Since 1993, Mann and JoAnn traveled the continental United States, visiting all of the states except for five, and lower Canada. He would travel for miles to listen to Southern Gospel Music.
He was so dearly loved by his family and everyone who knew him. He was a wonderful Christian man whose life on earth was a testimony of God's gifts and of His mercy, love and grace.
