  1. Mr. Manninger was always such a kind man. He will be missed. Condolences to the family may God be with you in this trying time.
    He and Hope are together again.

  2. I’m a retired Major from the Texas Department of Public Safety. I first met Sgt Manninger in March 1982 when I began the DPS Academy. Sgt Manninger was one of counselors for Class B82. Sgt Manninger was very tough, fair, and respected by everyone in the class. My life is better because of the influence of Sgt Manninger. I will be praying for the family.

  3. Heaven gained one good man! Prayers for comfort to all of his family!

  4. So sorry for yall ‘s loss. Sgt. Manninger was a Super kind of person. Always enjoyed being around him. RIP Sir.
    My thoughts and Prayers are with you all.
