A beloved and very special man went home to the Lord on 12 February 2017 at the age 87. Manuel "Manny" Marin, Sergeant First Class U.S. Army, (retired). A member of "The Greatest Generation". Born in Weslaco, Texas.

Manny chose the military life as his career - U.S. Marine Corp and the U.S. Army.

He dedicated his time to serve the Catholic Church, The Knights of Columbus 3rd & 4th degree. He assisted Pilgrim Center of Hope in starting the Catholic Information Booth in terminal #2 at the San Antonio, TX International Airport where he served weekly for 17 years.

He was a very active member of the Serra Club of San Antonio, a Catholic organization that fosters to the priesthood and religious life; he served in various posts and became club president in 1998-1999. He was always helping his family, the sick, the homeless in Travis Park and especially the elderly. Manny and his wife traveled on five pilgrimages with the Pilgrim Center of Hope. He led the Rosary before Mass and served as an Usher in his parish, St. Mark the Evangelist Church.

The goals he set as a young man were fulfilled in his relationship with God and his family. He is highly respected and honored by his family as a wonderful father, a teacher, role model and gentleman. His strong faith in God inspired his family and others. Manny leaves a void in this world, but he fills a space in heaven. He will truly be missed.
