Manuel Reyes Jr. of Tolleson, born June 3, 1962, passed away peacefully on Sunday morning December 27, 2020, surrounded by his family. He was a beloved son, brother, uncle, godfather, and most of all a father and grandfather. Manuel survived by his daughter Stacy Reyes, grandchildren Javi, Joelle, and Julian. Parents Manuel Sr. and Rosemarie Reyes, sisters Eva Bartoli and Tanya Reyes, and his nieces and nephews. Nothing was more important to him than family and he showed that in everything he did. Manuel's biggest accomplishments were being a father and grandfather. He always wanted his daughter and grandchildren to consider him fortunate enough to be there for them. His grandchildren would call him Tata poon as it was a name given to him by his older grandson Javi. He was always there for them no matter what and hoped that he had taught them to enjoy every moment of their lives. Manuel was passionate about life, he was taught some hard lessons when it came to his health which made him appreciate second chances. He was an avid music lover and a collector of watches and jackets. He was known for his quick wit and his infectious smile and laugh but most of all his kind and compassionate spirit which will live in our hearts forever.
A funeral service will be held on Friday, January 15, 2021 at the Best Funeral Services at 9 a.m. Flowers may be sent to 501 E. Dunlap Ave, Phoenix, AZ 85020. A celebration of life for Manuel will be held at a later date. Thank you
