Condolences

  1. I knew Mark through work. I am a vendor from Perretta Graphics that sold him some equipment for the press about 12 years ago. Mark was an incredibly loyal customer, and an ethical businessperson.

    On Sunday, I got an e-mail telling me about his passing. All of us at Perretta Graphics will miss him. Mark was such a friendly guy. When one of my potential customers would call him for a reference, Mark always invited them to visit Bryan. That is just good, old fashioned Texas hospitality!

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you today.

  2. My thoughts and prayers to Mark’s family; may the Lord bless and comfort you during this time. Mark will be truly missed by all. John

  3. My deepest condolences to the Manning Family. Mark was always a gracious host whenever I was working at The Eagle.

  4. Mark’s passing is heartbreaking, and his work family sure is missing him and his big smile. He is well loved. Thoughts and prayers are with the Manning family.

    “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.” Psalm 147:3-5

    Love,

  5. My sympathies go out to Mark’s family and the staff at the Bryan Eagle. I knew Mark because he was “my printer.” I could call and ask him anything. He was the sweetest guy, always willing to work with me, understanding of time constraints, helping me understand his business. I cry just knowing that he is gone from all of our lives, but I will remember him always. Such a wonderful guy; I wish I could have done more to help him.

  6. I met Mark as a salesman for US Ink, and had the great pleasure of working with him for several years. He was truly a fun loving person, loyal customer, and someone I could also call a friend.
    From the first day I met him, Mark’s dedication to his trade was unique, and I will personnally miss working with him in the years to come.
    My heart felt condolences go out to all his family members and close friends.

  7. I met mark several years ago while doing some printing business with him here at the Austin American-Statesman. He was always professional and pleasure to work with. He will be missed dearly. Our prayers go out to his family and friends.

  8. When we started printed our Giddings newspaper at the Eagle about 5 years ago, Mark Manning made sure that everything went smoothly in the transition that also included getting our staff trained at our office. When there were any problems with the print job, he was always willing and ready to make it right. I’ve been in the newspaper business for over 50 years and Mark impressed me with his professionalism, kindness and gentle nature. I will miss our conversations and emails, which we regularly exchanged as we both worked to make our product better. Whenever I complimented Mark on an especially good print job, he would always give the credit to his printing staff and tell me he would pass it on to them. It’s a very sad time for me and I know it’s an even sadder time for Mark’s family and his newspaper production and printing staff. My condolences to all who knew and loved Mark Manning.

  9. My husband works at The Eagle and they are all very saddened about losing Mark. My husband said Mark was a great person. He didn’t act stuck up just because he had money. He said Mark would give you the shirt off of his bad if you needed it. Our hearts & prayers go out to all who knew Mark.

  10. I met mark almost 30 years ago. He started working at the Eagle as a mailroom helper. Just like I did. He was always friendly and happy go lucky. He got discouraged early on and wanted to quit. I talk him out of it. I told him to hang in there. Things would get better. And they did. It didn’t take long for Mark to move up the ladder. He had drive, determnation, and a desire to learn all he could about the newspaper business. Over the many years that I worked with and for Mark, he was always a friend first and a boss when he had to be. Many times I got discouraged and wanted to quit. But as always, Mark was there to lend an ear. To be a counselor. To comfort. He had a way of making things alright. We ( Mark, Bob, Bill and I ) used to play cards after work. Played pool on the weekends. Played music. Hang out at Marks on the weekend. Horse playing around the swimming pool. Mark was one hellova drummer. Bob and I went to many gigs and watched Mark, Shawn, Blaze and Kenny do their stuff on stage. Great memories. The more I write the more I want to cry. I love you Mark. I’ll miss you very much.

  11. I never met Mark in person but we had lots of conversations over the phone and was always very genuine and ALWAYS willing to help me in my business. There were a couple of times I was disappointed and upset because a page in my publication didn’t print right but when Mark would answer the phone to talk to me I could never act mad. Mark always made it right and we had great conversations. My wife and I forever will be grateful to Mark and we offer our most sincere condolences to his family, co-workers and friends. See you in heaven Mark. Thank you!

  12. My dear Manning family,
    I feel such sadness to hear about Mark. I remember being at the Manning’s on Fidelity for ice cream socials and fun times and watching Shawn and Mark running around as little kids playing and so full of life. I know your hearts must be broken over the loss of your son and brother and husband and nieces and nephews of Mark. I am so very sorry.
    kay rowe and family
