I STARTED WATCHING JONATAN WINTERS IN 1950 AND HE HAS ALWAYS BEEN MY FAVORITE AND HE IS SORLEY MISSED RIP PEACE OLE FRIEND
To Jonathan Winters,
You were a very talented actor and comedian. My prayers go to your family and friends. Lisa Weiner
I used to watch the Smurfs when I was a little boy.. In the 90's.. Remember I watched a VHS cassette of the Smurfs when it was a cartoon.. When I saw the first Smurf film, a blue memory struck.. Our beloved Papa and his many smurf-children, hehe..
May you rest peacefully and warm our blue hearts.. Whenever we look up at the blue skies, we see you. And all the love and joy you've given us.. We will NEVER EVER forget you..
Rest In Peace, Papa Smurf.. Smurfs will never ever be the same without you..
He was everyone's favorite Uncle.
When I saw your name and remembered the many laughs you brought to myself and many others. May the memories of your fine works be rich with God. Proverbs 22:1
I had the opportunity to drive Mr. Winters to the Skippers home during his visit for the USA show in 1986. It was one of the MOST memorable 30 minutes of my life! I laughed so hard I had to stop the little car! Thank you Mr. Winters...R.I.P.
From childhood to now older adult... the only person to make me laugh my whole life. Thanks Jonathan, you deserve heaven.
I have loved and admired Jonathan since 1952, when I was 8 years old. I watched and listened to him, and he helped to shape the way I look at and live in the world. He was truly one of the geniuses of show business, like Steve Allen, Stan Freberg, Dave Garroway, and Ernie Kovacs. But Jonathan will always be distinct and separate, and when they open the "time capsules" of the past, his humor will still be funny. What a guy; thanks so much for brightening my way!
He was one of my heroes. His greatest lesson was that if life is not going well, you can always become someone else for a little while, just by changing your voice.
"Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints." -Psalm 116: 15.Genius, pure genius R.I.P.
Such a funny guy. May the Almighty God grant the family comfort during these difficult days. Romans 15:33
Jonathan Winters was a grand master of the art of comedy. He was all of the characters he ever created or portrayed, all in one lifetime. We are diminished.

He was a keeper, he was very funny. My sympathy to family. Acts 17:27
I will miss your uncanny and superhuman sense of humor. It feels like I lost a family member in a way because I grew up watching you on TV. R.I.P. Johnathan.

I want to thank you for all of the laughter that you brought to me. I will miss you . I wish your family and friends well.
The passing of Jonathan Winter's is like losing a family member. There will never be another Jonathan. He always made our whole family roar with laughter and without any vulgarity. What a treasure. We are sad and will miss him greatly. Our prayers to the family in his passing.

Dear Lucinda and Jay, it's the Hollis family from Bermuda. We are so sorry to hear of the loss of your precious Dad. We lost our Dad, age 90, in his sleep, on April 12th, less than 24 hours after your Dad's passing. We found great comfort in that, imagining them sharing stories up in heaven. We so fondly remember those holidays, when we were young, with you and your Mom and Dad at Cambridge Beaches, boating, collecting clams, and hearing your Dad tell jokes and making us laugh! He and your Mom came to my opening show of Up With People in 1973!I could go on and on! Thanks for the memories!
You mage me forget my troubles even if it was just for 5 minutes, ten minutes or an hour. Thank you for the laughter.
Love you forever! Thank you for bringing joy! :)

Ever since I was a kid Jonathan Winters has made me laugh more than any other comedian past or present, that has now been the last 43 years. His greatness put him in a class all of his own. The world has lost a true genius. My condolences to his daughter, son and family.
When I was a teen,I tried to Imitate Mr Winters so much that my Dad had to tell me to "knock it off" at the dinner table. He was the greatest in his prime and will be sorely missed.Once I was at the Ventura,Ca. gun show(yes he was a firearms enthusiast) I had the opportunity to tell him how he impacted me.Im a big guy and when I walked up behind him and introduced myself he said in his instantanious way"I didn't know if I should shake your hand or get a Bat!" We talked,he was a great and good Man. God will enjoy.
Jay...sorry about the loss of your dad. I enjoyed stories you shared with me about him. Take care...Lupita
My wife once asked "you don't seem to like comedy". My reply " The only comedian who could make me laugh until I cried was Jonathan Winters." He did not depend on cussing or belittling others. Comic genius and most likely a very nice man. Never met Mr. Winters but eternally grateful for his ability to make me laugh. Thank you and may you rest in peace.
Thank you Jonathan for all of the laughter you brought to me as a child and a grown up. You will truly be missed. Peace n many blessings to your family
Please accept my sincere condolence.May you find comfort that your loved one is resting peacefully with no pain or suffering.
I first met you in 1960. We had lots of good conversations.I even sold you some collectibles.Thanks from all of us for the humor, so needed in this world.
Thank you Jonathan for all the wonderfull years of making people laugh you were my favorite 'RIP".
Thank you Jonathan Winters for all the laughs you gave us. Your humor was so good.
May you find comfort in Jesus words that if a man exercises faith in him, even though he dies, will live again.His humor was timeless. He will be missed.
RIP Mr. Winters. Thanks for making me laugh all those years.
Bob P Collingswood, NJ
Aa a child you brought much laughter and joy into my families lives thank you. RIP
There is so much misery in this kooky world. You can't get enough laughter, it's the best therapy. Thank you Jonathan for the relief. It lives on in memory and through Robin and that wacky Carrey guy, et al. You were brilliant, and funny as all get out, and so very human/humane. Thank you. Rest now. To Mr. Winter's family, so sorry for your loss, our loss. Thank you too for sharing his sublime gift.
I will be praying for the Lord Jesus to comfort you all during this time of mourning. Jonathan was a special talent.and will be missed by all. GOD BLESS the family.
May his family know God's peace in their loss. Millions of his admirers are praying for his loved ones to find peace. Jonathon will never be forgotten for his comedy genius & he was a gentle man----A fan
I always looked forward to the times he would appear on Johnny Carson, or other entertainment shows. He epitomized that clean humor IS possible.
You ALWAYS made me smile - thank you for all the joy and laughs - Peace to your family - RIP
It is comforting to know that Jesus, the Ruler of God's Kingdom, is called the “Prince of Peace,” and he will ensure that “to peace there will be no end.”—Isaiah 9:6, 7.

