It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of "Manny" Emanuel John Drake Ratcliffe, on April 8th, 2023, in Coquitlam, B.C. Born on April 30th, 2003, Manny was just 19 years old when he died. Manny leaves behind his mother Brandi, his brother Danny, his sisters Deina, Tayler, and Laylah, his nephew Malakai, many cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents, and friends.
Manny was a favourite uncle to his nephew for his ability to be the funniest adult in the room. Manny had a great love for his family and friends, especially his sister Laylah who he always watched over. Manny had a passion for boxing and MMA and loved many types of music and movies.
We will remember Manny for his great sense of humour, his loyalty, and his kind generous heart. He will always live in our hearts and memories as a bright light. He will be forever missed.
A celebration of life will be held at the Gorge Pavilion at 6:30 p.m. on April 30, 2023.
