Manuel Muñiz González was born April 2, 1955 in La Regina Julimes, Mexico to the home of Luz (Muñiz Hernández) and Casimiro González Hernández and died at his home in Portales, NM on the afternoon of Feb. 2, 2019. Manuel came to Clovis in 1970. For several years he worked as a farm and ranch hand. Later he went to work at Worley Mills in Clovis. In 1979, Manuel took a job at Excel Meat Packing Plant in Friona, TX. In 1992, he began working at Roosevelt General Hospital as a custodian, and then in 1999, he became the school custodian at L. L.

Manuel enjoyed traveling with his family, as well as gardening and planting trees. Family camping and fishing trips in the mountains were special for him, and in later years, he loved spending time with his grandchildren. He always enjoyed star gazing and bird watching. He was a member of St. Helen Catholic Church.
