Obituary For Emmanuel "Manny" Papanicholas
Methuen, formerly of North Reading - Emmanuel “Manny” Papanicholas passed away on July 5, 2021 at age 70 with his wife by his side. Son of the late Lycourgas and Joan Papanicholas, he was born and raised in Peabody and enjoyed a large circle of neighborhood friends whom he cherished throughout his life.
After graduating from Suffolk University, he developed a love of photography which became his vocation, doing wedding photography and portraiture. His love of music led him to apply his talent to photographing various rock and blues musicians, many of whom he met, including Carlos Santana, Buddy Guy, Eric Burdon, and BB King. When his sons were born, he became “Mr. Mom” in a time when that was rare and he treasured the time he got to spend with his boys. Manny was friendly and talkative by nature and often turned chance encounters into long-term friendships. Although he struggled with a rare muscle disorder in his later years, he remained an avid music fan and continued to enjoy his photography.
He is survived by his wife of 41 years Linda Lammi, his son Alex Papanicholas and wife Kerri of Raynham, his son Jason Papanicholas of Brighton, and his sister Serrina Papanicholas of Swampscott. He leaves behind his greatest joy, his grandson Jackson Papanicholas.
