Obituary of Arthur Paul Manoni
Arthur Paul Manoni, 90, of Clifton Park passed away peacefully on September 25, 2022 at his home after a brief illness. Born September 21, 1932, in Cohoes, he was the son of the late Louis and Lena Castracane Manoni. He was predeceased by his sister, Mary Manoni, and brothers Harry Manoni and Tito Manoni.
Art was an engineer and problem solver all his life. He graduated from Cohoes High School in 1950 and went on to complete the GE Apprentice Drafting Program and graduate from the University of Cincinnati with a degree in Electrical Engineering. He worked for many years for General Electric in Steam Turbine Generator Engineering.
Art lived a full and vibrant life devoted to his family. He began each day with a To Do list written in Italian and had many passions, including painting, music, gardening, woodworking, and learning the Italian language. He filled the family home with beautiful paintings and hand-crafted furniture, and his son and daughter have fond memories of building bookcases, tables, and other pieces with him as children. An avid gardener, Art planted dozens of tomatoes, zucchini, and leeks every year, patiently nurturing each plant from seed. He was especially proud of his tomatoes, which he enjoyed sharing with family and friends.
He is survived by his loving wife of 52 years, Carolyn Sue Manoni, son Gregory, daughter Trisha (Zachary) Ball of Houston, Tx., and granddaughter Emilia, whom he adored. He is also survived by his brothers Albert (Virginia) Manoni of Salem, Va., Louis (Joan) Manoni of Spotsylvania, Va., David Manoni of Spotsylvania, Va., and his sister-in-law Barbara Manoni of Troy.
