'Jack Philip Manning (17 years old)

Beloved son of Sarah and Tom, brother to Tilly and Sam.

He was a keen Army Cadet serving with the Princess of Wales Royal Regiment, achieving the rank of Sergeant and was going to train as an Army Cadet instructor.

Jack was hoping to join the parachute regiment in 2011.

Jack loved life and lived it to the full and wanted to be the first to try everything!

Coming from a large extended family Jack always loved being part of all the get- togethers and was really close to all his cousins.

Our lives will never be complete without him and Jack will be sadly missed by all his family and friends.
