MANN, Leslie Philip Feb 12, 1959 - Sept 28, 2013 It is with the greatest sorrow that we announce the sudden passing of our loving husband, and father, Les Mann. Les recently celebrated his 25th wedding anniversary with his wife, Lana, and leaves behind two wonderful children, Miranda and Colton. Les was born in Duncan, BC the youngest of six, Chris (Wendy); Brian (Vicki); Bill (Bonnie); Judy (Terry Bayes); and Richard (Nancy). He is survived by his father, Quinby, and predeceased by his mother, Ruth, and has many, many nieces, nephews and grand nieces & nephews. Les grew up in the valley heavily involved in sports both playing and coaching, and was a huge influence in the lives of many. He was very involved in the lives of his children and could be seen cheering them on the sidelines, or running a sound board for his sons' band. "We love you and miss you so much. You were the best father and husband anyone could ever ask for; you were our rock, and you will never be forgotten. Lana, Miranda & Colton" A Celebration of Life will be held at Mellor Hall, Cowichan Exhibition Grounds, 7380 TCH, Duncan BC Friday, Oct 11 at 2:00 pm. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the Les Mann Memorial Fund at the CIBC Duncan for the benefit of Cowichan Junior Field Hockey.
