Manuel De Jesus Gonzalez III
JULY 9, 1976 – DECEMBER 17, 2020

Manuel (Manny) Gonzalez was born on July 9, 1976 and entered into the eternal care of Jesus Christ on December 17, at the age of 44. Manny had a profound impact on his family as a deeply committed and ever-present father, husband, son, and brother. Those who had the privilege to meet him were sure to be positively influenced by his authenticity, compassion, patience, caring, friendliness and his sense of humor. He consistently put the needs of others before his own, selflessly giving all he had to improve the lives of his family and friends. As a devoted Catholic, Manny understood the importance of his faith, and it is this same faith that enables him to now walk alongside our savior.

Manny is survived by his wife, Melissa, his children, Bianca, Nick, and Sophie, his parents Manuel and Herlinda Gonzalez, and his siblings Linda Wasielewski '97, Nancy Barrientos, and Alex Gonzalez '03.
