I’m not sure how many of you know that Carl Mani (K7CE) passed away.
He was a former member of our radio club. He also donated items for the club auctions.
I think it would be nice if our secretary picked up a condolence card to mail to his widow which the club could sign at the January meeting. I would assume that his address could be tracked down through either John (KD8MQ) or Tony (KD8BBK).
His obituary reads as follows:
LOUISVILLE – Carl J. Mani, age 74, of Louisville, formerly of Alliance, passed away at 4:42 p.m. Thursday, December 18, 2019 at Mercy Medical Center.
He was born November 20, 1945, in Alliance, Ohio to the late Clarence J. and Muriel E. (McPherson) Mani.
A 1963 graduate of Marlington High School, Carl was employed as a communications technician with AEP until his retirement.
He was a member of the Louisville Sportsman Club and an active Ham Radio operator and member of the ARRL. He also enjoyed drag racing and was a member of the International Hot Rod Association.
Survivors include his wife, Yanyan Mani of Louisville, whom he married in 1997; daughter, Jennifer Mani of Waynesburg; and sisters, Marleen (Casey) Grant and Susan Mani, both of Alliance.
In addition to his parents, Carl was preceded in death by his brother, Dale Clarence Mani; and a niece, Shannon.
Services will be held at 3 p.m., Saturday, December 28, 2019 at Cassaday-Turkle-Christian Funeral Home. Friends may call from 1-3 p.m., prior to the service.
Memorial contributions may be made to the charity of the donor’s choice.
