Francis A. Manuel
Francis A. "Frank" Manuel, of Hartland, passed away on Sunday, March 22, 2020, after a short illness.
Frank was born on the family farm in Hartland, December 6, 1938, son of the late Salvatore "Sam" and Catherine (Saluzzo) Manuel. He graduated from Roy-Hart and lived in the Hartland/Middleport area all of his life.
Frank was employed at Harrison Radiator, Division of GM, for 30 years. He was always involved with farming and after retirement, grew potatoes and garlic as his "second career", running a farm stand on Ridge Road.
Frank enjoyed riding Harley's in his younger days and had a story or two that he would proudly share about his "adventures". He also enjoyed fishing, camping and spending time with family and friends, and his spoiled dog (usually a border collie).
Frank, with the help of friends and family, built his own home where he loved to spend time on the patio with his wife, Dona, watching the wildlife and the garlic grow.
Frank was predeceased by his wife of 54 years, Dona, and his sister, Josephine Roberts.
He is survived by his children, Richard (Karen) Manuel, Samuel (Donna) Manuel and Elizabeth (Michael) Schaal; many nephews and nieces; grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Also survived by loyal neighbors and great friends including his best friend, "Jack" Walker and wife, Marilyn.
There will be no calling hours. A private graveside service will take place at West Ridgeway Cemetery. The family suggests in lieu of cards or flowers, donations in Frank's memory may be made to Niagara Hospice Arrangements are in the care of Cooper Funeral Home, 215 W. Center St., Medina.

Worked with Frank for years at Harrisons. Good man and fellow worker with a vise grip handshake from cutting cabbage he said. God Bless Frank and his family.
