Manuel Ibanez Cisneros, age 81, went home to be with the Lord, January 4, 2021. He was born August 14th, 1939 in Fort Worth, TX. He was the youngest child of Henry Cisneros and Guadalupe Cisneros Camargo. A very lowkey man, Manuel lived his live with great humility, humbleness and simplicity. When Manuel was eleven months old, his father perished in a gun fight while defending his brother in the Stockyard area. After this tragic event, Manuel stayed in an orphanage with his two older siblings Lola and Raymond “Ray” Cisneros. From there he grew up in the historic Northside area where he discovered his spirituality and became involved in the Catholic religion. Manuel worked at a warehouse in Fort Worth and took pride in his work – knowing that a job well done gave him great purpose. In his later years, Manuel found comfort in his brother Ray’s family and moved in with niece Ramona and her husband Ernest Ramirez. Manuel always knew family drama was temporary, but his love for his family would last forever.

Love you." – Victoria Cisneros Ayala (niece) “After my grandfather, Raymond Cisneros passed, gran tío Manuel helped me discover the heritage and legacy of our family and I will forever be grateful to him.” - Carlos Eric Lopez (great nephew) We love you tío Manuel and send you all our love as you head off on your final ride and embark on new adventures with God.
