Eileen, Michael, Peter, and Eric;
I am so sorry for your loss of our beloved Manfred. What a special, dedicated, loving man his entire life. He led a simple and humble life. From my memories, He loved his wife, his sons, their significant partners and kids; his lifelong friends; his masons; his church members; his neighbors and more.
Manfred was our uncle.
He was always there for us.
In fun times. And difficult times.
He always was a stoic man.
I am so sorry I could not be there tonight because of covid.
God bless you all always.
Peter, special blessings for you for taking daily care of your parents for so many years.
Lots of love and prayers.
We are very sorry for your loss and love you all.
Cindy, Mike and Nick Miller

Mr. Wuttke was a true gentleman and friend especially to his fellow veterans and Masonic brothers. He was a blessing to our family during my father's illness, but it is their friendship throughout the years which we will remember most. Our condolences to the entire family, his kindness will be missed.

Manfred was an amazing person with a kind spirit, always looking to help those in need. As a member of United Lutheran Church at Wartburg since 2012, he served on the church council providing his knowledge and support for many years. Fred assisted on Sundays to bring the Wartburg wheelchair residents to and from church services. He was also an extremely talented photographer as he captured beautiful photos of people and nature. Manfred was loved by many at United, we will miss him. He will be remembered as a special and kind man with a strong faith and a loving spirit. May he rest peacefully with his Lord. Our hearts go out to Eileen and his family for their loss. With Our Deepest Sympathy, Carol and Barbara Dingler (United Lutheran Church)

Manfred was a man of great faith and courage. He was good to everyone and often expressed his love by taking pictures and making copies for people. In spite of illness and infirmity, Manfred was always in good spirits and he was able to lift the spirits of others through his many kindnesses. He rests now in the loving hands of his Lord, whom he served faithfully for many years. I look forward to seeing him again in God's Kingdom.
