Ronnie Mann


     Ronald “Ronnie” Dean Mann, the seventh of eight children, was born to Dean and Anna (Perrin) Mann at home outside of Pisgah, Iowa on May 20, 1942. He attended school in Pisgah until he was a senior, when the family moved to Woodbine, Iowa where he graduated in 1961. Ronnie started carpentering with his dad and continued this his whole life, working with his best friend, Frank Plain, and for a period of time with Dave and Duane Burmeister. He was married to Maureen Miller in the RLDS church in Woodbine on November 2, 1963, and to this union were born two children, Lisa and Kevin. The couple divorced in 1981. Ronnie, Kevin and Lisa increased their family when Ronnie married Dianne (Perkins-Smith) and son Doug on July 16, 1983.
