Manuel R. Tarango age 59, was welcomed into heaven on Feb. 15, 2013 by his parents Helen and Gilbert Tarango, sister Gloria Tarango, and niece Antionette Tarango with open arms.
He left behind his brother Gilbert P. Tarango, Jr.; sisters, Julia Tarango and Linda ‘Tarango‘ Kriley; nephews, Gilbert and Eric Tarango; nieces, Meadow and Brandi Kriley, and Anjelica ‘BooBoo’ Tarango; great nieces and nephews, Michael Echevarria, Helena, Andrew and Gabriel Gonzales; and Adriana, Marcus, Eric, and Gloria Tarango.
Manuel was a carefree, fun-loving, devoted, family man who loved his family more than anything in the world. He was the absolute best son, brother, uncle and friend anyone could ever ask for, and he was always excited to see you. He had the biggest heart; if you needed help he was there for you.
He loved being outside riding his bike around town, visiting friends and collecting cans. He knew everyone and everyone knew him; he would always have a smile for you, wave as you would pass by and ask how you were doing.
Manuel’s favorite thing was going to Noftsger Field to watch baseball games in the summer. He loved his pets — chickens, rabbits, and dogs — like they were his children. He would walk to La Luz Del Dia to have his coffee and breakfast daily.
Manuel was one of a kind, and there will never be anyone else like him. He will be greatly missed not just by his family but by the community that he loved. He may not be with us but he will NEVER be forgotten. We love you Manuel, always and forever!
