Louis A. Manoliades, 88, who retired in 1988 as a civilian maritime manager with the Department of Transportation/U.S. Coast Guard, passed away April 15, 2018, at his daughter’s home in Jeffersonton.

He was born May 21, 1929, in New York City.

Mr. Manoliades received a bachelor’s degree and Merchant Mariners Officer’s License upon graduation in 1951 from the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point, Long Island, New York. He sailed worldwide for nine years in the Merchant Marine service. He was Assistant Manager for Delta Steamship Line in the Washington, D.C., before beginning federal service as the U.S. Coast Guard’s first Chief, Bridge Permit Branch, receiving both congressional and commandant commendations.

He received the Secretary of Transportation’s Silver Medal from Elizabeth Dole for improving the safe passage of cargo, people and vessels on our nation’s waterways.

For the past six years, Mr. Manoliades resided at the Villas of Suffield Meadows near Warrenton to be closer to his family.  

Survivors are two daughters, Donna Martin, husband David and family of Mooresville, N.C., and Laura Casey, husband John and their family of Jeffersonton.
