Timothy L. Manchester

Fallen Hero’s Hometown and State: Buellton, CA

Branch of Service: Marines

Rank: Staff SGT

Staff Sergeant Timothy Manchester served for nearly a decade in the Marines as a Cryptologic Linguist, then went on to serve for three years in the Army National Guard. He received dozens of medals and service awards, was known for his work ethic, became fluent in Arabic, and even completed two degrees while serving. He deployed three times to Iraq and served in Egypt during the revolution of 2011.

Timothy loved reading, baseball, and running. He was known for his speed and when people asked him how he learned to run so fast, his reply was always a humble, “I don’t know, I just run.” His dream was to coach baseball and teach.

Timothy loved board games, books, and the holidays. He made sure his team in Kuwait gathered for a Christmas celebration while they were deployed.
