James 'Jim' Mcmanus Jr.

September 17, 1963 — August 28, 2014

James (Jim) McManus passed away on Aug. 28, 2014. Jim was born on Sept. 17, 1963 in Eau Claire, Wis. to James and Elaine McManus. He moved with his family to Bozeman in 1969 and subsequently graduated from Bozeman Senior High School in 1982. After high school, Jim joined the Coast Guard and served 4 1/2 years. During that time he was transferred to California and eventually settled in Santa Barbara where he had resided for the past 25 years. Jim was preceded in death by his father, James McManus. He is survived by his daughter, Stephanie Nielsen of Belgrade, Mont. and his grandson, Koyer. He is also survived by his mother, Elaine McManus, of Stanley, Wis.; his brothers, Pat McManus and Doug McManus of Bozeman; his sister, Diane (Ron) Manson of Stanley, Wis.; his sister, Sandy (Paul Shennum) McManus of Bozeman; his sister, Jackie McManus of White Salmon, Wash.; his sister, Cheri McManus of Wheaton, Ill. and his nephews, Peter McManus of Bend, Ore., Matthew McManus of Seattle, Wash., Tyler McManus and Kelly McManus of Bozeman, Riley McDermott of Wheaton, Ill., Tucker McManus and Oliver of White Salmon, Wash., and his nieces, Megan McDermott of Chicago, Ill., and Bailey McManus of White Salmon, Wash. Although a cliché, but to know Jim was to love him … a lot. His presence meant there would be lighthearted, big hearted fun delivered with a mischievous grin. He made sure everyone around him was comfortable and having a good time. Every spare minute Jim had he spent outdoors, biking, hiking, fly-fishing, dirt-biking and anything else that would take him into the mountains or out on the water. His first love was animals, especially dogs, and especially his dogs, Logan and Barney. He frequently shared pictures of his morning walks with his beloved dogs on the beaches around Santa Barbara to wish all friends and family a 'good morning”. A memorial service will be held at 9:30 am on Saturday, September 6, 2014 at Dahl Funeral Chapel. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Heart of the Valley or the animal shelter/animal rescue organization of your choice.
