Obituary

Joseph B. Manley, 95, of Southington, passed away peacefully on Christmas morning, December 25, 2019. He was the beloved husband of 70 years to the late Edith B. Manley. Joe was born December 22, 1924 in Lewiston, Maine, the oldest son of the late Albert and Helen Manley.

He proudly served his country with the 147th Infantry Regiment on Iwo Jima and Okinowa and in 1951 he joined the Air Force and served during the Korean War. After the service, Joe went to work for United Technologies and retired as a Lieutenant on the guard force after 32 years. Joe lived in Meriden most of his adult life before moving to The Orchards at Southington a few years ago.

Joe was fondly known as Big Daddy and the Mayor of Clinton Street. He enjoyed traveling with his wife throughout the United States, taking their bikes with them wherever they went. He belonged to the Silver Squares and Cheshire Cats square dancing clubs and spent many hours volunteering at the Meriden Senior Center. He was a wonderful photographer and took great pride in his flower gardens.

Joe is survived by his daughters Karla Aniskiewicz (Charlie), Pam Manley, and Tina Manley who lovingly took care of him the past two years. He is also survived by his grandchildren Dawn White (David), Michael Aniskiewicz (Jennifer), Lynn Aniskiewicz, and Peter Henderson (Arisa); and great-grandchildren Kristen, Jenna and Stacie White, Sydney and Erica Aniskiewicz and Avery Aniskiewicz. Joe was predeceased by his wife Edie, his daughter Patricia Terrio and son-in-law Bruce Terrio, his daughter-in-law Sharon Knox-Manley, his brother Ted Manley and his sister Betty Sise.

Friends and family are invited to pay their last respects and attend a memorial service on Saturday, January 4, 2020, from 1 to 3 p.m. with the memorial service to start at 2 p.m. at the John J. Ferry & Sons Funeral Home, 88 East Main Street, Meriden. Burial will be private.

Special thanks to Ginny and Katie for all their support. Joe truly enjoyed their many visits.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Joe's Family! I got to know Joe throughout the years as I did landscaping work for several of his neighbors and when Joe wasn't feeling up to it I would take care of his lawn as well. I always enjoyed hearing Joe's stories. He truly was the watchdog of the neighborhood and will be missed!!!
