Reginald Manning

Obituary of Reginald Manning

Reginald Ladon (Donnie Baby) Manning was born in Memphis, Tennessee on Sept. 22, 1956. From birth Reggie was an exceptional being. As a baby, he was smart, loving and well behaved. As a little boy, he was well mannered, helpful and very respectful. Reggie maintained the same character and mannerism throughout his life. He even instilled those traits into his younger siblings. Any neighbor, acquaintance, or friend was always met with that same smile, the same love that will forever be.

Reggie's kind demeanor and sweet disposition were instilled within him from several sources; his great grandmother, Connie Manning and his grandmother Carnomas Manning played intricate roles in his upbringing along with his step father, Willie Coburn.

Reggie leaves behind his loving mother, Bettye Coburn of Avoca, NY; one sister, Marilyn Coburn also of Avoca, NY; six brothers Ivan, Andrew, and Paul Coburn all of Rochester, NY; Robert (Janie)Coburn of Tulsa, OK; Allen (Tamara) Coburn of Meadville, Pa and Christopher Coburn of Memphis TN along with his aunt Robia Busby of Mareno Valley, CA and two uncles Freddie (Freda) Manning of Marion, AR and James Manning of Hartsford, Ct. Reggie has so many relatives, friends, neighbors and acquaintances who will miss him dearly
