Thomas S. McManus

Thomas S. McManus Thomas S. McManus, 75, passed away peacefully on Oct. 27, 2018 surrounded by his family in his home in Eastport.
Tom was known as a proclaimer of God's kingdom. He had the ability to talk to anyone, and was never afraid to strike up a conversation. No matter how the conversation began, he found a way for it to lead to an expression of his faith and an invitation to learn more about God's promises for the future (Psalms 37:10,11). He loved to give and wholeheartedly believed in and lived by the principle that there is more happiness in giving than there is in receiving (Acts 20:35). He simply loved life and would never tire of admiring creation and being in awe of the creator.
Tom wore many hats. You may remember him as "the hot dog guy" of Tom and Jerry's Doghouse in Traverse City or maybe he shined your shoes with VIP Shine. No matter how you may have known him, a conversation with Tom was usually unforgettable, leaving an impact on nearly everyone he met.
He is survived by his wife, Carol McManus; his two children, TJ (Lacy) McManus and Theresa (Juan) Martinez; children, of Joy Albright; and stepchildren, Jeremy (Cassie) Jones and Allison (James) Martin. He was also a grandfather and great-grandfather.
You are invited to join us for a memorial of his life at the Elk Rapids High School auditorium, 707 E. Third St., Elk Rapids, Nov. 10 at 3 p.m., with a reception to follow.
Arrangements are entrusted to the Covell Funeral Home of Elk Rapids.