Comedy, it's said is born of pain....your pain, if any, TURNED-TO-JOY -& relieved many CERTAINLY,turning-on SMILES,AND REAL LAUGHTER THRU YOUR VIEW OF THE HUMAN CONDITION!! It, like Red Skelton's, was DEVOID of BLUE MATERIAL....JUST REAL THOUGHT of LIFE- THAT NEEDED NO SHORTCUTS IN USING DIRT. If you sought refuge, may you have found it in its fullness; if pain, may you now be JUST AS RELIEVED AS A CREATOR CAN CURE ONE - one WHO CURED SO MANY MOMENTS FOR OTHERS WITH PURE JOY in COMEDY IN INTERPRETING LIFE. REST IN PEACE AND JOY. TO YOUR LOVED ONES, HAPPY MEMORIES AND WITH TIME, PEACE..we're all blessed in sharing his time here-thanks,Jonathan Ginn,Atlantic Hlds, N.J.

Mr. Winters was my favorite comedian of all time. His genius will never be matched. No comedian today even comes close. Thanks for all of the joy you brought to me growing up."Great joy comes in laughter, may you bring the Lord that joy. God Bless, and rest in peace.
A wonderful, wonderful entertainer who did not have to resort to profanity and "shock" comedy to be funny, unlike so many of today's comedians.
His versatility and talent were amazing!
Thanks and rest in peace, Jonathan......
"Uncle" Johnny Winters....simply the BEST...you made us laugh till we cried...the likes of you we shall never see again.....

Jonathan Winters was my favorite comedian. He was a laugh a minute, good clean stories, swear? never! His humor was exceptional, brilliant and performed at a drop of a hat. Even that remark would be a laugh. God Bless you and may you rest in peace Mr. Winters.
As one of the many who grew up watching you on Jack Paar and your own show and the many movies, I vividly recall your wonderfully creative brand of humor. ("they know in the forest...") One could cry thinking about the loss of such a talent, but then you can't help but laugh remembering the many entertaining moments. Godspeed Mr. Winters!
I always watched your show with my grandfather. We laughed so hard we had fun. R.i.p. U will b missed.
I love you, Jon. Thanks for all the great memories! RIP Jon ... you are the man!! You saved me from myself knowing being funny was okay!

Mr. Winters, I hate to say I grew up with you, but you grew me up. Thank you very much!
My favorite was grandma fritter
I am saddened by the death of Jonathan Winters and extend my condolences to his family and friends. I am especially grateful to him for bringing my father and I closer together than we might otherwise have been. When I was about 10 years old, my Dad purchased some Jonathan Winters albums, among the first he made in the early 60s. We would sit and listen to them over and over until we had the routines practically memorized. His comedy helped my Dad and I relate to one another. We never failed to go through his routines whenever we were together and they always made us laugh. My Dad is gone now, and now so is Mr. Winters. I will miss them terribly.
One of a kind
Just that...one of a kind. Rest now.....
Thanks for all the grins you Jonathan.You were the best.
A comedic icon who not only kept it clean but was able to cause people to be doubled over with laughter with his ability to see the humor in all things. A truly rare and wonderful person.
Thank you Jonathan Winters for all the laughs, smiles and memories. I am proud to have spent seveal years living in Clayton a few miles from Dayton, Ohio. You made all of Ohio as well as the nation proud of you. RIP and may God Bless You. Thank you!
Jon was the first comic to ever make me laugh so hard I peed myself...thanks for showing me that whacky and weird could be so much fun!
First of all Mr. Winters, thank you for your service to our country.
Thank you for the many times you brought smiles and laughter into my life. I'll always remember you and Jack Buck during a Cardinal's game where you were "Whip Willis" an old retired ball player and how well you two worked together.
You have provided us with many years of entertainment and you will be missed.
My deepest sympathies to Mr Winters family. When I think of Jonathan Winters I smile. He is now in heaven doing what he did best making people laugh.
R.I.P., Jonathan! Thanks for the many, many laughs throughout the years. Blessings to his family! You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Thanks for the many wonderful memories, all the much needed laughs and the many rays of sunshine you brought to our lives! You made this world a much better place, and you'll be sorely missed. God Bless you and until we meet again.

Mr. Winters thank you for all the wondeful memories and the laughs you gave us all. We would laugh till we cried at times. Those were the days!
I met Jonathan at the Santa Barbara Writers Conference in the late 80's. After his talk, he spent hours telling stories to an enthralled group of writer wannabes in the hallway because that was the kind of guy he was. My heart goes out to you Lucinda and your whole family. Jonathan's memory will live in the heart of anyone who ever met him. Peace and love to him and you.

