Manuel Davila

December 17, 1931 — October 8, 2022

Manuel Davila, 90, went to be with the Lord on October 8, 2022 in Seguin, TX. Manuel was born on December 17, 1931 to the late Jose Davila and Ynacia Montanez Davila in Seguin, TX.

Manuel was well known in the Seguin Community and loved by many. He will be greatly missed by all. Manuel worked for Tyson, formally known as Holly farms, where he retired after 34 years. Manuel enjoyed fishing, working outdoors in his yard, repairing lawn equipment, and working on engines for his family and friends. One of Manuel’s greatest accomplishments and many hobbies was playing 8 Ball. He was a member of the 8 Ball Association League and was honored as the Most Valuable Player (MVP) and Hall of Fame in 2017.

Manuel enjoyed visiting his daughter Nancy. They would conversate and watch football together. He would occasionally bartend at his daughter’s bar, formally named Nancy’s Hang Out. Manuel was also owner of Margarita’s Bar in the early 90s, where he enjoyed visiting with family and friends.

Manuel is preceded in death by his parents, Jose and Ynacia Davila; brothers, Eusebio Davila, Jose Davila, and Jesus Davila.

He is survived by his loving daughter, Nancy Davila; granddaughters, Esperanza “Lexi” Villareal (Josh), Kathrine Garza (Rosemary); close family friend, Stephanie Perez (Dillon); brother, Thomas Davila (Consuelo); sister, Librada ”LaLa” Davila Ramirez, and numerous nieces, nephews, and extended family and friends.
