Michael “Mac” Winn, 63, Ollie

OLLIE — Michael Ray “Mac” Winn, 63, of Ollie, passed away March 17, 2013, at the University of Iowa Hospital in Iowa City.

Michael was born on July 12, 1949, in Sigourney, the son of Merlin Dean and Deloris Lillian (Heston) Winn. On March 20, 1971, at the Ollie Baptist Church in Ollie, Michael and Connie Sue Kleinschmidt were united in marriage. They shared over 41 years of marriage before Mac’s passing and were blessed with three children, Joseph, Brittany and Raquel.

Mac was a self-employed dump truck owner and operator all his life. He owned and operated Mike Winn and Son Trucking. Mac was also a very talented man. He enjoyed working with and building old gas engines, helping his brother Bobby with bulldozer work, fishing, mushroom hunting and being at the shop. He was a member of the Ollie Baptist Church. He especially enjoyed his cabin along the Skunk River.

Mac is survived by his wife, Connie Winn of Ollie; their children, Joseph (Jessica) Winn of Fairfield, Brittany (Jess Cottrell) Winn and Raquel (Craig Smith) Winn, both of Ollie, and Alicia Eckley of Fairfield; and 11 grandchildren, Tessa, Lee, Deanna, Damian, Chloe, Tory, Kaden, Mason, Nevaeh, Mia and Blake; two sisters, Deanna (Delbert) Estes of Crawfordsville and Kathy (Don) Caviness of Knoxville; two brothers, Bob (Nancy) Winn and Bill (Peggy) Winn, both of Ollie; and numerous nieces and nephews who loved him.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Dean and Deloris.

Mac’s wishes were to be cremated with no planned services.  

A memorial has been established and may be given to Mac’s family in care of Brittany Winn.
