He was born on July 15, 1925, to Cecilia Ogan Mann and James Cooper Mann, Sr., in Wheeler, Texas. Dr. Mann was working very hard during this time to establish his rapidly growing medical practice.

He is survived by his wife, Phyllis Louise Cole Mann; his daughters and sons-in-law, Teresa Jeanne McDonald in Vancouver, Washington; Michelle Maureen Shelor and David in Cedar Park, Texas; Katherine Leslie Powell and Jeff in LaGrange, Texas; Tracy Elizabeth Erickson and Mark in Austin, Texas; and James Cooper Mann III in Cedar Park, Texas; his grandchildren and spouses, Stephanie McDonald Lappano and Michael; William Louis McDonald and Heather; Michael Wayne McDonald and Lindon; Phoebe Shelor and Griffin Shelor; Colton Powell; and Trevor Pyle; his great-grandchildren, Dylan and Mataya McDonald and Viva and Marcello Lappano.
