BROTHER Howard Lee WINSTON, was born November 15, 1938 to the late Robert Winston, Sr. and Eva Winston of Rayville, Louisiana. He resided in his hometown of Rayville, until he relocated to Seattle, Washington in 1964.

In addition to his parents, Howard was preceded in death by his brothers Roy Winston (Lois), Willie Winston (Izola), & Robert Winston, Jr. (Barbara).

Howard peacefully passed away at his home on September 8, 2021 with his loving family at his side. He is survived by six of his siblings: Alonzo (Velena), Lemmie (Ora), Samuel, Abe, Odesta, and Anna; and a host of nieces, nephews, family and friends.
