Emmanuel Y. Encisco

January 30, 1938 — May 8, 2018

Emmanuel Y Encisco Jr, 80, of Cottonwood passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family on Tuesday, May 8, 2018. He was born in Flagstaff, Arizona on January 30, 1938 to the late Emmanuel and Carmen Encisco. He was raised in Flagstaff with his 3 brothers and 2 sisters and had a childhood that was filled with family and wonderful memories. While attending Flagstaff High School, he met the love of his life, Mary, who he later married, after proudly serving his country in the U.S. Navy. Over the course of their 57 years of marriage, they raised four children: JoAnn Encisco of Cottonwood, Manny Encisco of Paradise Valley, Josie Encisco Hammond (Dave) of Flagstaff and David Encisco of Paradise Valley. They moved from Flagstaff to Cottonwood, in 1972 where they were active members of Immaculate Conception Church and St. Cecelias Mission. He was a Eucharist Minister for many years, as well as a member of the Knights of Columbus. Emmanuel was a man of many talents, cook, baker, mechanic, handyman, electrician, plumber, welder, maintenance man, truck driver, the list can go on and on. After retiring as a mechanic for the City of Clarkdale, he stayed busy volunteering working with the elderly. Emmanuel was a friend to all, and never hesitated to help those in need, and always greeted you with his warm infectious smile. He led a rich, full life that was filled with family, love, hard work, and a dedication to God. Emmanuel will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him. He is preceded in death by his parents, and beloved wife. He is survived by his siblings Dolores Humlie of McMinnville, OR, Justino Tino Encisco (Sandy) of Cottonwood, Rebecca Ruiz of San Francisco, California, and Alfred Fred Encisco (Dolly) of Casa Grande, his four children, four grandsons, one granddaughter, and his many nieces and nephews. Services have been held.
