Manny Cruz Memorial Fund

Your gracious gift will assist Manny Cruz' Family for costs incurred due to the recent passing of their devoted and caring father, Manny.  A stellar member of the SPAWAR Reserve Team, the SPAWAR Military Management Office, and The Marlin Alliance, Inc. for several years, Manny was the backbone of the Reserve Fleet support program as he ensured all logistics and equipment support for Reservists were meticulously completed for hundreds of detachments within the US and overseas.

Often working long hours and during his personal time, Manny's work ethic, thoughtfulness, and keen sense of humor always shined bright for his shipmates- especially during the heaviest workloads.

The funds raised will be used to cover mortuary expenditures, and the daily financial needs of his 3 wonderful young children Claire, Kris, & John Cruz (such as food, rent, transportation and other necessities).

Thank you all so much for your thoughts, prayers, well wishes & tremendous support.
