David S. Manuel, formerly of Flourtown and Lower Gwynedd, died peacefully on March 30, 2021 at Fort Washington Estates in Fort Washington, PA. He was 91 years old.

Born in Drexel Hill, PA, he was the son of the late Evan Knowlton and Kathleen (nee Smythe) Manuel.

David was a proud veteran of the USMC, serving during the Korean War, and retiring as a Lieutenant Colonel after 40 years in the Marine Corps Reserve. He was a 1951 graduate of West Chester University and received his Master's Degree in Educational Administration from the University of Pennsylvania. Mr. Manuel had a long and successful career as a well-respected math teacher and coach. He taught at Plymouth Whitemarsh High School and Welsh Valley Junior High before spending 40 years as a teacher and football coach at Lower Merion High School. After retirement, he joined the faculty of Montgomery County Community College and continued teaching for another 10 years.

David was a lifelong Eagles fan and was in attendance at the 1960 championship game. In addition to coaching high school football, he was a coach in the Flourtown/Erdenheim Little League. Dave was also an active member of the MOAA, Military Officers Association of America. He and his wife Betty loved to travel.

David is survived by his beloved wife of 63 years, Betty (nee King). He is the loving father of Cynthia Daley and her husband Steve of Maple Glen, Ellen Barlow and her husband Chris of Mount Laurel, NJ and David Andrew (Andy) Manuel and his wife Cheryl of Cape Coral, FL. He is the dear Pop Pop of Sean (Colleen), Sarah and Ryan Daley, Shannon, Jack and Caroline Barlow, and Uncle Dave to many nieces and nephews.
