Emmanuel "Manny" Pantalleresco of St. Clair Shores passed away on May 4, 2021. He was 81.
Manuel was born in Valletta, Malta and came to United States around the age of 10. He grew up in
Corktown and was a graduate of St. Vincent High School. He joined the army and then was employed in
the automotive industry until retirement. Manny enjoyed bowling and played on multiple leagues
during the season and you would think he was the Mayor, because everyone knew him. He loved
fishing, watching football and baseball, football squares, and going to Vegas. He was the family
comedian and if you heard his laughter, you knew it was him. Manuel was always there if you needed
him and he had a heart that cared.
A very special Thank-You to all the staff at Church of Christ Assisted Living who became his family these
past few years.
Emmanuel is preceded in death by his parents Antonio and Antonia Pantalleresco, siblings Carmela (George) Ferrugia, Mario, Slavino (Mary), Agatha (Joseph) Cardona, Joseph, Alfred and Dolores (John) Sant. He is survived by his sister-in-law Jean (beloved wife of the late Alfred), many nieces and nephews, great nieces and nephews and a few great-great nieces and nephews, cousins, friends and his adored dog Bear. He was a loving uncle, cherished member of the family and will be truly missed.
