Charles Kent McManus, a cherished husband, loving father, and proud grandfather, uncle and brother, died unexpectedly at the age of 76 on December 28, 2018.  He is survived by his devoted wife of 28 years, Cheryl Preston McManus; his three children, Mary (Ken) Nash, Matt (Michelle) McManus and Clark Preston; his brother, Matthew “Dick” McManus; four grandchildren, Gavin, Margaret, Connor and Meghan; and many other relatives and friends. He is preceded in death by his adoring mother and father, Margaret and Matthew “Bud” McManus and his dear sister-in-law, Gail McManus.

He was born in Gary, Indiana, grew up in Park Forest, Illinois, and attended Rich Township High School  (class of 1960) where he enjoyed playing football.  He went on to earn a Bachelor of Arts from Harvard University (’64) and a Master’s Degree from Harvard Business School (’66).  He served in the Army National Guard in the early ‘70s and went on to hold many positions in real estate, mortgage insurance, and variable annuities. He later worked for the CA Housing Finance Agency.  In retirement, he became active in local and national politics and enjoyed traveling with his wife.  Above all else, Chuck was a devoted family man who was known for his quick wit, generosity, and engaging personality.
