Richard Manuli III Thursday, May 13, 1993 - Monday, June 12, 2017
Richard George Manuli III passed away on Monday after a motorcycle accident. Rich’s positive glow and passion for life’s adventures made his influence on others widespread and inspiring. Rich was born in Las Vegas, NV, then moved with his family to Pleasant Hill, California in 2001. By Junior High, Rich and his family had settled down in Martinez where he graduated from Alhambra (Mr. Alhambra!) High School in the class of 2011. While attending high school, Rich was a three-sport athlete, Vice President of his graduating class, and even went on to found his very own Fancy Cheese Club! His next adventure took him to Oregon State University, where he found a new home with the Phi Psi fraternity. He attained his bachelor’s degree in Environmental Economics and Policies in the graduating class of 2015. He spent the following year exploring the American countryside, soaking in stories and culture faster than it could be dished out! Over the past year he has been working for Tanko Lighting in San Francisco. In April of this year, Rich was accepted to law school at Golden Gate University in San Francisco, closing in on yet another one of his ambitious goals. Rich is survived by his mother Kimberlie Ann Fisher, his sisters Alexandria Anna Manuli and Chelcie Ann Wimmer, nephew Jaxon Wayne Wimmer, and two amazing fathers Chris Fisher and Richard Manuli Jr. A candle lighting ceremony will be held in Rich’s honor at the Martinez Marina on Friday at 8p.m. Friends and family are invited to gather in a celebration of life on Saturday, June 17, 2017 at 10a.m. at the Alhambra High School Gymnasium. The reception will follow from 12-3p.m. at the Lafayette Orinda Presbyterian Church.
