Went to Union with George and after that went in the Military and never seen him again, but he was the kind of person you don’t forget over time. God Bless him and may he rest in the Lord’s hands.

I look at his picture and it’s like awe Ice. I am fortunate to have known Mr. Manning from a child to an adult. Ice was kind, polite and always talked with you if he saw you out. A great and respected ref, a Marshall County icon. I remember Judy and Ice from living on Alta Vista, a wonderful couple. RIP Mr Manning. Judy I’m so sorry for your loss of your husband.

MY DEEPEST SYMPATHY AND PRAYERS TO THE FAMILY OF GEORGE. GEORGE WAS ONE OF THE NICEST , CARING , GIVING, CHRISTIAN MEN I HAVE EVER KNOWEN. HE WAS OUR BASEBALL COACH EVEN THOUGH HE WAS JUST A FEW YEARS OLDER THEN US. GEORGE DIDN’T DRIVE BUT HE HAD HUNDREDS OF FRIENDS WHO WOULD HAUL US AROUND. GEORGE MADE SURE THAT WE HAD SPONSORS AND UNIFORMS AND EVERY PLAYER WAS IMPORTANT TO GEORGE. I BECAME A BETTER MAN BECAUSE OF THE FRIENDSHIP HE GAVE US. HE DID NOT SEEK FAME OR NOTORIETY, HE MADE US THE CENTER OF ATTENTION AND WE WERE THE MAIN HAPPINESS IN HIS LIFE. THANK YOU GEORGE, AND MAY YOU REST IN PEACE MY FRIEND.
YOUR FRIEND, BIG LARRY FERRERA.

Ice, what a great public servant you were!
In my 15 years at Cameron High you were the school board member I would see the most! You always treated the students, teachers and all county personnel with respect! I always enjoyed your visits at Cameron H.S. Graduation nights. RIP my friend
