How sad and broken-hearted we are at the loss of our dear friend, Win. Win was a member of the Class of 1962 at Pendleton High School, Falmouth, KY. He was always a lot of fun, committed to many organizations and a great leader and most of all devoted friend.
He never forgot us - always keeping in touch with his beautiful, articulate letters and supporting our scholarship program.

Win, we will never forget you!
May God bless you, Rita, his brother Richard, and the family.

We extend our deepest condolences,
Carol Klaber, Falmouth, KY
And the PHS Class of 1962

Sorry to here of the passing of Win he was a great guy and I loved spending time with him when he would come into O'Malley's. The last few years we have been in the same football pool and fantasy league what a giant loss for all that knew him my prayers are with his family and friends.

WIN, I hate to know you have left us. You were so funny in Mrs.Elsia Doud's class rolled when you said you were Edwin Willey Taylor the not third, but something else. We thought that was funny. You always tried to keep us laughing. God bless and watch over our remaining family! Love you, friend.