Thank you for sharing your gift Mr Winters. I remember watching my Dad and Mom laughing so hard from your comedy. And growing up and laughing from your comedy. You were the master!! May you fill the heavens with laughter as you have this earth. My thoughts and prayers to Mr Winters family.
When I was young you made me laugh. As I got older your comedy continued to make me laugh even when I didn't want to. The world is losing yet another of its greatests funny men. Men who could evoke a laugh with simple everyday living and life situations, not like the comedy of today where fun is poked at specific people without though or compassion for his or her situation. You will be missed. Rest in peace Mr. Winters or perhaps you will have them laughing and giggling when you reach the pearly gates!!
Thank you for years of laughter. RIP big guy.
May you keep the Lord laughing as much as you did us. Take care and God Bless
My thoughts and prayers are for the family of Jonathan Winters. Take confort in the knowledge that Jonathan gave us wonderful gifts by sharing his gifts of comedy and laughter.

Watched you growing up. You were so funny, you will be miss. RIP Jonathan Winters.
Thanks, Jonathan for all the joy you've brought to this world. You'll be greatly missed.
He was the only comedian who instantly after watching his facial and body lanuage and listening to the character he presented would make me laugh my stomach would ache. He certainly was a genius.
TO: Johnathan Winters Family,
May the peace which comes from the memories of love shared,

Dear Lucinda and Jay,
I am praying and asking God to comfort y'all during this time of grief. I LOVED your Dad's creativity, humor and wit and I am sitting back and remembering ALL the times he made me laugh. He was a GOD SEND to y'all and I HOPE y'all realize that. I know (because I lost my Mom and Dad) how sad this time in your life is, BUT, I am praying that y'all will be depending on God to get you through this season in your lives. I KNOW that your Dad was given a Special Blessing from God to be able to possess the talent that your Dad had. I feel that there are possibly millions of people that were sick in bed, in the hospital or simply confined to their recliner and your Dad lifted their spirits which caused them to be able to continue to enjoy life as they were BLESSED by his antics !!!! I will continue to pray for y'all, lifting y'all up to God for direction and understanding. "God BLESS You, And Yours" !!!! <
I was Jonathan's CPA for many years. Whenever he would call, he always started out in the voice of some character. I would play his straight man and we could carry on a great conversation that would eventually end up with the reason he call.
I'll miss you Jon.
Always classy and very funny. Thank you for your humor and keep on laughing in heaven. Rest in Peace.
HE Will Raise You Up On Eagle's Wings,
Bear You On The Breath Of Dawn,
Make You To Shine Like The Sun,
And Hold You In The Palm Of HIS Hand.

I grew up listening and watching Jonathan Winters. My father loved his humor and watching him was a family pastime. We even had his early records. We laughed and laughed. He brought much enjoyment throughout my life. I loved him on "Mork and Mindy." Seeing him and Robin Williams together was the best. My deepest condolences to Jonathan's family. He will be deeply missed by all.
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
Heaven has a great comedic genius to keep them in stitches. God Bless you Jonathan for all the great memories.
Sad news for the folks who were blessed by his wonderful bag of tricks. As he and those who entertained the 60s kids are vanishing, their true comedy & rare performing techniques are all the more realized.

In My Pocket
I have memories in my pocket.
They rattle among the change.
My memories of you are treasures I carry wherever I go.
They are stored in bits and pieces, parts of a beautiful whole
They give me comfort when I think I am alone.
Yes, I have memories in my pocket, like so much other stuff I keep there.
But of all the treasures I have, it's the memories of you that are the most precious.

To the Winters family, I saw your dad at Perkins on north limestone street several years ago. He remembered my parents from high school. He was so kind and humble. They don't make them like him any more. i am so much better having met him.
I love you! And you will be missed but always remembered!
God bless you and your family on this very sad day..... You were the greatest !
Thanks for all the many laughs you provided. You will be missed by many. R.I.P., Mr. Winters. Denise Gitchell, Binghamton,N.Y.
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.
Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."
It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.
God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.
When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.
I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.
There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.
If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.
So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.
And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.
Ruth Ann Mahaffey (author)
You will always live in our hearts and prayers.
I loved him. He made us laugh & smile. He will be truly missed.
I loved him. He made us laugh & smile. He will be truely missed.
He will be truly missed!! He was a one-of-a-kind person!! He really made me laugh!! So sorry to his fanily for their loss!!
You helped me get through hard times, both with your humor and as an example of how one gets through hard times. Your comedy was prescient in its understanding of people beyond description. Love you, Jonathan; I am one of millions that do. RIP gentle soul.
I had a Belly Laugh every single time I watched you...thanks for sharing your creative genius!
Thank you Mr. Winters, I went to a taping of J.R. Puff n Stuff as a child. You will make Heaven a brighter place! I loved your comedy, and very warm smile. You graced our world with love and laughter. Rest Happily !
As we live in Austria part time just last week I was watching tv and saw the movie with the good actors from the old days, Spencer Tracy and Jonhathan and the rest of the group, it was not in English and my wife said you can't understand it, I told her it was a super mover with ever one running around looking for the money and the actors were good and there was no need to understand them speaking English, I could just look at them and tell what was going on. The actors in that Mad movie was super, they was not shooting up the town or killing ever one and no bad talk, that was the time of the good movies, not like all the crap today at the movies and on tv. Jonathan was a super man, when I was younger it was so much fun to see him on the tv shows, he could make ever one feel good. I hope you made it to Heaven and are meeting all your fellow actors and talking about the good old days. So God bless you Mr. Winters and your family. RIP
We will miss Jonathan Winters laughter he gave us for so many years. Prayers to his family.
My Prayers to the Family and Friends, he will be truly missed.
I was taken by surprised that mr. Winters had passed. He was such a funny comedian, that was funny, so very elegant , in showmanship. My father god sent a lovely flower and now he have ask for his return.
I watched you as a young boy and thought you were the funniest man alive. I'm now 62 and still think the same. You made millions laugh without ever using a bad word. Children and their parents could watch you together and laugh as a family. You were and are still the funniest man ever. Semper Fi and thank you Sir for your service. I'm sure you putting on a show now entertaining God and his Angels. Rest in peace Mr. Winters.
Rest in the arms of our Lord now Mr Winters. You were 1 heII of a great comic, my fondest tv memory is you portraying baby (man) Mearth on Mork and Mindy, you played that character sooo well as did with other comedic roles you did over the yrs. Sadly natural comedic talent is hard to find in this day and age. Comics think they have to be obscene, violent in order to be funny, thats why you, Lucy Ball, and NUMEROUS other comic greats have stood the test of time whereas they wont with just a couple of exceptions.
Jonathan, your voice and humor will be missed. While everyone in heaven is shedding tears of laughter, we on earth are shedding tears of sadness. Rest in peace. Condolences to Jonathan's children.
Thank you Mr. Winers, You were a wonderful role modle. In grade school, I tried my darndest to do your work in front of class. My favorite was the frog catching flies. We lost a treasure but what amazing memories. Deon
Bless all of Mr. Winter's family and friends. What a true talent, one of the best!!!!!!!
There are more smiles in heaven, then here on earth after this day. What a funny man. I wish i could have meet him. So sorry for your loss.
R.i.p. You Were the best!
may peace be with your family and friends. you will be missed.
MY DEEPEST SYMPATHY TO THE FAMILY. OH THE JOY AND LAUGHTER YOU BROUGHT TO OUR HOME. THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES! R.I.P.

