Died: Thursday, February 01, 2018
After battling cancer for the past year and a half, Preston H. Mann, of Novi, Michigan (formerly of Brown City and Lapeer, Michigan) passed away peacefully on February 1, 2018.

Preston spent his childhood with his brother Jay in the woods and fields near his family home in Metamora, Michigan. He attended Kingsbury Country Day School in Oxford, Michigan; The Hotchkiss School in Salisbury, Connecticut; and went on to study at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.

Following his father’s lead, Preston made a name for himself training bird dogs and appearing on public television’s “Michigan Outdoors” at his hunting preserve Farmland Pheasant Hunters in Brown City, Michigan.

In his later years, Preston enjoyed travelling to Alaska with his wife Sarah “Terry” Mann, captaining several sailing trips on his boat “Meloura” to the Georgian Bay, sharing pointers with his three grandchildren on many exciting fishing trips, and improving his golf game as a member of the City of Novi’s 55+ Golf League. Recently Preston enjoyed many leisurely visits with family and friends.

Preston was preceded in death by his father, Preston Mann and his mother, Lucinda “Mickey” Caples.

He leaves behind his wife, Sarah “Terry” Mann; daughter, Sarah Mann and her husband, Matthew Weeber; grandchildren Kieran, Wyatt, and Maple; son, Preston E. Mann and his wife Urpi Adela Carlos Rios Mann; stepmother, Mary Ann Mann; siblings, Jay Mann, Charles (Claudia) Mann, and Maureen Mann.
