Obituary for Manuel Cudilla

Manuel F. Cudilla of Sterling Heights died April 15, 2021. He was 84 years old. Manuel was born January 31, 1937 in Balasan, Iloilo in the Philippines.

Manuel married Annabelle Martinez in 1975 and together they had three children. He owned and operated an electrical company in the Philippines and previously served as President and Lt. Governor for the Bacolod Businessmen Lions Club in the Philippines. As a way to give back to the community, Manuel would celebrate his birthday by feeding the families of their adopted village.

He loved sports, especially boxing, golf, and basketball and was an avid Detroit sports fan. Manuel enjoyed cooking for his family and friends. He also had a passion for war and history documentaries.

Manuel will be remembered most for his ability to make people laugh, his big heart and his deep love for others. He will be missed by many.

Manuel is survived by his children, Michael (the late Martine Verdier) Cudilla, Cristina (Corey) L’Heureux, and Manuel “Myton” (Toni Rose Yap) Cudilla. He is also survived by his grandchildren, Anaelle, Hugo, Leopold, Justin, Jordan, Jonathan, and Christian and his wife, Annabelle.
