Chief Petty Officer David A. Mann, 59, died May 14, 2016, in Port Orange, Fla. after fighting courageously for two years with lung cancer before succumbing to the side effects of the disease. His devoted daughter was with him everyday at their home and during his treatment. Burial was held at the VA cemetery in Florida. He was a very active member of the Harley Davidson motorcycle groups. He was escorted by a group of Harleys to his final resting place where a military ceremony was at grave site.

Per David’s wishes, he has been cremated and there will be no memorial service. He will always be in our hearts and on our minds. Soar with the eagles Dave, we love you! We will meet you on the other side.
