Tyler Wayne Mann, the strongest, kindest, most loving person anyone could ever meet, passed away peacefully surrounded by his family and friends at The University of Michigan- Mott Children’s hospital on October 24, 2021, at the age of 23, after a battle of Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, and post bone marrow transplant complications. Tyler was born February 18,1998, in Kalamazoo, the son of Jeff and Shannon Mann. Tyler attended and played football at Mattawan Schools and graduated in 2016. Tyler went on to study Sports Management and play football at Manchester University, in North Manchester, IN. Tyler graduated from Manchester University in 2020 with his bachelors in Sports Management.

Tyler was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in August 2020, at the young age of 22 and put on a brave, determined face from the first moment of diagnosis.  Tyler did not let Leukemia, chemo treatments, or radiation stop him from shining and bringing smiles and happiness to everyone he encountered. Tyler threw himself into spending as much time as he could with his family and friends doing things he loved. Tyler spent hours watching sports and other loved shows with his family. When he was home, he would spend time having nerf gun wars with his nephew/godson Aedyn.

Tyler is survived by his parents, Jeff and Shannon Mann, his sisters Kaitlyn and Sierra Mann; his nephew Aedyn Mann; his paternal grandparents, Thomas and Carol Mann; maternal grandmother, Kerri Askin; several aunts, uncles, and cousins. Tyler was preceded in death by his maternal grandfather, Mark Askin Sr. Our family would also like to recognize Tyler’s football coaches, Ryan Brown, Nate Jensen, and Vincent Cashdollar; as well as his closest friends, Tyler Gilles, Tyler Lynn, Justin Thomas, Katie Green, Alex Downard, Dakotah Pratt, Joe Garling, and Ryan Dziewicki. Tyler’s family would like to thank these amazing friends of Tyler’s for becoming his family while he was away from home. You all have touched his life and will forever be a part of our family. Thank you for loving him and not ever letting the distance let you drift apart. You all meant more to Tyler than we could ever begin to describe, thank you for always loving and supporting him.
