Bob had a very special place in his heart for all his family. He enjoyed and loved his grandchildren, having bonfires with them, including finding that special “Magical” starting sticks. He always found time to enjoy the precious time with his grandchildren (Elizabeth, Griffin, Mason, Seth, Payten and Deaclan). He was very proud watching his son retire from the US Navy in California. Yvonne, his wife of 19 years, was a very special love in his life whom he married January 16, 1998. They enjoyed going to St. Pete Beach, Florida and spending time on the beach. He also enjoyed spending time in the garage relaxing as he watched NASCAR races and Colts games, which he had a passion for. He also had a unique way of collecting items; tools and various other odd items. Bob worked for Herff Jones for 18 years.
Bob is survived by his parents, James R. and Joan (Thurston) Mann, his wife Yvonne C. (Alfred) Mann, his 2 sons William (wife Karen) Stromberg, and James (wife Jennifer) Stromberg, daughter Stephanie O’Dell, brother Randy Mann, sister Cinda Burton (husband Ronnie), and his 6 grandchildren, Elizabeth, Griffin, Mason, Seth, Payten and Deaclan, and many nieces and nephews.
