Daniel “Danny” Earl Mann, 86, of Rushford, Minn. died on Friday, November 7, 2014, at the Good Shepherd Lutheran Home in Rushford surrounded by his loved-ones.

Danny was born on May 21, 1928, in Money Creek, Minn. to Vernon and Alta May (Gross) Mann. He was raised in Money Creek and attended Money Creek School.

Danny taught agriculture classes to the WWII veterans at the Rushford High School. He served in the U.S. National Guard and the U.S. Army during the Korean Conflict. Danny worked for American Breeder Service for over 42 years. His Motto was, “Dial Dan, the man for the job.” Danny was a very active member of Rushford Lutheran Church. He enjoyed music, reading, dancing, visiting friends and traveling. Danny and Geneva visited 42 foreign countries over the years. After visiting Ireland, he composed poems and limericks, which he published. He also published a book of his father’s poems. Danny had a great passion for Volvo automobiles. In his lifetime he owned twenty of them.

Danny is survived by his best friend and caregiver, Irene Overland of Rushford; a brother-in-law, Allen (Ramona) Peterson of La Porte City, Iowa; and by many nieces and nephews and their families.

He was preceded in death by his parents; wife, Geneva; and two sisters: Anna May and Margie.
