Mark was born February 4, 1953, in Marion, Indiana, the son of Marion L. and Lois Woodhead Winterberg.

Mark was so many things to so many people. He was a hero, husband, son, brother, father, grandpa (Pa, PopPop), uncle and a friend. On July 18, 2021 he married Angie M. Heiner.

A good man with a calming presence and a strong work ethic. He truly gave the best hugs imaginable and had a heart of gold. Anyone who met him was a friend for life. His sense of humor and love for life was contagious. After moving to Columbus at a young age, Mark successfully graduated from Columbus High School in 1971. After graduating, he attended Vincennes University.

Mark found his love for football at an early age. He went on to coach the sport for many years at different levels, mentoring kids along the way. He enjoyed riding motorcycles and loved to “get away” on road trips.

Most recently, golfing with family and friends in his spare time brought him enjoyment
