Dakota Colton "Kota" Manor, age 24, of Martinsville, passed away unexpectedly on Friday, January 26, 2024. He was born May 4, 1999 at Clinton Memorial Hospital in Wilmington, Ohio. Dakota was a young man from Clinton County. He had an infectious smile and goofy personality that made everyone laugh. He was our "Woo Girl". As a kid, he enjoyed raising hell with his siblings on the family farm, while being watched by his beloved Aunt Nennie (Sennie). He had attended East Clinton Schools until the middle of his 8th grade year when he transferred to the Blanchester School Distrct, and attended Laurel Oaks, taking Auto Body, where he graduated in the class of 2018. He was a true RED BLOODED AMERICAN. He enjoyed being in the garage, making crafty things with Hannah out of wood, and tinkering (turning wrenches) with almost anything that required gasoline or diesel fuel...4 wheelers, cars, trucks and mud (tearing up the yard) to name a few. He also loved animals and any & all babies. He had loved a good cookout and cornhole with his family and friends. Most of all, he loved his babies, that were the light and joy of his life. Dakota is survived by his fiancé Hannah Mann, and children, Haven Mae Manor and Beau Warren Manor of Martinsville; parents, Craig and Ruby Manor of Blanchester and Brandy Radabaugh of Wilmington; brothers, Calob and Sydney Manor, Jayden Shinkle, and Jesse Hurt; sisters, Alexandria Miller and Jazzalynn Miller; Paternal Grandparents, Bob Manor of New Vienna, and Roy and Pam Hansford of Hillsboro; Maternal Grandparents, Ricky Shinkle of Hillsboro and Chrystal Spurlock of Sabina, and Kevin Roberts of Lebanon and Caroline Keyser of Geismar, Louisiana; Great-Grandparents, Uncles and Aunts, nephews and niece, cousins, among many other family members and tons of friends.
