                Daniel was born on August 13, 1940, in Chicago, IL, the son of Delbert and Rosella (Little) Manning.  He married Carolyn "Terry" Lahue on November 20, 1965 in Walker, IA.  Daniel was a proud veteran and served our country in the United States Navy.   He got his bachelor's degree from Coe College in Cedar Rapids, IA, and pursued his MA and Ed.S. degrees at the University of Northern Iowa, Cedar Falls, IA.  Daniel worked as teacher at Urbana Consolidated, Urbana, IA from 1966-69, Linn-Mar, Marion, IA from 1970-71, and Bettendorf Middle School from 1972-2000.  While teaching in Bettendorf he coached boys tennis at Pleasant Valley High School and later coached girls tennis at Bettendorf High School. 

                Daniel greatly enjoyed spending time with his children and grandchildren; and loved teaching and coaching.  He volunteered activities for many years at Genesis Hospital and as a volunteer driver for the American Cancer Society.  Daniel liked being active outdoors: hiking, biking, and playing tennis.  He was a faithful man and was an active member of St. Patrick's Catholic Church, Andalusia.

There's still time to send flowers to the Recitation of the Rosary at the Wheelan-Pressly Funeral Home & Crematory at 3:30 PM on March 28, 2017.

I remember Daniel as a perfectionist. He was practicing his tennis serving during hours alone and I played with him socially. He was very good but joins the league lately, in the last past 5 years. (Henri) Terry Manning,
