In Memory

F. Lawrence Keith Mann of Perkasie, Pa., formerly of “Tallyho,” Solebury, Pa., passed away peacefully on Oct. 23, 2022, after a courageous battle with cancer. 

Born in Philadelphia to F. Nelson Mann and Grace (Fontaine) Mann on Sept. 29, 1937, Larry is survived by his beloved wife, Judy (they celebrated their 61st wedding anniversary on June 3, 2022); his loving children Eric Mann (Amy), Laura Manchester (Robert), Scott Mann (Dianne); his grandchildren, Jiali and Minli Mann, Robert Jr., Grace and Emily Manchester, Dylan and Olivia Mann; his great-grandchildren, Samantha and twins Bobby and Maggie Manchester.

Larry graduated from Cheltenham High School in 1955 and Amherst in 1959 where he was a member of Chi Psi fraternity. He proudly served in the U.S. Army, receiving an honorable discharge in 1964.

He was the president of Jalkem Industries, Inc., a manufacturer’s representative to fiber and steel drum companies.

During his life, he coached community soccer and Little League baseball and owned Ormby’s restaurant in Easton, Pa., several racehorses and a chemical manufacturing business in Glenside, Pa.

Larry and Judy were founding members of Lookaway Golf Club in Buckingham, Pa., and one of his proudest moments was his hole-in-one on Hole 2 at Lookaway. He was a member of Doylestown Presbyterian Church for 56 years.

Not only was Larry a caring husband and father, but he was also a mentor to his children’s friends.

A man of great faith, he approached each day as an opportunity to love and laugh, to grow and serve.

His services were private.
