Scott Alan Manz was born in Haverford, Pennsylvania at the end of a beautiful May Day in 1970 to Lynda (nee Montgomery) and Greg Manz. Scotty departed on May 13, 2020, having just celebrated his 50th birthday on May 1.
In addition to his parents, Scott is survived by his daughter Kelsea and grandson Conner, his fiancée Shannon Corropolese DeMarco and her son Nicholas, and his sister Kirsten Manz Brkaric, brother-in-law Mario Brkaric, and their children Kaitlyn, Gavin, and Mario.
Scott also leaves behind his extended family, the Hogan's, Koch's, Montgomery's, and Wehr's.
As a graduate of Ursinus College and the University of Pennsylvania, his many friends, relatives, and family loved his fun and charismatic personality. He was an adventurous Renaissance man, possessing a keen intellect and wit, while at the same time skilled in the manual arts, among them, painting, woodworking, and healing. Many an injured animal was nursed back to health by his tender care. He loved camping, fishing, the sunshine, and the outdoors in general. Indoors he loved cooking, music, entertaining, clowning, and taking care of his own canine menagerie. And all this he did with his contagious joie de vivre.
His recent 50th birthday celebration (a corona-style drive-by and Zoom get-together) was a testament to the love that he inspired. Family and friends from all chapters of Scotty's life came to celebrate this milestone. Scott will be deeply missed by all who loved him.
At long last, but too soon, Scott is at peace. He has been healed of a lifelong struggle with his health, accepting and fearless in his battle, his legacy to all. Let us honor his memory by living his legacy.
Rest well, our beloved son, father, grandfather, fiancée, brother, uncle, and friend until we meet again.
