Bryan Kane Manley
April 1951 ~ October 2020
Bryan Kane Manley, 69, of Modesto, California, passed away, on October 15th, 2020.
Bryan was born in Burbank, California on April 6, 1951 to William and Marihelen Manley. He graduated from Downey High School in 1969. After, Bryan attended UC Santa Barbara and CSU Stanislaus where he obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in History.
In 1967, Bryan met his high school sweetheart, who later became his honey, his boobette, his wife, Nancy Manley (Bauman). Bryan loved his wife more than anything and they recently celebrated 49 years of marriage. Even while apart during his hospitalization, he shared that he could not go a day without talking to the love of his life, his Rosie.
Bryan and Nancy had three children. Sarah Komar (45), Amber Wethern (42), and Travis Manley (36). Bryan loved his children almost as much as he loved his wife. If the kids had an academic or sporting event, you could find him, or hear him, in the stands or coaching on the sidelines. Until his passing, Bryan checked on his children, asked about their spouses, children and lives. He was always invested and took pride in his children, their lives and accomplishments. Anyone who met him, knew that he loved nothing more than being with his family.
Bryan was a banker working for Guarantee Savings, Glendale Federal, Cal-Fed and Citibank for over 30 years. During his career, Bryan created many lifelong friendships because just like his family, Bryan cared about the people he met. When he wasn’t with his family or running the bank, he was an active member of the 20/30 club, Kiwanas, and the SOS Club. Bryan also coached youth soccer, little league and youth basketball. One of his favorite activities was playing Strat-O-Matic baseball, which he played for over 30 years.
Bryan is preceded in death by his parents, William and Marihelen Manley, his twin sisters, Diana Reynolds (Manley), and Dana McManus (Manley), as well as his lifelong best friend and dog Elvis.
He is survived by his loving wife Nancy, his children, Sarah (John) Komar, Amber (Josh) Wethern, and Travis (Alexis) Manley. He is also survived by his bunch of loving grandchildren, Sadie-Anne (TJ) Holley, Kenneth Padilla, Andrew Wethern, Londyn Manley, Mason Wethern, Addisen Padilla, Nicholas Wethern, Jett Manley, Caiden Padilla, Liam Wethern, and Hailey Miller. He is also survived by his dog, Precious.
A private celebration of life will be held at a later date.
