Nicholas "Nick" John Manning, age 25, of Mabel, MN died unexpectedly Sunday, March 13, 2016 at his home. Funeral Mass was held Saturday, March 19 at the Mabel-Canton High School in Mabel, MN, with Father Joe Hennen and Msgr. Donald P. Schmitz co-officiating.  Burial was in the Mabel Public Cemetery in Mabel, MN.
Nick was born February 11, 1991 in La Crosse, WI to Kevin and Joan (Sweeney) Manning. He was baptized at St. Olaf Catholic Church in Mabel, MN and confirmed at Assumption Catholic Church in Canton, MN. In 2009, he graduated from Mabel-Canton High School and in 2010 graduated from the Carpentry Program at Minnesota State College Southeast Technical. He worked with his parents at Village Farm and Home in Mabel, MN.
Nick was a member of St. Olaf Catholic Church, the Mabel Fire Department, the Mabel Ambulance, and the Lions Club. He grew up wearing a tool belt; he enjoyed being creative and fixing things. Nick had good business sense, great work ethic, and would do anything for others. He loved his family and friends, and he had an infectious smile and laugh. He played hard, but he worked twice as hard.
Nick is survived by his parents, Kevin and Joan, of Mabel, MN; his brothers, Nathan of Mabel, MN and Noah of Farmington, MN; a sister, Raechelle (Luke) Leidahl of Janesville and their son, Liam; a special friend, Amber Severson; his step-grandmother, Mary Manning; and many aunts, uncles and cousins. He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Ray and Monica Sweeney and Leo and Dorothy Manning; and his cousins, Jason Johanningmeier and Patrick Fisk.
Nick loved Mabel, MN and was committed to serving the community. Memorials will be directed to community needs to be determined.
