Kenneth loved exploring, fixing things and tinkering. He was an experienced lumber jack and tree trimmer by trade. A risk taker, Kenneth was true “Cajun hillbilly” known for cooking, being barefoot, lounging below a shade tree and working in mechanics. He loved his dog Red. A simple man with a good heart, Kenneth will be dearly missed.
He was preceded in death by his mother, Elenore Anita (Trosclaire) Brock-Faux; his father, Kenneth Eugene Manning, Sr.; and a brother, Kenneth Lee Manning.
Kenneth is survived by son Kenneth Lee Manning of Topeka, Kansas; daughter Angel Manning of Springfield, Missouri; daughter Kendra Manning of Forsyth, Missouri; son Brandon Dick of Kirbyville, Missouri; daughter Breana Dick of Kirbyville, Missouri; eight grandchildren; sister Connie Bernard and husband Mark of Denham Springs, Louisiana; sister Cherie Salazaar and spouse Heather Cooley of Pennsylvania; sister Charmagne Belote and husband Chris of Forsyth, Missouri; brother Thad Brock of Fontana, California; sister Christie Brock of Pleasant Hope, Missouri; and several nieces and nephews.
Memorial contributions in memory of Kenneth may be made to the family. A private family gathering will be held at a later time.
