It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our brother, uncle, and friend to all that knew him. He left us on April 28, 2020 . He fought a good fight battling cancer. He was a veteran of the United States Army, and he was a big fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers. He also resided in Pittsburgh, PA for several years. He was the son of the late Noah Carlton and Gladys Mann. He was preceded in death by his sister, Bonita V. Mann and brother, Daniel Saunders.

He leaves to cherish his memories: a daughter;dTwylanda M. Smith of Pittsburgh, PA., three grand children of  Pittsburgh, PA.; a very special and devoted lady in his life; Lucinda A. Marcell of Pittsburgh, PA., three brothers; Noah Mann, Jr. (Tanya) of Portsmouth, VA; Benjamin Mann (Syrinithnia) of Lancaster TX and Roger Mann (Doreen) of Portsmouth, VA.; three sisters; Rosalind Stevens of Portsmouth, VA, Amy Mann of Portsmouth, VA, and Valorie Mann of Chesapeake, VA. The one and only special uncle William Harvey (Rosetta) of Chesapeake, VA., eighteen nieces and

A special thanks to his sister Amy Mann and brother Roger Mann for all the hard work that they did for their brother, taking him back and forward to the VA hospital, to doctor’s visits. Amy thank you for being a good caregiver for him.
We would like to give a special thanks to all the chemo staff at the VA hospital for all the hard work and care they gave our brother God bless you ALL.
