Text Size controlsNormal font sizeMedium font sizeLarge font size

Marty Manning (pictured at right) got involved with the Chapter in the 1990s when his first wife, Lynn, was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. Marty retired as a lieutenant colonel in U.S. Marine Corps and taught at Christian Brothers Academy, before retiring to care for his wife. He was one of the Chapter's most vocal and passionate advocates and served on numerous committees before his appointment to the board. He was the longtime facilitator of a bi-weekly support group in the Syracuse area, affectionately know as "The Gang."

Marty remarried in 2008 and lived in the Bayberry neighborhood of Liverpool. He served four terms on the Chapter's Board of Directors, before retiring in October 2010. The Manning children made a donation in honor of their father, wanting to continue his fight against the disease and assist other caregivers in their journeys with the disease.

Marty died on August 10, 2013 at Crouse Hospital in Syracuse. He was 84.
