Gary Donn Manning

July 20, 1953 – March 27, 2024


“A man of great faith”



Gary Donn Manning was born on July 20, 1953 in Oklahoma City, OK.  He passed away on March 27, 2024 at Providence Regional Medical Center in Everett, WA after having a heart attack at home. After 30 years of marriage, he is survived by his wife, Carla, two step-sons, Josh (Adonica) and Dave (Michelle), two step-grandsons David and Jaxson, his sister, Doritta, his brother Randall (Diana), his nieces Becca (Ray) and Rachael (Mitch), and his nephews Troy (Charlene) and Steven (Laura).


Gary loved God, family, fishing, and biking, in that order.  He also had a love for Christian music.  He shared his faith with everyone around him and always prayed for his family. He is now pain free in the presence of our Lord and Savior. Gary would say, “It’s all about the heart. God wants to change our heart daily, make it new, and die to self. You can tell what’s in a person’s heart by what they say.”

Create in me a clean heart…. Psalm 51:10a


He will be deeply missed, but not for long….. “When we all get to heaven, what a day of rejoicing that will be….” (lyrics by E Hewitt, melody by E Wilson).
