Dave Manns, son of Joseph and Emma (Laban) Manns, passed on Wednesday, March 15, 2023 at Forbes Regional Hospital. He was the "love of her life" to Elaine (Leshnock) Manns for 60 years. They were always seen holding hands. He is survived by his sons, David J., Jeffrey J., Jason S. (Amy) and Keith (Nicole); brother, Leonard (Jackie) Manns; sisters, Jo Marie (Bob) Wozniak, Judi (Gerry) Hoover; and step granddaughter, Maddie. Dave was a veteran of the US Army and worked for the US Postal Service for 46 years walking many miles delivering mail. He made many friends there with his bubbling personality. Dave loved to read and really enjoyed music, especially the "oldies" and singing along with them. Visitations will be private. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Saturday at 10 a.m. in St. Agnes Church, North Huntingdon. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the American Diabetes Association in memory of Dave. Arrangements made by James W.
