Heart Of America Motorcycle Enthusiasts William George Manning passes

William George Manning passes

Fellow HoAME Club Members:

Sadly, We have lost one of our own.

Last Thursday afternoon Bill Manning was on his way to a Moto Guzzi rally in West Virginia when he was hit by a tanker truck and killed, about 300 miles from the rally site.

The obitituary was published today in the Kansas City Star.

Bill was a rider and as Sandi Whitney, a long time friend said, “He went out on a bike, doing what he loved to do”. Sandi suggested that club members might enjoy the Thursday eve “visitation” as it will be a memorial time to celebrate Bill’s life.

William “Bill” George Manning, 71, of Raytown, MO, passed away June 28, 2012, in Princeton, WV, while traveling on vacation, doing what he loved to do, riding his motorcycle. Visitation will be held at Langsford Funeral Home in Lee’s Summit, MO, July 5 from 6-8 p.m. Burial service will be held July 6, 10 a.m., MO Veterans Cemetery, Higginsville. Mr. Manning was born Nov. 1, 1940, in Clifton Hill, MO. He was a retired Air Force veteran, decorated with a career of achievements and a retired Teamster. He loved his family and friends deeply. He had compassion for all God’s creatures, conducted himself with integrity, was a forgiving man and took great joy in helping people. This life he lived, in all its pursuits, was carried out with what some know as the Manning work ethic. Donations on his behalf can be made to Little Sisters of the Poor at https://secure.pledgeconnect.com/donation.aspx?littlesistersofthepoor-kansascity or by calling (816) 761-4744. He is survived by his two sons: Jason and Brian, siblings: Ivan, Joan, Frank and Clara, and grandchildren Ben and Grace.
