Longtime FFRF Member Harold Mann died in his Atlanta home on Nov. 20, 2018.

Born in 1928, he was raised and educated in Charleston, S.C. He left in 1950 to become an Army paratrooper.

His obituary in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution states: “Except for those Army years, he had a series of delightful and well-loved dogs, dear companions who adored him. He had an eclectic career from Wall Street to Cox Enterprises. He spent much of his life haunting libraries and recording many books for the blind. A life-long religious skeptic and agnostic, he found a spiritual home among Unitarians and secular humanists, many of whom he admired for their efforts to build a better world for us all.”

He is survived by his wife of 43 years, Sally Mitchell. Sally and Harold were instrumental in the forming of FFRF’s Alabama chapter and have been members of FFRF since 1984.
