Age 57

Of Inver Grove Heights

Preceded in death by parents, Marvin and Margaret Mann and daughter, Sarah Ann. Survived by wife Katie; children Christina (Kyle) Sherwin, Courtney and Zachary Marvin; grandchildren, Blake and Mason; siblings, Pam Margolis, Stephen (Alicia) Mann, Penny (Dale) Cody and many nieces and nephews. Benjie passed away on October 24, 2017 surrounded by his loving wife and children. Benjie fought a courageous battle with cancer for two months.  He never complained and in true Benjie style, he was gracious ‘till the end. Benjie was co-owner of Mann Theatres with his brother, Stephen.  They successfully ran the family-owned theater chain for over 35 years. We will miss his heartfelt laugh and genuine kindness toward others. Benjie’s greatest joy in life were his children and grandchildren. No words can express the sadness of our loss. Our lives will forever be changed because of knowing him, and for that we are eternally grateful.  Visitation 3:00 - 7:00 PM Sunday, October 29 at Willwerscheid Funeral Home, 1167 Grand Ave., St. Paul.
