MANNY, Brad Thomas, MD 3/14/1954 - 11/06/2016

After a hard fought battle against a rare form of cancer over the last six months, Brad Thomas Manny "El Supremo", 62, passed away on Sunday, November 6, 2016. From his birth in Kankakee, Illinois, on March 14, 1954, he filled his life with a spirit of freedom and curiosity for the world around him. Many called him a "Mountain Man" as he spent a great deal of time exploring the wilderness; growing fond of the mountains of New Mexico, and climbing Wheeler Peak (Taos), the San Juan and Rocky Mountains of Colorado, Grand Teton, Mt. Rainer, Brooks Range in Alaska, Denali, Kilimanjaro...to name a few. The more remote and wild the location, the better.

Brad was a graduate of the University of New Mexico Medical School and completed his residency in Anesthesiology at the University of Arizona Health Science Center. He moved to Santa Fe, NM, and then to Reno, NV where he helped build an Anesthesiology group from 4 to 23 Doctors. He was a skilled physician and was known for his intelligence. He relished the adventures of traveling, had a fascination with Science Fiction, enjoyed listening to the Blues, embracing the calamity of fishing, the chaos of his grandchildren and left the world listening to the noises of a football game, which he loved.

He is survived by his wife (Rene'); his ex-wife, (Gina); his mother-in-law, (Carol); his two daughters, (Brittany and Alexis); his sons-in-law, (James and Wes); his stepson and daughter-in-law, (Jason and Amy); his stepdaughter and son-in-law (Melissa and Jeramie) his seven, soon to be eight grandchildren, (Kylie, MacKenzie, Ryan, Niko, Summer, Kenzie, Addison and Jace), and his two sisters, (Lori and Mari).

Family and friends whose lives Brad touched are invited to the EAST LAWN PALMS MORTUARY, 5801 E. Grant Road, at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, December 3, 2016, to reminisce and celebrate his life. Our hearts ache with your departure, but we all know you are now dancing on top of the highest mountain top imaginable!
