I arrived at this page quite by accident and am saddened to learn about the passing of Dick Winters. Condolences to the family.

Back in 1975, I was a student in Mr. Winters' art humanities class, at Plano Senior High School. New to the school district, I had enrolled in his class upon the strong recommendation of a school guidance counselor.

Now, so many years later, most of my time in high school is just a blur. Yet, I do clearly remember a very small handful of truly exceptional teachers, whose knowledge and passion for teaching really motivated and excited their students. Mr. Winters was one of those exceptional teachers.

During my adult lifetime, I have had the opportunity to visit museums around the world and see first-hand what we studied in class. Although I can barely draw a straight line myself, the teachings of Dick Winters have enabled me the ability to recognize the beauty and history that lives within those paintings and sculptures.

Thank you Mr. Winters, for all the good things you have brought to the people around you.

Concluding on a lighter note, Dick's daughter Joyce was also a student in our class. On exam days, he would joke that Joyce had kept trying to sneak a peak at the test, the night before, while he was creating it! Having Dad for a teacher can be tough, but the two of them seemed to have a great father-daughter relationship.

R.I.P., Mr. Winters

I will never forget Dick Winters. I was a teenager at Spencer Memorial Baptist Church in Tampa and he impacted my life in a grand way. My name was Sue Baker. I am 70 today and live in Gainesville, Florida. Love to his family, Susan Raye

Mildred:

Even though Specer Memorial Baptist Church Baptist Church in Tampa, Florida no longer exists. My memories of Dick being my choir/youth director exist in my heart as if it were yesterday. I was the youngest church pianist Spencer Memorial Baptist ever had, following Casey, Sandra Moore, and her sister Deannie. With his constant encouragement I grew in my musical talent and my love for the Lord. I am now 68 years old and live in Largo, Florida. Even though my sight is almost gone, I can still play any song in any key. My memory of both you and Dick is still so fresh in my mind. My address is 2045 East Bay Drive,Apt 724 Largo, Fl. 33771. and my e-mail address is [email protected] Please contact me. Remember: this day Richard J. Winters is resting in the arms of his precious Lord and Savior.
