December 6, 1976 - March 18, 2022
Michael James Manley, age 45, of Columbus Ohio went home to be with the lord unexpectedly March 18,2022. Born December 6, 1976 to James and Della Manley-Metzger, Mike was loved and respected by everyone lucky enough to share time with him, his laugh inspired joy and his sense of humor would always put you in a happy mood. Mike admired custom Motorcycles Cars and Trucks and dreamed of being a collector one day. More than anything he loved to spend time with and provide support to his children and always tried to be available and supportive. His life changed with the birth of his only granddaughter Kyiah whom he loved with all of his heart; grandpa’s girl can never do anything wrong. With the loss of his brother Chris, Mike became the surrogate father figure to his nieces and nephews, he was always ready to provide meaningful words of encouragement and support whenever they were needed. His tough love coupled with the funny stories from his childhood would always provide comfort and soften the blow of the difficulties of life. He found true happiness in spending time with his family and was never afraid to share his opinions, his stories and more than anything, his unconditional love and support. His heart was bigger than his large frame, he was a big teddy bear hidden by a rough exterior. Michael is preceded in death by his father James Manley, brother Chris Manley, grandparents Henry and Mae Romine. He is survived by his partner Amber Justus, mother Della (Russ) Metzger, children Kira and Kane, stepson Anthony Justus, granddaughter Kyiah, brothers Robert (Colleen) McQuaid, James Jr (Carolyn) Manley, Scott Shawn Manley, sister Terry Clark, stepbrother Bryan(Teri) Metzger, lots of aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and many other family and friends. Visitation will be held Saturday March 26, 2022 at Or Woodyard Co. South High location from 12pm until service at 2pm.
