Manny leaves behind his 4 children Jacqueline Vega-Munoz, Christopher J. Vega, Victoria Vega and Michael Vega, his grandchildren Isabell, Aaliyah, Demetri, Riley, Harleen, Christopher II, Charlie and Henry III whom he loved very much.
He was born in Brooklyn, NY the son of Margarita Vega and his late father Ruben Vega, also leaving behind his sisters Carmen Santiago and Elizabeth Vega-Hernandez.
Manny served in the Marine Corps and was a very proud Veteran. He began his career path in the Marines at age 17 where it took him to California where he continued his career as an Aviation Jet Mechanic/Manager for over 35 years working for McDonald Douglas, Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Northrup Grumman, Jon Winthrop and most recently American Airlines. Manny was a dreamer who aspired to open up his own business and after his stint in the Aviation field Manny opened up his own company, MV Private Holdings, LLC, providing Global Business Finance and SEO Digital Marketing to the industries. Under that umbrella he was also building other companies under the real estate and health and wellness arena.
Despite all his accomplishments, anyone who knew Manny knew he missed his calling…he was passionate about what he believed in and argued with you until YOU gave up. He should have been a “Lawyer.” Manny was generous, was the loudest at a party as he was the life of the party and played his music so loud that you could feel the vibration in your chest. Salsa and freestyle were his favorite. Always representing his Puerto Rican culture and his childhood dance team the Just Begun Crew (JBC).
Manny grew up a Catholic but having had challenges in his life he turned to Irving Bible Church (IBC) for renewed hope, faith and love that he needed to continue his mission in life. He was baptized on Easter Sunday 2019 and was a faithful follower. Having laid his father to rest just 3 months ago, Manny is now reunited with his father in eternal life.
