Winston, Theodore 16 February 2016
Theodore Winston passed at age 92 on February 16. He was born to Hertha and Benny Weinstein in Los Angeles. His father died two years later leaving his mother, Hertha to raise him and his younger sister, Betty (pre-deceased). Ted, as he was known leaves his loving wife, Harriet. They were married for 66 years and would have celebrated their 67th anniversary in June of this year. He leaves his children, Hillarie(Keith) Levy, Cheryl (Ed) Anhalt, Laurie (John May) Knoot, and Brad (Helene) Winston. Ted was further blessed with 9 grandchildren and two great grandchildren. Ted was a WWII veteran serving in the Army Air Corp as an aircraft mechanic in Kingman, Arizona. He relished his memories of working on the B-17 Flying Fortress. He had a love of flying and sailing. Ted’s biggest passion and love of his life was his wife and their family. There was nothing he would not do or sacrifice for his family. Every year during the summer they went on a week long camping trip with Harriet and the 4 kids. Yosemite National Park was his favorite destination. This tradition of the family camping trip continued on when his children married and had their own children. By this time the camping trips were up to over 20 people at times. Grandpa Ted was in paradise during these times! Ted was a skilled mechanical engineer earning a BS and MS in Mechanical Engineering from USC. Go Trojans! Yes he was a life long USC Football fan. He used his mechanical engineering skills to design and build the family cabin in Lake Arrowhead which is enjoyed by his kids and grandkids to this very day. Ted’s kind and gentle demeanor were his trade marks in life. He could always be found smiling and finding the positive aspects of life. He was an iconic husband, father, grandfather and uncle. They broke the mold when God made this man. He will be sorely missed by all of us.
