Patrick Joseph Manley

Patrick Joseph Manley, 70, died Wednesday, April 4, 2012 in Santa Cruz, Calif. Following a year-long illness.
Patrick was born Nov. 29, 1941 in Coeur d‘ Alene, Idaho.
Patrick married Linda-Anne Lehrman on June 23, 1978, soon after which they settled on Whidbey Island, Wash. At that time Patrick and Linda began studying the Bible, becoming Jehovah’s Witnesses, and enjoying the friends and activities associated in their spiritual endeavors. Patrick loved the truth he found in the Bible and endeavored to live his life by it.
Patrick was frequently to be found fishing on the island at Bush Point with various fishing friends, and landed many a good catch of salmon and steelhead. After more than 20 years of island living Patrick and Linda relocated to Lakeview. Patrick had a deep love for the high desert and enjoyed hiking up around the high lakes with his friend, Bill and his beloved cocker spaniel, Tessa, between work assignments.
His work as a construction manager took him around the world, to such places as Africa, the Middle East, the Arctic, Antarctic, as well as assignments in the U.S. He was outgoing and personable, making many friends wherever he went. While in various African countries Patrick had the happy experience of interesting some people in Bible study, attending meetings at the local Kingdom Hall, and enjoying association with his African spiritual brothers.
All through his life Patrick loved the outdoors, was an accomplished horseman, and enjoyed the game of tennis with friends in Lakeview, with whom he would get his exercise. He also frequented Honkers and will be missed by many there. Patrick was a gift to those in his life who knew and loved him and will be missed by all.
He is survived by his loving wife of 34 years, Linda-Anne Manley; sons Shawn, Aaron and Derek; daughter Leigh-Anne; grandchildren Zoë, Sylvie, Sabine, Oskar, Jeremy, Josh, Kasen, Kyle, Joshua and Cory.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, May 12, 2012 at 2 p.m. at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, 1520 N. 2nd St., Lakeview. A reception will follow immediately at the Western Villa Recreational Center, 1800 N. 4th St., Lakeview.
