Former Oakland Raiders' kicker Errol Mann dies at 71

MISSOULA, Mont. — Errol Mann, the kicker for the Oakland Raiders team that won the 1977 Super Bowl, has died. He was 71.

Mann died on April 11 at his home in Missoula, said Sunset Memorial Funeral Home. Memorial services are scheduled Friday afternoon.

Mann was remembered by family and friends as a straight-forward, fun-loving, competitive man, the Missoulian (http://bit.ly/ZuJ6K5 ) reported.

"My mother was widowed and handicapped and raised us three," said Mann's sister, Bonnie Gran of Fergus Falls, Minn. "She always said, 'No quitters in this house.' I thought Errol really followed that through with his NFL career — overcoming injuries and the like.

"Everything Errol did, he did with determination," Gran said.
