Danny Neil Manthei
Danny Neil Manthei, 41, of Hearne, TX passed away on August 10, 2014 after a long, hard-fought battle with cancer. He was born on July 8, 1973 in McAllen, TX to Teddy and Donna Manthei. He is survived by his wife of seven years, Sonia Manthei, and their four children - Teddy, 6, Mary Kathryn, 4, Mary Anne, 2, and John Marie, 9 months, along with his parents, his brothers and their wives – Darren and Melinda Manthei of Bremond, TX, David and Briana Manthei of Liberty, TX, and Dustin and Robin Manthei of Hearne, TX; his mother in-law and father in-law, Ma. Esther and Gilberto Jaramillo of Bryan, his brothers in-law and their wives, Junior and Maria Colegio of Bryan, and Juan and Gina Colegio of Bryan, as well as 14 nieces and nephews and many uncles, aunts, and cousins.
Danny was a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Hearne. He loved his faith, God, and his family, and was a devoted husband and father. He had a great love of, and reverence for, Christ and His Church, and his favorite topic to learn about was history, especially Church history. He also enjoyed guitars and old muscle cars, especially Trans-Ams.
Danny never gave up hope. Throughout his battle he offered up his pain and suffering so that others might come to know and love Jesus Christ. He yearned for his friends and family, especially his fellow Catholics, to study and learn their faith so they could more fully participate in the life of the Church.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Hospice Brazos Valley. Arrangements are entrusted to Heartfield-Ritter Funeral Home in Hearne.
