Robert J. "Bob" Mannon

November 25, 1941 — June 20, 2022


Robert (Bob) James Mannon of Manchester, New Hampshire passed away of natural causes at the age of 80.

Born in Roanoke, Virginia on November 25, 1941, he was the son of Louise Reed.

Bob is survived by his ex-partner, Donna and his ex-wife Katie, and their children Kevin, and his wife Melissa of Bedford, NH, and Kerry, and her husband Adam of Houston, TX, and his two granddaughters Lorelei and Julia.

Bob served as a Medical Service Specialist in the United States Airforce from 1959-1962 at MacDill Air Force Base, Florida. Afterwards, Bob had a long career as an insurance executive specializing in reinsurance.

Before relocating to New Hampshire in 2005 to be closer to family, Bob made his home in the greater New York City area. Despite leaving New York, Bob never ceased to be a New Yorker.

Nothing we can say could better sum up his humor and outlook on life than what he wrote in his “40’s Lament”

40’s Lament

I’m told with age comes maturing, peace of mind, content enduring. But I think it’s all a lie, while sitting here and pondering why. Reality shows it’s all downhill, teeth with nothing left to fill. Wrinkles flowing, my nose is growing, stature’s getting smaller still. Belly’s inching to my knees, and in addition to all of these… Where’s libido, eyesight and coordination when nature calls at each gas station? Did you say stop your fearing…can’t since someone’s tinkered with my hearing. I’m mulling now it’s all a jest while sitting here in needed rest... Oh my God I’ve Grown Some Breast! But really do I care cause I’ve retained this savoir-faire… And did I mention I’ve lost my hair? Now I think it's time to go but where I just don’t seem to know. And even if my chores are pressing I’ve forgotten, OH WHAT A BLESSING!
