Jack was born November 9, 1942 in Clinton, MA, the son of John and Helen Manning of Fitchburg, MA. He attended Notre Dame Catholic High School and graduated from the University of Connecticut. He met his wife Nancy at his first job in the insurance business and married and relocated to Kansas City in 1965. He worked in the commercial insurance industry for over 40 years in the Kansas City area.

Jack was a devoted husband, father, grandfather and father-in-law. He was the consummate sports fan coaching his son’s youth basketball and baseball teams and attending his grandson’s practices and games. Jack could always be seen with his lawn chair in the outfield before the team arrived. He always had the stats and an opinion about all aspects of the game.  Jack was competitive at everything he did whether it was golf, cards, youth sports or his beloved Boston Red Sox. He and Nancy were members of St Joseph Catholic Church for over 40 years.

He was preceded in death by his parents John and Helen Manning of Fitchburg, MA and is survived by his wife of 55 years Nancy Manning, two children and their spouses, Mike and Chrissy Manning, grandchildren McKenzie and Cole Manning,  Christine and Brian Christiansen, step-granddaughter Izzy.

We fondly remember Jack's delightful Massachusetts accent...We had many fun conversations about his growing up in the greater Boston area. We loved Jack's stories and memoirs especially one about a trip he and his high school friends took to a Red Sox game at Fenway Park. Jack loved sports and was quite a competitor in board games and ping-pong. He always considered himself an exceptional judge regarding the competence of referees and coaches. He loved to watch his grandson's and granddaughter's teams no matter what the season. We will miss him at the special family events we all enjoyed. May God bless him and keep him in the palm of His hand.
