It was with sadness that I learned of the passing of Dick Mann on May 7th of this year at the age of 81.
You may not have known Dick personally but chances are you’ve seen some of his work. Dick was one of two long time operators that have lit up Niagara Falls for the past decades. Dick performed this duty for the past 33 years.
I worked with Dick Mann for many years when I served in the 1990’s as the Secretary of the Niagara Illumination Board.
Dick was always co operative, punctual, and friendly. He was a great ambassador for Niagara Falls.
He will be missed.
Thanks to Rick Berketa for providing this photograph of Mr. Mann.
