Michael Manrod

March 13, 1992 — June 5, 2020

Michael Harrison Manrod, age 28 of Knoxville passed into eternal life unexpectedly on June 5, 2020, due to complications from long term epilepsy. Our beloved "Uncle Mike" was preceeded in death by his father, William Earnest Manrod III in 2008. He is survived by mother, Courtney Anne Manrod; brothers, William Ehren Manrod and wife Colleen, Mathew Philip Manrod and wife Jennifer; sister, Amy Leigh Pennoyer and husband Chip; seven nieces and nephews; grandmother Marian J. McLeod, aunts, uncle and dear friends. Michael was a lifelong parishioner of St. Stephen's Episcopal Church in Oak Ridge, TN. He attended St. Mary's Catholic School and graduated from Knoxville Catholic High School in 2010, lettering in ice hockey. He attended New York University and the University of Tennessee where his studies focused on psychology and social work, with the goal of applying his education to help others. Michael later discovered his true calling, cooking, and was excited to be accepted into the Culinary Institute of America for Fall Semester 2020. Michael heroically battled a lifetime of health challenges. His wit and sense of humor revealed a genuine concern for others that complimented his passion for history. Michael was deeply loved by his family and friends. A memorial service and celebration of Michael's life will be scheduled at a future date. In lieu of flowers donations may be sent to the Ronald McDonald House Charities or the Epilepsy Foundation of East Tennessee. His family gives sincere thanks for the outpouring of love during this difficult time and finds great comfort knowing Michael is at peace. This end is a new beginning.
