Obituary for Preston Hugh Mann

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.

As an avid sportsman, who enjoyed bird hunting, fishing and sailing, he had many friends and adventures. 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 husband Matthew Weeber, grandchildren Kieran, Wyatt, and Maple; his son Preston E. Mann and wife Urpi Adela Carlos Rios Mann, Stepmother Mary Ann Mann, siblings Jay Mann, Charles (Claudia) Mann, and Maureen Mann.
