I am so sorry to hear of Manny’s passing. I knew Manny as a member of the Construction Institute and served on many committees with him including the Facilities Management Council. He was a true professional in every sense of the word. His contributions to construction in Connecticut will be felt for years to come. My sincere condolences to his family.
