Alvin Delaney Mann "Poppy"


Alvin Delaney Mann “Poppy” was born March 17, 1948 in Tallassee, Alabama. He attended Tallassee High School where he graduated in 1966.  He made his way to Montgomery, Alabama where he worked as the Building Engineer for Robert E. Lee High School. He was loved by all and a stranger to none. After retirement, he moved to Marion, North Carolina to be with his grandchildren.  After a long fight with cancer and kidney disease he departed with his Heavenly Father on January 11, 2022.


He is survived by his wife Barbara; son John; daughter-in-law Jennifer; grandchildren Linen and Smith; brother Adrian; sister-in-law Charlotte; their children Kelly and Clint; nephew Travis; and niece Tondra.



His services have been postponed due to Covid, but a charity remembrance BBQ is planned for the spring. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the National Kidney Foundation.

Barbara, John and Jennifer, we are so sorry to hear of Alvin's passing. We have missed all of you and speak of you often. Some of our fondest memories are that of our time in Sturbridge as neighbors.
Alvin was a honorable, respected and valued friend and neighbor and loved by all who knew him.
You are in our thoughts and prayers.
Your friends,
Jim, Shannon and Stewart
