H. Manley Case, 90, of Romansville, passed away on Friday, August 12, 2022, at the Chester County Hospital.  Manley married the love of his life, Kathryn M. (Griffith) Case, with whom he shared 70 years of marriage.

He retired as an Administrative Judge for the Federal Government.

Manley and Kathryn traveled the world together.  He enjoyed collecting coins, golfing, and eating breakfast at the Coffee Cup nearly every Saturday for the past 50 years. 

Manley will be remembered for his good sense of humor and being a man of his word, always leading by example.  He loved his family and was a good grandfather and great grandfather.

He is survived, in addition to his wife, by three children: Richard Case, husband of Roxann, of Denver, Pa., David Case of Coatesville, and Debra Bixler, wife of Miles, of Columbia, Pa., nine grandchildren, and nine great-grandchildren; and sister Laura Deckman.
