I met Winkler in late forties when he worked at the former Johnson Funeral Home location. I became reaquainted when he worshiped with us at Johnson Street Church of Christ. You were lucky to have this one-of-a-kind man for a father and husband. I cherish the privilege of knowing him. Linda Hooper

Wink or Papa as I called him opened his heart and home to me years ago. He taught me about family, home and the love of Christ. I will be forever greatful for those lessons. He was a wonderful and caring man. To Lee and the family my heart goes out to you. You have lost someone very special.
