TRURO, MA. - Peter “Pete” Scott Manning, age 64, passed away peacefully at his home in Truro, MA. on February 25, 2022.
He was a graduate of Newtown High School where he excelled in football and track and field. He also played college football at American International College in Springfield, MA., his father’s alma mater. After leaving Newtown, Pete lived in California, Florida and ultimately ended up in Massachusetts where he lived in the town of Manomet for many years and then in Truro. Pete spent roughly 20 years working in the automobile business and spent the last 15 years of his career as an exterminator covering Cape Cod. Pete loved the ocean and was happiest when he was fishing in Cape Cod Bay or just sitting on the bluff at the family home in Manomet. He was an avid Atlanta sports fan from his early childhood living in Georgia and was in his glory watching his Braves win the World Series last year. While he had a passion for sports, Pete always had an amazing love for animals. Whether it was the family dog or the squirrels that would find their way onto his porch to eat the peanuts that he would place by his chair, he had an undeniable connection with them.
Pete is survived by his loving daughter Stephanie Manning of Queens, NY who was the pride of his life. He is also survived by his brother Brad Manning and his wife, Kim, his nephews, James, Kyle and Andrew Manning and his niece Kate Manning and her son Jayce. He was predeceased by his father James Manning, his mother Patricia Manning and his brother Michael Manning. He also leaves his former spouse, Diane Manning.
