RARITAN- On Tuesday, October 5, 2021, Imanuel “Manny” A. Andino, 16, received his angel wings. He was born on April 12, 2005 in Camden, NJ. Manny is survived by his beloved parents Alejandro Andino and Nicole Patente Andino, adored siblings Megenzi Reyes, Alexia and Enzo Andino, loving grandparents Dilette and Michael Patente and grandmother Ana Aguilar, cherished nephew Leiam Lee Antonio Carpenter and lots of uncles, aunts and cousins.
Manny attended Lakeview School, NJ Institute for Disabilities where he loved to listen to music, spend time in a bean bag chair, and play with all his friends.
Over the years he was blessed to have many loving and amazing nurses, doctors and caretakers.
Manny’s smile and loveable giggles always made him stand out in the crowd!
He loved listening to Disney music and watching his sisters sing and dance which always made Manny so happy. Even when Manny wasn’t feeling his best, a quick word from his sisters would bring that smile right back to his face. Although short, Manny’s time on earth touched everyone who had the honor of meeting him. Manny was a kind pure soul.
Manny’s last few years were spent with Dr Vassallo and the AMAZING team at Children’s Specialized Hospital in Mountainside. These angels along with Dr. Carlos Lastra cared for Manny when we couldn’t. Manny’s family is forever grateful for them.
