Thomas “Tom” Dean Manard, 51, of Barry, IL died February 14, 2018 at Barnes Jewish Hospital in St. Louis.  He was born in Pittsfield, IL on May 30, 1966 to Ronald D. Manard and Minnie K. Walker.

Tom attended Barry High School.  After graduating in 1985, he went on to attend a tech school in Quincy where he studied small engine repair. Tom really enjoyed working on small engines and worked at Rennecker’s Equipment in Barry for several years, before being forced to quit due to health issues. In his spare time, Tom liked fishing and playing his guitar, and loved being around his nieces and nephews.  Tom overcame many obstacles in his life but he never complained, and he will be sadly missed by his close family and friends.

He is survived by his sister, Sandy (Jay) Carlton of Barry, IL; a niece, Lakin Carlton of St. Louis, MO; two nephews, Nate Carlton and Jayson Carlton, both of Barry, IL; stepfather, Jack Hively of Stearns, KY; two step brothers and a step sister; and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.

He was preceded in death by his parents.

There will be a visitation from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM on Thursday, February 22, 2018 at Niebur Funeral Chapel in Barry.  Interment will be at Park Lawn cemetery at a later date.  Memorials are suggested to the family or to the Barry Food Pantry.  Niebur Funeral Chapel is handling the arrangements.

My family and I would like to express our deepest sympathy over the loss of Thomas.
May you find comfort in your loving memories and the warmth of family and friends. A scripture that has uplifted many who have experienced such a loss, is found at Revelation 21:4. There it describes a time when death and pain will be gone forever. We will even see our loved ones again who we have lost in death (John 5:28 & 29). It is our hope that these words bring you a measure of comfort during this difficult time as well. Once again, please accept our condolences as you deal with your loss.

I would like to express my condolences to the family and friends of Tom Manard. While words fail to capture the pain of losing a loved one, we look forward to the time when words will fail to capture the joy of having our heavenly Father, Jehovah, return your dear one to you. May the Lord, Jesus Christ himself and God our Father who loved us and gave everlasting comfort and good hope through undeserved kindness, comfort your hearts and make you firm. (2Thessalonians 2:16,17)
