Marion S. Mann

After a short illness, Marion S. Mann of Gardnerville, Nev., passed away on August 14, 2008. Born in 1916 in Philomath, Ore., he was a man with a deep love for his family. A trucker by trade, his love of long rides and travel went well together. He leaves behind Ruth Spencer, his partner of 22 years in love and life's adventures; his children, Judith Grider (Buzz) and Donal Mann; grandchildren, Debbie Lee (Robert), Trisha Baker (David) and Joe Mann (A.J.); and great-grandchildren, Jake and Maggie Lee and Harley Baker. Growing up in Eugene, Ore., his love of sports carried him through to college. He raised his family in Ashland, Ore., while working for United Grocers. After retiring in Yuma, Ariz. and Gardnerville, his love of playing at the casinos and dancing with Ruth kept him busy. His warm smile, amazing sense of humor, silver dollar pancakes and words of wisdom will be greatly missed. We love you! Services were held privately.
