He filmed and edited local on-air reports as well as national and international segments, including coverage of the crash of Swissair Flight 111 off the eastern coast of Canada in 1998 and the Quecreek mine rescue in Pennsylvania in 2002.

Mr. McManus also worked as a camera operator and editor for Canada’s Global Television Network from 2009 to 2012.

Kevin Anthony McManus was born in Washington and grew up in Camp Springs, Md. He was a 1975 graduate of Crossland High School in Temple Hills, Md.

Early in his career, Mr. McManus worked in the Senate mailroom and taught himself videography on the side.

He lived in Arlington County before moving to Marco Island, Fla., in 2012.
