known Manny , I will truly miss him and offer my condolences to the family at this time. 1
