William "Bill" R. Manus IV

March 14, 2023


William Manus, a true native of Charlotte, N.C., went home to be with his Heavenly Father on March 14, 2023. He was born August 2, 1948 to the late William “Robert” Manus III and Keith T. Manus. He was a proud graduate of Harding High School, Class of 1967, where he lettered in track and football. William attended Appalachian State University. He later retired from Reynolds Aluminum where he was an aluminum fabricator. William doted on all his nephews and nieces who affectionately called him “Uncle Nester”. In addition to his parents, William was preceded in death by a sister, Bonnie “Karen” Harmon. Surviving are his sisters, Barbara M. Carmack of Davidson, and Sarah M. Haston (Johnny) of Charlotte, and many loving nephews and nieces.

A Celebration of Life Service will be held at 2:00 PM on Monday, March 20, 2023, with visitation at 1:00 PM prior to his service at Woodlawn Baptist Church, 4622 Nations Crossing Road, Charlotte, NC 28217. Interment will be at Carolina Memorial Park on University City Blvd. at Harrisburg.

William will be remembered for his humble and kind heart and his love for children. He loved history and playing Chess and was willing to teach anyone wanting to learn. His precious smile was contagious and his love for the Lord was evident. He will be missed by all that knew and loved him.

Memorials can be made to Woodlawn Baptist Church where William was a member, or The Alzheimer's Association of Charlotte.
