Roger Wayne Mann
Sunrise 01/10/1949 to Sunset 07/30/2022.
Roger Wayne Mann, 73, left this earthly world on July 30, 2022, in Ocala, FL. Roger was born in Frederick, MD (City, State) on January 10, 1949. He was the loving son of the late Garland and Ada Mann.
Roger’s memory will be cherished by his wife, Cathy; children Bridget Carpenter (Tom), Patty Martinez (Herb), Kim Hawkins (Pavan) and Steven Mann (Danielle); sisters Josie McAdams (Jack) and Margaret Hodges (John). Roger also had 12 grandchildren, 7 great children and many friends all over the country.
Roger loved our country and the great outdoors. He was an avid collector of arrowheads and spent countless time hunting for them all over Marion County and the Ocala National Forest. He was also a kayaking fanatic and loved kayaking the springs, especially Juniper and Silver Springs. As much as he loved his hobbies, he loved his family even more. His most cherished moments were spent telling stories and sharing laughter with his friends and family.
We will miss him dearly but we know he’s off to greener pastures.
We will celebrate his life and memories with family at Steven and Danielle’s home on Sunday, August 21 at 12pm. We will also gather for a kayak run at Silver Springs (date TBD).
