An honest and trustworthy man

One who did acts of kindness and who loved people

Reb Menachem Manli/Menli son of Reb Aharon David the Cohen

Saldinger, may they rest in peace

He passed away in Los Angeles in the 59th year of his life

on the 3rd day of Kislev 5718

and he was brought to burial in Israel on the 4th day of Nisan 5720

His wife and his family will never forget him

For the man was precious to us

May his soul be bound up in the bond of life.
===================================================
'Reb' is an honorific; it does not mean rabbi.

The second part of his name, M-N-LI is not familiar to me. Without vowels, it is difficult to be sure of the pronunciation, which is why I gave two possibilities.

He and his father were Cohanim (plural of Cohen). A Cohen is a member of the priestly tribe. The first priest was Aaron, Moses' brother, and this designation is passed down from father to son. Cohanim had specific functions in the Temples, and still receive special recognition -- and have special obligations -- today. The symbol at the top of the stone shows the priestly hands in position to bless the congregation.

The date of death, 3rd of Kislev 5718, began at sunset on November 25th, 1957, and ended at sunset on the 26th.

The date of burial, 4th of Nisan, 5720, began at sunset on March 31st, 1960, and ended at sunset on April 1st.
