Bruce Manwaring, 59, passed away September 25, 2021. He was born February 22, 1962, in Massillon, Ohio to Louise and the late Robert Manwaring.
Bruce was an exceptional father, son, brother, and friend. He was someone you could always count on. Bruce enjoyed his work and genuinely cared about his customers. He raised two grateful, strong, and independent daughters alongside their mother (Beth Manwaring). His daughters were the center of his world, and he took great pride in the women he raised them to be. If Bruce wasn’t working or lending a helping hand to anyone in need, you would find him fishing, hunting, and constantly working on new projects around his home and on his boat. He provided his family and friends with a lifetime of love that will continue to live on even after his passing.
Bruce is survived by his loving daughters, Caitlyn (Daniel Massey) and Lindsay (Nicholas Herbert) Manwaring; mother, Louise Manwaring; brother, Joe (Rose) Manwaring; sisters, Ann (Neil) Fritz, Linda Manwaring, Mary Beth (Patrick) Cavalier, Laurel (Tony Stopar) Korth; and dear friends Roy (Susan) Brown and Tom (Andrea) Funk. He was also adored by many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and close friends along the way.
