George Mann Obituary

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of George “Jeep” Mann, of Newburyport. He was surrounded by loved ones as he peacefully passed away in his wife’s arms. Jeep was born on November 29, 1944 in Greenwich Connecticut to the late Charles and Rosalie Mann. Jeep served his country as a proud member of the United States Coast Guard from 1963-1967.

Jeep loved cars, classic cars and race cars. It all started with his first car, a 1938 Ford Coupe. You could often find him at road shows or the Loudon Race Track. He zoomed around town in his red “hotrod” mustang and was delighted to give it to his son Josh to continue that legacy for him.

He enjoyed tinkering with his antique clocks and went to great lengths to keep them in pristine shape. He would spend hours searching for rare parts and meticulously repairing his clocks.

Jeep spent most of his time relaxing in his home by the water, with his wife, cooking, and watching classics like Bob Newhart, Sherlock Holmes and Agatha Christie’s Poirot. Through the years he enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren. He was thrilled watching his grandson Jack play hockey. He took great pride when he and his grandson Jacob made it to the finals in the Pinewood Derby (with just about the best looking race car around.) His granddaughter, Emma was the apple of his eye and his “bestie”. Jeep was cherished and adored by his loving wife Norma Oliva Mann for over 30 years. He is survived by his children Josh Jay Mann of Haverhill, his daughter Kathryn Mann of Ipswich, his sister Leland and the late Jerry Buckley of Topsfield, his sister Gay Folland of Conway, his brother the late Charles Mann, his stepchildren Jill and Scott Borek of Newbury, Joy McCune and her fiance Vincent of Boston, Robb and Stacey McCune of Sudbury, and his grandchildren Jack, Jacob, and Emma Forrest, Mackenzie and Sophia Enos, and Cooper and Maxwell McCune. Jeep will be dearly missed by all who were blessed to know him.

Services and burial will be private. The Twomey, LeBlanc, & Conte Funeral Home 193 High St. Newburyport, MA 01950 is assisting Mr. Mann’s family with his arrangements.
