Ronald Francis Mann
1931 - 2022
The family is sad to announce the sudden passing of Ronald Francis MANN, in his 91st year on February 21, 2022. Ron, a longtime resident of Kingston, Ontario, was born on August 18, 1931 in Winnipeg and raised in northwestern Ontario (Red Lake, Central Patricia, Fort William).
Loving husband, father and grandfather.

Predeceased by parents R. Walter Mann and Dora M. Boles, Vancouver, and only brother E. Gerald Mann, Calgary.
His was a life well lived. Soldier, chemical engineer, teacher, faculty member of Royal Military College, active church member and avid genealogist – his life was a broad tapestry - he touched so many lives.
Upon graduation from RMC, he served in Korea and then continued his military service until 1958. His career was dedicated to chemical engineering at RMC – both teaching and research.