Icon of comedy. he'll be sorely missed, Genius...................Jack PEdwards,Rockaway ,NJ
As a member of the class of 43 at Springfield High School, I am wondering if as I walked the corridors of shs, I might have passed Jonathan Winters. I became an Episcopal Priest in 1956 and learned that Mr. Winters was a lay reader in the Episcopal Church. I wrote him a letter thanking him for his service to the church. I recd a response from him. why i didn't frame it and hang it on my wall, I'll never know. I loved him in The Russians are Coming The Russians are coming and will probably get it out of the libr. and look at it in his memory. God bless him, I'll bet he's doing improv for st. Peter right now. Fr. Lew Towler, Ann Arbor, Mich.
He was a funny man.He will be missed
He owned improvisation comedy. Nobody has ever done it better.
Mr. Winters was a comic genius with no need to be nasty or profane. There will never be another as with as much class, talent and humbleness. Thank you, Jonathan, and thank you Lord, for sharing him with us for so long.
Such a funny, brilliant comedian! Thank you Jonathan Winters for so much fun and laughter.
I always felt pride when I stated that this wonderful comedian was from Dayton, Ohio. I never once saw him perform without laughing. He was one of the funniest man on earth. Rest in peace.
Sorry to learn of Mr . Winters passing he was an all time comedy great and a master of improvisation comedy!Your wonderful humor will live on!R.I.P. WONDERFUOUR HUMOR WILL LUIVE
The world has lost a giant in the comedy industry. I remember watching him on tv as a child. He will be missed RIP Mr Winters
God bless your wit and you. You were the greatest.
I remember seeing Jonathan in the mid sixties when I was a little boy and every time he came on television, I would laugh until I cried. He was a pure comedic genius and will be sadly missed.
Will never forget your wonderful performances. May the Lord be with all of your family at this time.
YOU WERE SO FUNNY I JUST LOVED YOUR JOKES.WILL MISS YOU,RIP KEEP THEN LAUGHING,WHEREVER YOU ARE. N Mays

An Awesome actor, friend, neighbor and family man. May he truly Rest in Peace and those left behind live lifes so that you can be together again...Thank You for the Sweet Memories of Talent and showmanship....
To the Winters Family. Your Dad was a joy to watch on TV. I remember watching the Ed Sullivan show and laughing until I was almost in tears. We wanted him, but God wanted him more. Now Jonathan will make God laugh. Rest in Peace Jonathan. We all loved you very much.
So very odd but so funny... Gonna miss your unique humor :(
May he Rest In Peace I loved watching him growing up I loved how he made me laugh such a wonderful man with a wonderful sense of humor. God Bless his family and loved ones.
You looked like my father, you talked like my father, my father adopted your humor, and I lost my father last year, I hope you two meet. My heart is broken, another beautiful soul lost to the ages and my laughter will turn to sadness. God Bless you Mr. Winters, the world was a better place because of you
You always made me laugh, even in my darkest hour, thank you
I will miss him and his wonderful, off-beat humor. Goodbye Mr. Winters. And thank you.

Such a funny guy-he was so great in "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World." Heck, he was funny even in those Hefty Trash Bag commercials. Rest in peace, Jonathan.
have always been so proud to say jonathan winters like myself is from springfield
Thanks for your humor and making the world a better place. God Bless.
Have to wonder what it must of been like being in Marine boot camp with Jonathan Winters? Bet even the DI'S had a tough time keeping straight face. RIP Mr. Winters and who wouldn't miss this great funny man.
I have never signed a guest book for a celebrity, but if Jonathan Winters is not deserving, the no one is. Like him I was pretty much an only child and entertained myself. Jonathan for me was the kind of person who just not made me laugh, he would have be rolling on the floor, unable to breath, peeing in my pants laughing. The people who made me laugh the most were Jonathan Winters, Peter Sellers and W.C Fields. Thanks for the great memories. Sitting here I began to go into many of his routines. Bless you Mr. Winters and your family.
It saddens me,that such a great talent such as Mr. Winters has passed.I grew up listening to & watching him on TV. He was a very funny man.May he rest in piece.God bless him,he will be missed.
He was such a great comedian and I'd loved "Maude". Heaven just welcomed a very funny guy and he will be missed.
Come back to Dayton. Your work is over and you deserve your rest.We are all waiting for you. God Bless.
ThANx 4 thE lAUghs Mr. Winters !! : ) Rest Easy
One of the funniest human being who ever lived. Rest in peace, Marine.

