Jimmy Manlove used to wrestle "the mighty midgets", Phil Evans and me, on the front lawn on Oakdale Terrrace in the 1950s. He was a good opponent and was twice as big as we were, thus the 2 to 1 advantage. Been a friend for 60+ years. Sorry to see him go. Best wishes, Jimmy; and condolences to his family.

Condolences to all who knew and loved Jimmy Manlove. He was a good friend to all who knew him and enjoyed many things in life like fishing. He developed a real talent of painting our beautiful southern surroundings. I was blessed to have met Jimmy about 20 years ago when we took a class together at church. We quickly formed a lasting friendship as we shared life experiences and learned how thru the grace of God, even sinners like us could have everlasting life if we just repent and ask for forgiveness. Rest in the fact that Jimmy will be busy serving others in heaven and will be there to help all his friends when it is our turn to transition from this earthly life. God bless you Jimmy and thanks for sharing God's love with me these last 20 years.

Sorry to hear of losIng Jimmy. Although we lost contact with each other, he was a older(3 years) friend growing up in Suffolk. His parents were very good friends of my parents living 4 houses down the street. In Suffolk, everybody knew everybody.
