Sgt Beverly Jean Manlove
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Jul. 25, 1922
Missouri, USA
Death: Jun. 6, 1944
Basse-Normandie, France

Beverly was the youngest son of Charles Heroll Manlove and Verna Belle Putnam. The family moved from Missouri to Pawnee County, Kansas about 1925, where Beverly grew up on a farm near Garfield.

After graduating from high school in 1940, Beverly worked in Larned as a filling station attendant until he enlisted in the Army at Fort Riley, Kansas on August 31, 1942. When he enlisted, he was 5 ft. 8 in. tall and weighed 136 lbs.

He was assigned to Company I, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment and was promoted to Sergeant in 1944. He was reported missing in action on June 6th after parachuting into Normandy in the first wave of the invasion. He was posthumously awarded the Purple Heart and the Bronze Star.

21 Years, 10 Months, 13 Days.

Sgt. Manlove's body was not recovered, and a memorial stone in his honor was placed in the cemetery at Garfield, Kansas, near his home. The date of death given on that stone is incorrect. Since it is 1 year and 1 day after he was reported missing, it appears that it is the date the Army officially declared him dead. --See Find A Grave Memorial# 95077046
