Jude Allen Manuella
September 25, 1968 ‒ April 08, 2016
MANSFIELD: People just loved Jude Manuella! He was kind, and witty, and fun-loving. Dedicated to his family, Jude was an amazing hard worker who was characterized by compassion. Through the good times and bad, the Lord was faithful, and Jude refused to allow an illness to defeat him.
The Lord has been faithful again, calling Jude to himself Friday evening April 8, 2016. Jude was 47.
Born September 25, 1968 in Sandusky, Jude was graduated from Sandusky St. Mary’s High School in 1987 and attended carpenter’s school. For the past two years he worked as a supervisor at Cardington Yutaka.
Though he enjoyed playing basketball and golf, Jude spent much time coaching – 13 years coaching junior high and high school basketball in local schools – a gig he loved almost as much as coaching his children’s soccer, baseball, basketball and football teams.
Jude was a member of CitiChurch.
He is survived by his wife Stephanie (Campbell) Manuella, whom he married July 1, 1995; their children Olivia, Derek and Trevor; his father Johnny Manuella of Sandusky; brother Thom (Stacey) Manuella of Marblehead; sister Cindy (Angelo) Urso of Sandusky; father-in-law and mother-in-law Rick & Kathy Campbell of Mansfield; brother-in-law Toby (Melanie) Campbell of Mt. Pleasant, NC; nephews and niece Jonathan, Scott, Brandon, Cory, Vincent, Dominic, Luco, Christian, Keagan and Madalyn; and extended family members.
He was preceded in death by his mother Betty Manuella and brother and sister-in-law Jeff & Debbie Manuella.
A worship service, giving glory to God for the life of Jude Manuella will be held Monday, April 11, 2016 at 1 p.m. in CitiChurch, 541 State Route 97 W, Bellville, with Pastor Micah Pelkey officiating. Burial will be in Lexington Cemetery. The Lexington Avenue Snyder Funeral Home is handling funeral arrangements.