Cheer everyone up there. you are the BEST.
You were Great entertaining those of us stationed at Ramstein Air Force Base in Germany with Suzanne Sommers in 1982, you stayed back stage spending time telling stories and entertaining us enlisted folks instead of staying in the dressing room like the other stars did, Thanks for making the world a funnier place and making us forget about our worries with your humor, I picture you entertaining the Angels in Heaven surrounded by your Loved Ones, Thank You for being You.
Mr. Jonathan Winters was a Incredible Comedian. I have a lot of wonderful memories of Mr. Winters. I am very proud be born in the same city (Dayton) as Mr. Winters. My heart go out to his family and may He Rest In Peace. God Bless You Mr. Jonathan Winters!
Just a wonderful human being. Thank You sir for all the laughs, and for making me laugh hen I was down. God Bless you and your family!
The best part of mad mad world was when he destroyed the gas station. Rest in peace.
My all time favorite comic is gone. I can't stop crying...he was the first human to make me howl and bend over with laughter. He was the very best! And he did a grand job of passing his style on to Robin Williams...my second favorite comic. God rest dear precious Jonathan's soul! Thanks for all the laughs...I admired him beyond words.
A great talent and I admired him, as long as I can remember. He was a funny guy and I will miss him. I am sure, he is making everyone, very happy, in heaven. I am glad, I got to see him on tv and in "It's a Mad,Mad,Mad,Mad,World." movie. Thanks, Jonathan for making me, happy!
I grew up waiting for you to show up on TV and to this day still try to do your characters. Goodbye for now, Mr.Pike. I hope that family finally got their furniture and didn't miss the bike, it was a little girl's bike....
An incredible artist on many levels. I will miss him in this world...

He will be truely missed by family, friends, and people from all walks of life. R.I.P. Mr. Winters. You truely were "simply the best". God Bless youand your family.

in many of my voice-over endeavors. I shall miss him greatly and remember him, always.

'Anxious worry in the heart of a man is what will cause the heart to break down, but a good [or encouraging] word is what makes the heart rejoice.' (Proverbs 12:25) Thanks to Mr. Winters and all his proteges for the good and funny words that lift our hearts.
Johnathan you gave me so many memories and laughter growing up as a child and as an adult.You will be missed. God has some laughs coming....
As children we have imaginary friends who we talk to until one day we cross the rubicon and the innocence of our youth is replaced by a world who labels such activity as unacceptable. Jonathan taught us all that you never need cross that border and our friends are always there for us, imaginary or real. R.I.P. my mentor from one of your millions of real friends. J.W.
Jonathan's mother, Alice Bahman, was on my staff at Wize, Springfield, Ohio, so I saw him occasionally when he visited. So talented and very funny. He gave me a 5-min monograph of a New York cab driver while sitting in my office. Took me all day to stop laughing. Ernie Gudridge.
The term " One of a Kind" is often used........but in this case. More than deserved......Rest in peace my friend, and above all,,,,,,,,"Thank You for the laughter" ..
I'm so sorry for your loss. May the god of comfort be with you and your family during your time of grief.
To the Winters Family, Jonathan was a genius in comedy. My parents & I always loved seeing him on tv. You'd never know who he would be next. he was well loved by his fans. You have a special angel watching over you in Heaven.
R.I. P. Jonathan we'll miss you
My condolences to the family and friends. Please gain comfort in the memories of a life well lived and the the peace God provides by prayer to Him.
Winters was a generous soul and always put out the word to our Dominican seminary that we were welcome and gave the months his retreat was available for our use for no charge.I missed him on the talk shows. But his TV obituary had highlights that had me holding my stomach with laughter and I remember his spontaneous characters peppering his "Tonight" show interviews and Carson's adapting "AUnt Blabby" retorts with Ed McMahon! Right up there with the greatest generation of showbiz! God bless you, Jonathan.
this great comic proved that funny is not filled with vulgarity. he made us laugh without four letter words. he will be a comic ledgen. maybe imitated but never duplicated.

He will be greatly missed by all of us, but he lives on through all of our memories, that will never be forgotten. May GOD bless his Family, and many, many friends Thanks Jonathan for all of the laughter/smiles and many memories. GOD bless.
I grew up in Springfield, OH and vividly remember the radio announcer who was breaking the news of the death of Jonathan Winters' mother. He stated "Alice Bahman, dead of a fart attack", then got the giggles and never recovered on the air. He was promptly fired, but I've never forgotten that broadcast. RIP Jonathan - you will be missed!

One of the funniest things I ever witnessed was Jonathan Winters, Park Overall, and Robin Williams on the Tonight Show near the end of Johnny Carson's run They took over the show, Jonathan in his union calvary suit, Park with her pint of supposedly Alabama moonshine, and Robin being Robin; Johnny Carson was speechless from laughter as was I. RIP JW, Thanks for all the laughs!

