ROBERT FROST MANN of Lauderdale by the Sea, FL died peacefully in the care of Hospice on the first of April 2020. He was 75 years of age.
Born in Boston, Massachusetts, to William Frost and Dora Foss Mann, he was raised in nearby Dedham. He was later a boarding student at the Governor Dummer Academy in Newbury, Massachusetts, and graduated from Syracuse University in 1968, where he was a member of Phi Delta Theta Fraternity.
As a young man, Bob traveled the world with a strong sense of adventure, accumulating life-long friendships and returned their loyalty with equal measure. He always made friends laugh and enjoy life even more, while sporting a brilliant politically incorrect sense of humor, which was strong until his final days. Bob could always be found early morning at Pomperdale's Deli, debating politics and swapping tall tales with Rick, Bree, and the gang.
He worked as a registered agent in the insurance, investments, and real estate industries, retiring in 2019. He was a member of the Broward 100 Club for over 40 years and had served as elected treasurer. Bob loved his collection of rescue cats and dogs and his favorite causes were animal welfare organizations, such as The Humane Society and Big Cat Rescue.
Robert leaves behind his beloved wife of 30 years, Mary Christine, daughter Skylar Ariel, and brother Ted. His brother & sister-in-law, John and Lucy Kaltenbach, and their twins Wallis and Jace also lament his passing. He cherished his life-long friends of over 72 years, Spider and Rip, along with cousins, Lyman, Paul and George Foss. We know he would regret not having the chance to bid farewell to all of his friends mentioned and
not mentioned here.
Bob expressed the wish to rest among his ancestors at the family plot in Brookline, Massachusetts. The family will consider a gathering of remembrance in Fort Lauderdale at a later date.
