Michael A. Manni, age 58, of Wilmington, passed away on July 14, 2022, after a long battle with Lymphoma.  

Michael was born on May 28, 1964, in Malden, MA; he was the cherished only son to Ruth and Victor Manni.  Michael was raised and educated in Wilmington and a graduate of Wilmington High School with the Class of 1983.  In his younger years, Michael, had a passion for all kinds of music; he even belonged to a "Rock Band" back in the day with the neighborhood kids.  Michael went on to continue his education at the College of Fine Arts in Boston; earning his degree in Art History.

Throughout his life, Michael, had an incredible talent for painting and sculpting, he had a vast interest in History and Art and he enjoyed collecting historical artifacts and old coins.  Michael was "well read"; he enjoyed novels of all kinds and was fabulous at trivia.

Michael loved to travel, he enjoyed heading up and down the Seacoast areas and he lived in Chicago for many years before returning home to the Boston area.

Michael's pride and joy was his daughter Violet, who he adored.  Michael's family was the center of his world; he enjoyed family holidays, vacations, and spending as much time with them as he could.

Michael will be fondly remembered as a wonderful son, dad, brother, uncle and friend to many.  He showed so much courage and will power as he fought Lymphoma for so many years; never giving up.  Michael was so kind and thoughtful towards everyone he met and will forever live in their hearts.
