Dr. Raymond Edward Mann LUBBOCK- Dr. Raymond Edward Mann, who brought a number of Lubbock's population into this world through his 38 years in medical practice and who has been a major figure in arts and sports contributions, passed away on Thursday, Oct. 24, 2013. Funeral services for Dr. Mann will be at 2 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 29, 2013 at First United Methodist Church with burial following at Resthaven Memorial Park. His family will receive friends on Monday, Oct. 28, 2013 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Resthaven. Dr. Mann was the son of Dr. Earle H. and Harriette Mann of Amarillo in 1927. He was happy to ride a bike and play outside in the 1930s and survived the discomforts and illnesses of the Great Depression. He attended Lee Biven Elementary School, then went on to Elizabeth Nixon Jr. High, and then to Amarillo High School, all in Amarillo, Texas, where he learned to played clarinet and tenor saxophone and played in and managed a band named Music Makers. Raymond tells us he was bitten by the Golf bug at age 14 and was interested in that, the military, and music at the same time. He joined the Army as a paratrooper along with his friends, R. Beck, R. Young, D. Wlliams, J. Seale, M.R. Watson, C. Thornton, and others to go as occupation troops in Japan during 1946 to 1948. From 1948 through 1950, Raymond attended Southern Methodist University during the regular semesters and also attended Amarillo Jr. College and West Texas State during the summers to gain enough Pre-Med hours to enter Kansas City College of Osteopathic Medicine in 1950. During his time at SMU, Ray met Joanne E. Coate. After a whirlwind romance, Ray And Jo were married in December of 1949. Following graduation in 1954, Raymond, Joanne, and their two young sons moved to Amarillo for his internship during 1954 and 1955, followed by another 3 years to earn his General Surgery Fellowship. In 1958 Ray and family moved to Lubbock, where he became an important influence in and contributor to the medical community beginning with his joining the Lubbock Osteopathic Hospital. Dr. Mann's medical expertise was not limited to Lubbock, as he provided surgical procedure services for surrounding rural communities such as Olton, Stanton, and occasionally other small communities. During his career in Lubbock, Ray was a member of District 10 of the Texas Osteopathic Association, the American Osteopathic Association, and a Fellow of the American College of Osteopathic Surgery. He served at Lubbock Osteopathic Hospital, Community Hospital, and was President of the Board of Governors at South Park Hospital, as well as a consultant at the Amarillo Osteopathic - Martin County Hospital. He was preceded in death by his parents; his sweet wife, Joann Mann; brother, Dr. Maurice Mann; and wife, Betty Myatt-Mann. His memory will be cherished by Robert and his wife Diana of Richmond, Texas; Steven of Bremerton, Wash.; Dr. Christopher Mann of Dallas, Texas; Marlaine and her husband Mike McCreight of Lubbock, Texas; nine grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren. The ripple effect of his philanthropy, his generosity, and the handiwork of his stellar career will continue to flow out through time and he will be missed and forever remembered by his patients, his colleagues, and all those who held him dear.
