MANNING -- Richard C. "Dick" Manning passed away Thursday, January 15th in Iraan, Texas after a long and valiant battle with cancer. Dick was born to William R. Manning and Mary Katherine Dunn Manning (Rix) on December 15, 1936 in McAllen, Texas. He was a resident of Deming, and his ranch in Puerto de Luna, New Mexico. Dick came to New Mexico in 1955 after his military service in the U.S. Navy (1952 1955) during the Korean conflict. He worked on the McCauley ranches in Grant county where he met his soon to be wife, Edwina McCauley. They married in 1956. Dick was well known in the mining and ranching industries. He was instrumental in the developing metallurgical procedures that revolutionized the recovery process of gold and silver. He successfully re-opened and mined the Wilcox/Mogollon mining districts during the 1970's and 1980's where he ran one of the few successful independent mining, milling, and smelting operations in the United States. He also devised and ran environmental clean up operations for a number of major copper companies wherein he both recovered the lost copper as well as cleaning up the environmental hazards they presented. Dick is probably best remembered however, for his participation in the ranching industry. Dick loved the ranching industry and the way of life that it presented above all else. He believed that the small rancher was the backbone of this country and he was a great defender of the independent rancher. As a well known historian and researcher, Dick was a respected and much sought after authority on the U.S. Constitution and the West. As one of his peers so aptly stated, "His (Dick's) belief in right and wrong and our great nation's Constitution have taken him from the Roundhouse in Santa Fe to the halls of Congress and from state and federal district court to the court of appeals. His knowledge of the Treaty of Guadalupe-Hidalgo rivals that of any historian or lawyer." He was a member and/or director of the following associations: New Mexico Cattle Growers Association Coalition of Arizona- New Mexico Counties American Institute of Mining Engineers (AIME) National Federal Lands Conference Catron County Cattle Growers Association Federal Lands Conference R-Calf USA Dick was honoured with the prestigious "2003 Cattleman of the Year Award" by the New Mexico Cattle Growers Association.
