Our beloved son, brother, father, grandson, grandfather and friend, Michael L. Winterton, on a snowy day Dec. 17, 2006, completed his earthly work and is now with his Savior in sweet joyous peace.

Mike was born on Feb. 16, 1959 to Jean McDonald and Lary Winterton under the holy covenant. Mike was raised on a farm in Charleston and learned at an early age the true value of hard work. The many friends and those in need that came to his shop benefited both from his genuine friendship and the tremendous knowledge he possessed as he took care of their needs. Mike was a master mechanic for many years working on many tunnel projects throughout the state. Everyone Mike met, wherever he was, became his true unconditional friend forever. Mike possessed a tremendous love for his family and for his Savior. He set aside his spiritual time with the Lord on his daily walks along the canal with Kemo his beloved dog. Mike loved nature and all the beauty it beholds.

Mike is survived by his father and mother, Lary (Dot) Winterton and Jean Anderson; his grandmother Dawna McDonald; siblings: Susan Winterton and Jeff (Joanie) Winterton; sons: Riley Michael and Joseph Layne Winterton; grandson Korbin Winterton; and aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews; also his beloved friends Carolyn and Chuck Baggot.

He is preceded in death by grandparents Lynn McDonald, Stafford and Maude Winterton, and his Aunt Maxine and Uncle Nile.

Funeral services will be held Friday, Dec. 22 at 11 a.m. at Olpin-Hoopes Funeral Home. Families may call Thursday, 6 to 8 p.m. at the funeral home and also Friday, 9:45 to 10:45 a.m., prior to funeral services. Interment will be at the Charleston Cemetery.
