Marcus "Mark" Alan Matheny, 77, of Grant, Fla., finished his race and went home to the Lord on Wednesday, April 28, 2021.

Mark was born on Dec. 17,1943 to Virginia and Jud Matheny in Logan, Ohio. Mark Matheny, known to many by the nicknames "Stubbie," or "Coach," attended Morehead State University on a football scholarship. His first coaching position was at Jackson, Ohio, where he developed lifelong friendships. He was a passionate Ohio State football fan and sports enthusiast. He enjoyed many hobbies, including playing tennis, fishing, and spending time with his beloved family and friends in his retirement.

Mark moved to Eau Gallie, Fla., in the early '70s. He taught and coached at Eau Gallie High School for nearly 40 years. The lives he touched were countless, and the nicknames he gave people were priceless. Mark loved everyone well. He judged no one and was a friend to all. Mark had a magnificent sense of humor. Making his family and friends laugh was one of his greatest joys.

In the year 2000, Mark had a life-changing encounter with Jesus and came to know him as his Lord and Savior. He was baptized at First Baptist Church of Melbourne, where he gained a church family that he treasured deeply and served well. He shared with others about the Lord until the final moments of his life.

Survivors include his wife Angie; son Josh (Jenna); daughters Ginny Blythe, Megan (Scott) Wilson, and Olivia (Marshall) Williams; grandchildren Emma, Ethan, Silas, Micah, Titus, Zeke, Angelina, Ava, Lane, and Bennett; a sister, Lynn (Dave) Kantner; and nephews Ray and Cullen Beach.

He was predeceased by his son-in-law Kevin Blythe.

A Celebration of His Life will be held at 4 p.m. Saturday, May 8, at First Baptist Church in Melbourne. A memorial is also being planned for July in Logan, Ohio.

There are just not enough kind words to describe this amazing man. He and Angie were among the first people I met 36 years ago when we moved to Florida. He was quite literally a father figure role model to my kids, and is surely the reason my oldest became an educator. He was always so kind, caring and funny. The strength that you embedded in your family through your actions and your faith will carry them through this difficult time. You will surely be missed, but remembered with laughter, warmth, amazing memories and so much love.

I wasn't one of his players, or a jock of any kind. Just a stupid kid who got into trouble and probably wouldn't have graduated high school if he hadn't intervened on my behalf. I had no way to know then how much that changed my life's trajectory. Thanks again, Coach!!!

On behalf of the Lunderman family, please accept my deepest sympathy. My father in law (Coach Lunderman) always remembered Coach Matheny with a smile, a story and endearment when he spoke of their times together. I loved him in high school just like so many and later as a neighbor! He was a sweet, kind hearted man who didn’t seem to know a stranger. I will never forget him and will keep you all in my heart during the coming difficult days.

I have known Marc (Stub) all my life. Grew up in Logan Ohio and I can tell you Marc was one of those people that made you laugh and was loved by everyone. Saw him last year when he was in town and he and Ginny and I met for lunch. As usual I walked away with a smile on my face after spending time with him. Rest in peace my friend, I for one will never forget you and the good times we had.
