Donald V. Manning passed away on September 20th after a long illness. He was born in Jersey City, but spent most of his life in between Sea Bright and Rumson. Donald joined the Navy at an early age. After he completed his tour, he went to work for the Dock Builders and Carpenters Union Local 1456 out of NY. During that time he joined the Eatontown Police Department, where he spent five good years, leaving there to go on to the Monmouth County Prosecutor's Office, Freehold, NJ. Donald retired as a Lt. after 26 years. Donald loved his job and won many awards and accommodations as well as the respect of his Brother in Blue. He would stand by anyone who wore the badge. Two very proud moments in his life were to see his son Thomas and his daughter Teresa also wear the Sea Bright Police uniform side by side. He would come home beaming with pride. He was an avid ?tness buff into his 80's. He will be missed by his faithful companion "Jensen" his Jack Russell. A special appreciation to the hospice nurses
