One Mann’s Life
Nathan (Nate) Scott Mann was born in McPherson, Kansas on April 3rd, 1985. Nathan packed as much life as one person could in the 35 short years he had on this earth before he was tragically taken from us in a vehicle accident in Boonville Missouri on December 5th, 2020. Nathan always had a story for any occasion, never knew a stranger, and had friends all over the world.
Nate was born with a restless bone. He could not stay in one place too long and was always looking for that next adrenaline rush. After graduating from Inman High School in 2003, he enlisted with the Marines (if you are going to do it, go for the one that has the hardest reputation). During his time in the Marine Corps while stationed in Texas, Nate was exposed to what would become his lifetime passion of Bullfighting. Nate loved everything about the lifestyle including the people, the animals and the friendships that he formed. He traveled all over the country hauling bulls, fighting them, protecting the bull riders, and loved every second. Bullfighting and animals was his passion but it didn’t always pay the bills, so Nate had worked many jobs all over the country. For the last few years he drove a truck for various companies from Utah to North Dakota to Missouri.
Nate loved his family. He was Uncle Nate to his niece and nephew, Parker and Carter, and would spend hours doing whatever they wanted, even if that meant turning blue in the freezing pool water. His “family” spread far and wide. He had friends across the country and would literally give you the shirt off his back even if he had nothing else to give. Nate led a simple life in many ways, didn’t ask for a whole lot, expected nothing from life, but gave everybody he knew all he had. Nate also loved animals. If there was a dog that needed a home, or needed rescued, Nate was the guy. He lived life to the fullest every day and lived life his way to the end.
Nathan (Nate) will forever be loved and missed by his Mom, Brenda (Craig) Druecker, Dad Don Mann, Sister Danea Harmony, Brothers Blake and Logan Druecker, Niece and Nephew Parker and Carter Harmony, Grandmothers Billie Jean Pedigo and Jane Druecker as well as many Aunts, Uncles, Cousins and Friends. He was preceded in death by his Grandparents Carl Huseman, Don and Carol Mann, Jay Druecker and Jack Pedigo.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Nate Mann's Go-Fund-Me, your local Humane Society or the ASPCA.
