L. Dick Winkler

April 15, 1953 — July 10, 2015

Dick Winkler, the son of LeRoy Richard Winkler Sr. and Marie (Ehms) Winkler, was born on April 15, 1953, at Creston, Iowa. Dick entered eternal rest on Friday, July 10, 2015, at Iowa Methodist Medical Center West, Des Moines, Iowa, at the age of 62 years, 2 months, and 25 days.
Dick attended and graduated from Creston High School. On April 17, 1987, he married Diana Fay Webb. They lived a short time in Osceola, but have spent most of the past 27 years in the Lorimor and Macksburg area. This union was blessed with the birth of a son, Cody.
Dick was a farmer and loved being on the farm. He grew soybeans and corn for his livestock, and he harvested and sold hay. Dick also drove a semi-truck over the road, primarily for Hy-Vee.
Dick liked to weld, making his own repairs on his equipment. He could fabricate a new idea to use in his farming operation. He also enjoyed woodworking and leather working. Dick was a perfectionist with his work. Dick became a good Christian man and followed the Lord. He was a good husband and father who cared deeply for his family.
Left to cherish Dick’s memory is his wife: Diana Winkler, Lorimor, IA.; his son: Cody Winkler, Lorimor, IA.; and other relatives and friends.
Preceding Dick in death were his parents, and his aunt Louise Winkler, who raised Dick after the death of his mother.
