Brian Manzanares' Family Support

On December 11, 2017, the world lost a great man in Brian Manzanares to a tragic accident in his home.  He is survived by his wife Lora, who he openly adored with all of his heart, and four kids who made him swell with pride- Briley, Braxton, Todd, and Levi.

In addition to providing a home full of love for family and friends, both Brian and Lora have dedicated their professional lives to helping people in bad situations turn their life around.  Brian worked in the Department of Youth Corrections prior to becoming a Probation Officer (where he met Lora), and most recently served in a leadership role as a Probation Supervisor.  Lora came to Probation from the Department of Human Services, and currently works in a part-time role as a Probation Officer, devoting as much time as she can to their two young boys, Todd and Levi.

As you can imagine, there are difficult times for Lora in the coming days as a newly widowed mom of 2 and 4 year old boys.  Brian, being a skilled handyman, had multiple projects going on as he worked to make improvements to their home.  In addition to memorial services and costs, there will be emergency medical bills and unfinished projects to complete, all while Lora works to navigate the future for her grieving family.

Knowing Brian would be among the first to step up and help any of us, we are asking you for any donation you can provide to help support Lora and the kids during this exceptionally difficult time.