Jonathan was one of a kind. When he was made they broke the mold. The mention of his name brings a smile to my face and lifts my heart. I believe God loves humor so He must love Jonathan.
Such a funny guy! He never failed to make me laugh - what a priceless gift he gave for so many years.
Thanks, for being crazy to be normal and making it normal to be crazy. My Condolences to the family
Thank you for teaching me what true comedy is! I will always find laughter and pass it on. RIP Mr. Winters, ill miss you!

he and I had the same 6th great grand father so maybe one day I will meet him
He was one of a kind R.I.P
"Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints,"-Psalm 116:15.A Gifted comic who made life so much more enjoyable. God bless you.
Jonathan, you were a wonderfully funny man of the "old school". Truly a class act. We will miss you here, but I know you'll be entertaining everybody in Heaven. May God rest your soul.
You were a true comedic genius. Whenever we miss you we can visit you on YouTube where you sure will give us a good laugh again like you always did. Rest in Peace.

Eee ne nina nino nan na ne ne na no
We lost a great one. The current tribe of foul mouthed buffoons in comedy today, should pay attention to his great brand of humor.
Rest in Peace Big Guy.
I enjoyed when you came.out with the scooby doo episodes
You never knew what was coming with Mr. Winters and when it came you would laugh out loud. He always made Johnny Carson laugh out loud. My Grandmother loved him and Carson. God Bless his Family. He will always Live in the Light.
My prayers and heartfelt condolences to the Winters family. There aren't enough words to say just how much I enjoyed listening and watching Jonathan perform. As a young boy in Hamilton, Ohio watching him on black and white TV in the 60's doing Maude Frickert and his other characters.....he had me in tears from laughing so hard and it never changed up to this day. Now I have tears of sorrow for his passing but know that he will always make me laugh. He definitely was a national treasure for sure. Rest in Peace Mr. Winters; you will be missed.
He had a way of making you laugh. God be with family,friends&fans.
Jonathan Winters never lost the precious gift we all have as children, imagination. He was as much a poet as a comedian as he painted detailed images of all the characters that he met through life, capturing their gestures, voice, and expressions but more than that- their humanity. His quicksilver mind and infectious grin will be so greatly missed.
OMG - Jonathon has joined Maud Frickert, Lamar Gene Gumbody, Willard Kretchlow, Maynard Suggins.....and all the other wonderful characters he created for us. His wacky wonderful humor will live on forever....he was one of a kind!!
I adored you as a kid and then as an adult! Thanks Jonathan for all the laffs!
Thanks for the laughs Jonathan. May you Rest in Peace.
thank-you Mr. Winters, may you rest in peace.
Thank You Jonathan YOU made us Laugh out loud making the world a better place.
you were one of my all time favorites,your clean humor was a god send,and some of the things you would do and holding back laughter was remarkable,you do not have to cuss to make people laugh and you held high standards,i loved watching you on letterman,i could go on and on,its very sad but also very true because god got a great one today because he has you
Thanks for all of the laughter without using nasty words. R. I. P.
A true first class guy. Ones like him only come once in a lifetime. Thanks for all the laughs.
My salute to you and RIP to a very funny guy that gave me many laughs.
I was terribly saddened to learn of the passing of a very funny man, Jonathan Winters. Maude Frickert and Elwood Suggins will never be the same. Oh how many times I have
laughed at this man till the tears ran down my leg.
He was the master of comedy. God bless you Jonathan for the joy you have spread around the world. Another giant from the entertainment world has left us. God bless you
sir for a job well done, and thank you for your service to
this country while in the Marine Corp .. Semper Fi.
" A life that touches the hearts of others goes on forever"
I liked a lot of Winters. I enjoyed his character on "It's A Mad, Mad, Mad World" especially the way he interacted with the rest of the cast.
REST IN PEACE. MY FIREND YOU WILL BE MISSED.
Just the thought of you, Mr. Winters, causes me to smile.
Dear Winters Family, We all share your loss. He was a wonderful Man. God Bless.
A true comic genius, yet I could still see the sadness in his eyes. Just as there was the same sadness in the eyes of Richard Pryor, I truly believe in the saying you gotta laugh to keep from crying. My beloved Jonathon, you were so funny especially as Maude Fricket when you said "all over my body". Good bye my little Buckeye, you made OHIO proud!
To the family of Jonathan Winters may God give you the peace that you need now , Jonathan you were one of our greatest comedian of our time may you R.I.P.
You were THEE FUNNIEST MAN EVER, A True Original Comedian...RIP # 1.
I am in deep mourning...he gave great life and love to the lives of all of us...what a treasure! Saw him onstage in Palm Desert CA two years ago - we knew it might be the last time...Rest in peace, Jonny! CL

A major loss of a true comic genius. I remember his bits for the past 50+ years and am still in awe of his immense talent. RIP my friend..say hello to Carlin, Pryor, et al.
God, be with this family during their time of loss. Family, please know that you shared Mr. Winters' most endearing traits…joy, love, wit, talent, intelligence, spontaneity, willingness to give, especially love, with the rest of the world. I appreciate the family's selflessness. Mr. Winters, rest-in-peace. God bless you for what you gave us.
Jonathan will dearly be missed. His talent was matchless. My sincere condolences to the family. May God give the family strength to endure. Psalm 147:3
We were so sorry to hear about the death of Jonathan Winters. We grew up watching him on Mork and Mindy and also on the Sonny and Cher show. He brought everyone so much laughter.

Jonathan Winters did a weekly CBS primetime comedy show in 1967-68 that was pure gold. No one was ever funnier or half as original. He deserved a dozen Emmys for the work he did on that program alone. He was one of a kind. He had no successful imitators.
The grate 1 ,youll be sadly missed,you were a true legend.May god be with you ,and also your family .And may your memories live on for ever.Patrick Robinson. email@example.com

I always enjoyed watching him. Made me laugh so much! One of the best comedians.
To the family of Jonathan Winters - my late husband passed away at the age of 54. He was a resident of Shanghai 1940-1058. When he came to New York, he quickly immersed himself with music, Jewish Coffee Cafes, and comedy. One of his most awesome times was sharing a drink with Johnny at La Fonda Del Sol in Manhattan. Mr. Winters was one of the few people he told his story to of living in Shanghai through the War and the Communists. Mr. Winters had the ability to turn sorrow into laughter. Robert never forgot his kindness. You will have wonderful memories all your life. Thank you.
Thank you Jonathan...It is a Mad Mad Mad Mad World without you!
Truly a very funny and special man, one of the greats. Thank you Mr. Winters for all the laughs and the other great comedians that you inspired. Rest In Peace and my sincere condolences to your family and friends.

