Anthony Douglas Mann, son of Randy and Kim Chaplin was born May 14, 1978 in Osage, Iowa. He attended school in Mason City and graduated from the Mason City High School in 1997. While Tony was in school, he began working at the KIA radio station and later KIMT. Tony was involved with entertainment beginning at the age of 16, working in the music industry and developed his “Encore Mobile DJ” business which he had for over 19 years.

At the age of 21, Tony moved to Minneapolis and worked for Target where he was a front end manager and later at Best Buy. He was united in marriage to Christy Lindquist and to this union, two beautiful girls were born: Caitlin and Zoe. The family lived in Hayward, WI for three years before moving back to Mason City in 2006 where they made their home. He continued working for KIMT as a Master Control Specialist and later as a salesman for Lyons Toyota Dodge. Most recently, he was involved with the North Iowa Bulls as a videographer, drove for Odyssey Limousine and DJ’d for Kirks Custom DJ.

Tony’s passion in life was music; he sang and DJ’d for many events around the North Iowa area. He cherished his girls and family and spent much of his time with them. He loved photography and his personality was contagious, even for a brief meeting, you would part as friends.
He was a member of Bethlehem Lutheran Church and currently attended the Rhythm Church. He was a Mason of the Travelers Lodge 679 of Clear Lake.
