McMANES: John was born in Brandon, MB on May 11, 1951 and passed away peacefully surrounded by family on May 16, 2022 in Calgary, AB at the age of 71. After graduating from Neelin High School in Brandon, John helped run the family farm before going on to work in Real Estate, Manitoba Hydro, the automotive industry and his own business, McKnives, in Calgary. John loved golf, curling, and hunting with his brothers-in-law, son, and grandson. He also cherished his times with friends vacationing in Clear Lake, MB. John was the ultimate host and loved spending time with his family, particularly his grandkids. He will be remembered for his hugs, generosity, and open-door policy, making everyone feel welcome. His daily mission was to make a stranger laugh at his jokes! John is survived by his loving wife Valorie McManes, sons Christopher (Lisa) and Kirk (Janna); four grandchildren, Caiden, Ella, Kellan and Deegan; three brothers, Jim, Jeff (Val), Jaye (Bonnie); two sisters, Janice and Joanne (Rod) Dunham; Aunt Pat McManes and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. A private family service will be held on Tuesday, August 2nd. Please join the family afterward to celebrate John's life at the Eagles Nest Bar & Grill, 3500 McDonald Ave, Brandon, MB from 1pm to 3pm. For those who wish to express their sympathy, please consider making a donation to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada in John's name.
