Patrick Joseph “P.J.” Manson, age 59, of McHenry, peacefully passed away Monday, November 11, 2019, at Crossroads Care Center of Woodstock. He was born to Gerald and Lucille (DeCicco) Manson on October 10, 1960, in Woodstock.

He was a great son, brother, uncle, and friend who will be missed by those that loved him.
P.J. is survived by his brothers, Steven Manson, Robert (Mary) Manson; his nephew and nieces, Jason, Jessica, Victoria, Elana, Tiffanie; and many great-nieces, nephews, and very cherished cousins.
