Shuttling tourists in his pedicab along San Francisco’s famous waterfront for the past six years made Kevin Manning a fixture in the city. The lifelong cyclist, mechanic and inventor loved his job and was described by friends as “salty and surly” with a heart of gold.
But on Tuesday, those close to the 66-year-old were overcome by grief and seeking answers from the city after Manning died at a hospital Monday night — two weeks after being struck by a hit-and-run driver on his pedicab along the Embarcadero.
“He was just a really solid dude, and he’s going to be well remembered by all of us,” said Colin Sanders, who worked with Manning as the fleet and facilities manager at Cabrio Taxi.