Oh, you dear soul, may Our Lord be waiting for you with a heavenly host --all with wide 'grins' on their countenance.
I had the pleasure to meet Mr. Winters along with a close friend of mine on January 12th, 1996 at the Bay Cafe in Santa Barbara California. At the end of our conversation he left me with a card I carry today. It reads:
" To Marv, It's always a "few good men (USMC) and I was just a boy of 17! "
"My friends card read: "If they take our guns, can we keep our bazookas?"
With your passing we are all diminished. Thank you for all you did.
A Good guy with a heart of gold he will be missed and he will be remembered as a good person and a fun guy we will miss him
God Bless You Funny Sweet Soul!
Thanks for a million laughs, your humanity, and your willingness to let it all go in front of an audience.
Thank you so much for years of laughter. Enjoyed the Dean Martin roasts, Mork's son, Mad World and all the others.

Jonathan Winters brought much laughter into our home over the years. He was one of a kind. May he rest in peace. My condolences to his family.
I routinely googled Jonathan just to see if there was any news about him. This was such a genuinely good and decent man as well as one of the most accomplished comedians in history. God Bless him and I am sure he is on stage right now gracing the Almighty with his particular brank of humour. He will have them all laughing for the next million years.
Such a multi-talented individual. He has provided the World with an abundance of laughter. God speed, Jonathan.
God bless you. I loved everything you did. Thanks for some wonderful years of watching you perform. You did it right.
When Jonathan was around it was always a mad, mad, mad, mad world. He was the best of the best. Thanks for all the laughs, Jonathan, and may you rest in peace.
Thank you Mr Winters for all the laughs and to the family I prayer God will bless and sustain you .
I've enjoyed many comedians in my time, but Jonathan was the very best. There was no one more creative and funny than he was. And what is better than bringing laughter and joy to the lives of others? He was fantastic and we will certainly miss him. God Bless Jonthan Winters. He was truly one of a kind. Thank you for the laughter, Jonathan.
My all time favorite comedian. Nobody else came close to this man's comic genius.
I have always loved you Mr. Winters. My mom used to let me stay up late when you were on the Jack Parr show. R.I.P. you dear man.
I loved him in the Scooby Doo cartoons!!!
John Was great In Ernest goes to Camp And goes To Jail He Will Be missed
Goodbye to a funny man one who didn't have to be obscene to make me laugh!
RIP thanks for the years of good clean laughter.
Bye Maudie we will miss you
MADE MY HEART LAUGH. GOD BLESS HIS SOUL.
Dear Jonathan, I have been a fan for many years and I loved all the characters you played. God Bless you and your family and friends. I hope to meet you in Heaven.
I knew this day would come someday. As a kid growing up in WVa I would listen to his albums for hours on end and do his bits with him! Through him I realized that I too was a Walter Mitty type.Thank you so much for all the years of fun and laughter. You made the world a better place by bringing joy to all of us!
Thank you for sharing your humor and talent with us for so many years. Your legacy will live on through your work. Sympathy to your family.
RIP JOHNATHAN, YOU WERE A TREASURE AND MADE US ALL LAUGH. GOD BLESS YOU
Jon Jon. You were the greatest of them all. Down right awesome in my book. Will never forget you. Rest in Peace
Jonathon Winters was that rare comedic genius that could take any object, any situation and just make you laugh til you cry.
One of my favorites was the Hefty Garbage Man.
I always got a laugh out of that one.
Patti would always dress up for Halloween in a garbage bag and everyone would call her Trashmouth.
R.I.P. my friend.
Sorry, to hear about the passing of Mr. Jonathan Winters. I remember watching him on t.v and would laugh for hours. May your hearts soon be filled with the wonderful memories of the joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.
It's a mad mad mad world?
One of our all time favorites.
David always said it's a true story, just didn't happen yet but will very soon.
I adored his humor and was proud that he overcame his problems.He was just so quick with the funny stuff. I will miss him.
Wow, my 1st recolection of Jonathan was as a teenager in Dayton. He was co-host on WHIO-TV with Jack Whymer, the Show was called "Queen for a Day" & my mother was selected & somewhere in our old photos we have that pic.
He was one of the BEST Comedians of his time.
My sympathy gose out to his family. Sincerely
One of the all time greats you will be sorely missed say hi the Frank from all of your & his fans RIP
For the light of humor you gave us, Jonathan, may you always have the light of love shining on you. RIP Jonathan
He was cast against type in one of the best "Twilight Zone" episodes, "A Game of Pool." TY!
With deepest regret. You will be missed.
Thanks for the many laughs,a man of many talents. Thanks for the memories. prayers are with family and friends.
God speed Jonathan!The curtain has come down on earth,where you brought laughter to millions.But i'm sure the curtain will open again, when the lord embraces you into his kingdom! RIP
Mr. Winters could break me up without opening his mouth. I remember him on the Tonight Show with Jack Parr. Every time they show, "It's a Mad, Mad Mad World" I watch it to see him. Rest in peace and thank you for the many memories and the laughter! When I get to heaven, you will get me laughing again!
Happy are they that mourn,since they will be comforted.".matt.5:4..so sorry for the loss..........
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
My heart-felt condolences to out to the Winters family for their great loss. We were blessed to have experienced the most talented comedic genius to walk the face of the earth. I grew up with Jonathan Winters and will miss his genuine ability to make me laugh at the simple things. I hope that the cable networks will rerun his movies and TV shows so that the younger generations can come to know this truly great man.
It seems here lately that most every time we look up, another part of our childhood passes on. There's been so many in the last year or two. Just the other day Annette and now Jonathon Winters. Mr. Winters was good in anything he starred in, he was really one of a kind and even some times he had a hard time not laughing at himself. His humor was one of a kind that will never be matched by others.
May Mr. Jonathan Winters Rest In Peace
I enjoyed our friendship for 20 years, breakfasts, lunches and dinners at all your favorites haunts. I'm sure you are enjoying plenty of fried clams and the largest piece of chocolate cake known to mankind!
None better, none will be more missed. Thanks for the laughter, you made a difference in this world.
Got to Meet Mr. Winters when I was in the Airforce back in 1982. He was doing a U.S.O show very funny man. I'm gonna miss him.
Jonathan Winters was one of the Greats.We lost a Very fun man. RIP

