    Mark Manley was a man we all would have been honored to have on our team. Loyal to a fault, unreal work ethic, family man to the core, talent beyond measure. Was an inspiration to us all.
    We all should strive to make the lives of the people we serve, better people for knowing us, as he did.

    Mark Manley was a good man and someone to be admired. He was an amazing Husband, Father and Co-worker. He was a Godly man and loved his wife as God intended marriage to be from the beginning. If she asked He would always go the extra mile for her because of his unwavering love. His children and grandchildren were his joy created from the love he and Beverly shared. As a friend and Co-worker you could always depend on his honesty and fairness. As he stands with our Lord and Savior I’m sure he was told “Well done good and faithful servant”. God bless his family. Jesus will walk with you always.

    Amanda and I were to elementary/middle school together and were close friends. Mr mark was always so very kind to me. I lost my mother at a young age and Amanda and her dad were there for me! You could always count on him to have the best jokes and turn every day into a fun one! He was a gem and will be truly missed!

    God speed Mark Manley! You took an old Yankee from Illinois under your wing and helped me any way you could. You truly were a Southern gentleman! Rest easy my friend your work here on Earth is done.

  11. Joshua Lindsey

    Mark Manley was one of the kindest men I’ve ever met. He was always smiling, always had a story or a joke to tell ya. Whenever I’d get to work, he’d tell me to come to his desk he wanted to show me something. Most of the time it was a car or something cool he found online. We spent a lot of time talking, looking at old cars and laughing.

    He took me under his wing from the moment we met and was a great mentor to me. I always knew I could go to him for anything. He’d either have the answer or he’d help me figure it out. I can’t remember a time he didn’t have a smile on his face. He was my friend, my mentor and a truly great man. I will miss him greatly.

  15. John & Dottie Chaplin

    We moved to Foley, Alabama in 2019. A year before, we met Mark at Southern Chevrolet and bought a 2018 car from him. His actions, personally, and honestly helped us to decide on settling in Foley, Alabama.
    Mark was a super person. When we went to service the car, always hollered at him if he wasn’t busy. Mark always had some car business going on. Always had time to speak or visit a bit. Always a joke to tell.
    I went to get the car serviced April and found out the news of his passing. I went out and set under the blue umbrella and chairs to reflect on what I heard. Called my wife (Dottie). She couldn’t believe it. We and all lost a good friend and person in January.
    To Beverly and the kids. He loved you all to the MAX. He brought you all up in every conversation we had.
    Heaven is a better place with Mark in it. Won’t ever be the same with out seeing him at the dealership or around town.
