Paul E. Manges Jr. October 8, 1946 – October 28, 2013 Paul E. Manges, Jr., 67, passed away peacefully at Baylor All Saints Medical Center in Ft. Worth, Texas, on Monday, October 28, 2013. A graveside service will be 1:00 p.m., Tuesday, November 5, at Waco Memorial Park. Visitation will be 5:00 – 7:00 p.m., Friday, November 1, at Wilkirson Hatch Bailey Funeral Home. Paul was born October 8, 1946, in Waco, Texas. Paul attended Bosqueville and China Spring schools. In 1965, Paul enlisted in the United States Army and served in the Intelligence Division while stationed in Tokyo, Japan. After returning home, he attended McLennan Community College and then on to the University of Houston, where he studied computer programming. This became his passion in life and took him many places throughout the United States. Paul eventually decided to come back home to Texas and settled in Galveston, where he finished his career working for the County of Galveston as an information technology programmer. If Paul was not on his computer, he was playing chess or watching his beloved science fiction movies. He had the Rubik's Cube solved, and could give you his knowledgeable opinion on any subject you wanted to discuss. He enjoyed listening to his music whether it be classical or jazz. Paul is preceded in death by our father, Paul Manges, Sr.; and sister, Susie Norris. Survivors include our mother, Marguerite Manges of Waco; one brother, Gary Manges of Axtell; one sister, Rhetta Pickens and husband, Charlie, of Bosqueville; nieces, Suzanne Norris of Georgia and Bobbi Jo London and husband, Chris, of Robinson; two nephews, Adam Gunn of China Spring and Charlie Pickens III of Bosqueville; great nieces, Haven and Addison; and a great nephew, Carson.
