Emile Manneh

July 08, 1968 - August 21, 2014


Our beloved brother Emile had a severe irrecoverable brain hemorrhage on Wednesday 08/20/2014. We were stunned (& still are) especially after a successful second heart surgery to fix a congenital condition three and a half weeks earlier.

Emile was born in Beirut, Lebanon in 1968. As a child he was gifted with a talent to pick up languages at a very young age. As a young adult and even during the Lebanese War, he was as cheerful and friendly as ever. As an adult, Emile became known as ‘Al Mukhtar’ or the ‘Mayor’. Emile was a friendly face around town. With his lovable smile, he greeted everyone even if it was a stranger. Everyone knew him and if not they became to know him. He permanently moved to California in 2007, then immediately made friends and joined a bowling team. He loved to bowl; his last trophy was 2 months ago. He loved to play with his nephews and niece. He was a kind, innocent, caring man who loved dancing. Emile knew how to shake it on the floor.

Emile was preceded in death by both of our parents, John I. Manneh and Yvette J. Manneh who passed away in 2011. God bless their souls.

Emile is survived by three brothers (Johnny, Michael, & Marwan), two sisters-in-law (Nayla & Talla), two nephews and a niece (Andrew, Gabriel, and Milana).

  1. To my dearest younger brother Emile (a.k.a: Emilio, a.k.a: Abu Anwar),
    You left a BIG hole in our hearts. We tried to keep you with us a little longer but lost you to the wish of the Lord. You are in a better place in heaven with Mama (Mom) and Baba (Dad). I know you all three are looking down on us.
    We miss and love you all.
    Your brother Johnny, sister-in-law Nayla and nephew Andrew

  2. Johnny,

    My heart just broke in two. Emile was the most loving and sweet hearted person I’ve had the pleasure of working with. His positive attitude was always such a ray of sunshine in all of our lives. His compliments would just turn a bad day around for all of us who were blessed to know him. How lucky he was to be born into a family of brothers who stuck together and supported one another in this world.

    I left a message for Joseph asking him to call me today when he has some time set aside to discuss a personal matter. I know Joseph always regarded Emile so very highly. Please keep me updated if there will be arrangements for a memorial service to pay tribute to all of Emile’s wonderful memories.

    My condolences,

  3. Dear Johnny, Nayla, Andrew, Michael, Marwan, Tala and family,

    It is with great sorrow we read this morning our son Issa’s email announcing the sad departure of Emile towards his creator. We should all look at this event, though sad in itself, as a divine blessing towards the deceased himself in sparing him from suffering, particularly that we learnt that he spent his last two days in a coma. It is hard though on you all. We feel with you and share your sorrow. Emile, for us, remains as the jolly fellow who always wore a smile and loved to socialize. He will be remembered with fondness. Andrew will miss him in a particular manner as they were so close. May his soul rest in peace.

    We shall remember him in our prayers. With our sincere condolences to you all,

    Tony and Eileen Nesnas
