Reflections for Officer David Wayne Manning

Rest in Peace Motorman. You are not forgotten.

Motor Officer Danny Johnson

David was a wonderful person. He loved his job as he only wanted to make this place just a little better. As you see the smile on his face that was his trade mark. At Christmas time he gave out Candy Canes to all the children he came into contact with and when they found him his candy canes were laying all around him. He is deeply missed. Love you David, your mom.

I worked with David in Bakersfield. He always had a cheery disposition and very clear thinking. He was as pleasant as his picture portrays. I remember visting with his family who was holding vigil as he lay in a coma. They had great hopes because he was beloved by them. I am better for having known him.
