George Manno’s obituary (1947-2021) – Holladay, UT

George J. Mannos

1947 ~ 2021

Holladay, UT — George J. Mannos Jr. died peacefully in his sleep on September 30th in Holladay, Utah.

Born on May 14, 1947 to George James Mannos and Mary P. Mannos. Preceded by the death of both his parents, his grandparents, and many loving aunts, uncles and cousins.

He is survived by Dean G. Mannos and Gail in Midway, Utah, Kathy and Les Lake in Mesa, Az. Nieces and nephews Anna Mannos Crabtree, Jason and Mary Ellis, in Park City, Catherine and Christopher Lake, Anabelle and Madeline Ellis, Tessa and Alison Crabtree. Also many relatives who loved George as much as he loved her.

Georgie defied adversity. He climbed every single obstacle and laughed at those who said it wouldn’t happen. He taught us acceptance, humility, compassion, tolerance and the power of humor to the friends and relatives who knew him best. But above all, unconditional love. He loved every single person who came into his life. Honestly, if this world had more georgies it would be a much better place to live. We hope that he now sings, plays the piano and harmonica.

A very special thank you goes to the Turn Community and their longstanding, caring employees. And Toni Smith, his guardian angel. Their love and devotion gave Georgie a fuller life.

The funeral will take place on Tuesday, October 5, in the Greek Orthodox Church of Prophet Elias at 10:00 a.m., 5335 S. Highland Drive. With a tour of the Holladay ~ Cottonwood Memorial on Monday evening 4th at 6:00 am. 4670 South Highland Drive.

Instead of flowers, donations on George’s behalf can be made to either the Greater Salt Lake City Greek Orthodox Church or Turn Community Services, 7017 South 700 East, Midvale, Utah 84047.
