Manford Otto “Manny” Oyen, 86, of Mesa, AZ passed away January 25, 2017 in Mesa.

A Memorial Service will be held at the Fountain of the Sun in Mesa, AZ on February 20, 2017 at 1 p.m. and in Minnesota at 1st Lutheran Church of Crystal this summer.

Manford Otto Oyen (Manny) was born  June 2, 1930 in Benson, Minnesota and died  January 25, 2017 in Mesa, AZ.

Manny worked for Barton Sand & Gravel  for 42 years out of Osseo, Minnesota and was very proud to have helped build the road infrastructure around the State of Minnesota (and to drive his children around on the roads that weren’t even opened yet).  He was an active member of 1st Lutheran Church of Crystal and Our Saviors Lutheran Church of Mesa.  He was a member of Sons of Norway, the Fairhaven Lions Club, and the Norske Torske Klubben.  He was a volunteer at the Banner Baywood Hospital for many years.

Manny lived in Crystal for 35 years, moved to their lake home in Fairhaven, then to Clear Lake.  A few of these locations also included time at their place in Mesa, AZ.  He was in wonderful home hospice care for three months prior to his passing.  

He is survived by his wife Mary Lou, children: David (Chris), Sandra Danks (Garry), Douglas (Jane), Jonathan (Young Jin) and Kimberly, nine grandchildren, one great-granddaughter and his brother Donald.   

He was welcomed into heaven by his parents, Emma & Otto, his sister Evelyn and many friends and relatives.  Knowing Manny, he is enjoying seeing many of his old friends and family.

Manny always had a smile on his face and was a friend to all!

The family requests that memorial gifts be given to Valley Hospice of AZ, 1350 E. McKellips Road, Suite 5, Mesa, AZ  85203 or to a church or service organization of your choosing.