I thought you were the greatest! Don't think anyone can compare.

An original person.... They don't exist anymore.... Rest in peace...
The best comedic genius the world has ever known. Rest in Peace Jonathan, a new even larger audience awaits you.
Mr. Winters was,by far, one of the greatest comedic geniuses of our time. I smile and perhaps chuckle when other talented comics perform, but only Jonathan could make me laugh out loud!
What a funny guy a class act if ever their was one.
My heart sank when I saw the news that one of my favorite people in the world, Jonathan Winters has passed. A very funny man who was also a light for those of us who have battled depression. Condolences to family and friends of this wonderful man. Jonathan, you will live on on video and still entertain many with your wit! RIP Big Man! Keep them laughing where you are now.
To Mr. Winters' family: Jonathan was the ONLY genius in comedy that this world had. He had a myriad of IMITATORS, but none have/had his outstanding talents. No one has ever made so many millions of people really laugh out loud like he did. May you be surrounded by love & peace at this very sorrowful time. He will forever be remembered. An Admirer of this gentle man-JM, Austerlitz, NY
Gosh, he was funny. Really funny. He could transform himself from a pirate captain to football coach. His characterizations were so believable. He even impersonated General Swartzkoff. I can't think of anyone funnier than Jonathan Winters! I will miss his humor as I'm sure millions will. To his family, my sincerest sympathy. Thanks, Jonathan, for many years of creative comedy.
Thanks for making me laugh when during a time when I did not feel like it. You lifted me when I needed it most. Rest in Peace
God be with you, Jonathan! Thanks for the memories.
My condolences to Jonathan's family and friends. He was a big part of my childhood. A great memory and just thinking about him makes me smile today. He will be truly missed. xoxox
You made me laugh as I am sure you will do in Heaven
His acts were exactly that (comedy) . He didn't have nasty, vulgar words to make his audiences laugh, he had a God given talent . Family type show to gather around. Gone..another classic!! Pat M. Va.
Thanks for the decades of laughter. You proved one can be funny without being vulgar. As you said in It's a Mad World...."don't call me baby!"
He made me laugh!
May the family find peace during this time of sorrow.
I'll not forget him putting on a viking helmet and said "talk about wisdom teeth." Rest well.
God love ya Jon. You will never be forgotten. Wish I'd had the chance to meet you face to face just to tell you of how much joy and laughter you brought to me and millions of others.
So very sorry to hear of this very funny man's passing. He will be sorely missed by all. Another one of the greats has left us. My thoughts and prayers are with his family at this time. RIP
"and Bing Crosby's golf club" lol
R.I.P. Mr. Winters - thanks for years of laughter and entertainment. You will be missed.
He was good. We will miss him lots.
May his family find comfort at this time of sadness. Thank you for the laughs.

The joke is on us. We will have to live without such humor and wit. Jon Winters is dearly missed. John 17:3.
A classic comedian. The world who saw you perform will not forget you, your humor and kind nature.
May you rest and enjoy!

Goodbye Jonathan, thanks for sharing and taking us along for the ride. I have a little hole in my heart right now. Wait for me. I mean if there's an afterlife. Could you give us a heads up on that before next tuesday. Thanks for the memories and laughter. We have all lost another chunk of our better selves today.
I just wanted to say that I thoroughly enjoyed the comedy of Jonathan Winters and always enjoyed his appearances on the late night talk shows and on the Dean Martin shows and roasts .
He will be missed
RIP Jonathan Winters. May Bob H, Phyllis D, John R., and more be at the Pearly Gates to welcome you. You gave us so many laughs and good times, I'm sure God has a special place for you in the comedy heavens.
You may be gone, but you're in our hearts forever. God bless your family during their time of sorrow. We're all sad that you have left us. I'm sending you a big hug and a fond farewell my friend. Thanks for all you gave us.
The greatest of all time. My parents let me stay up and watch him when he hosted the old Jack Paar show way back when. I loved him. Pat from Topeka
The best in the world especially clean. So funny. We will miss you. You made life better for all of us.RIP
Thanks for all the laughs Jonathan, My favorite Its a Mad Mad Mad World! the scene at the garage a masterpiece! Good clean humor, I never have had someone make me laugh out loud like you! Thank you for the decades of good clean laughter,
Goodspeed, Mr. Winters. I have a 45 rpm with a couple of your skits on it. You were and are a comic genius. I'm sure you'll keep heaven in stitches. Thanks for all the laughs. God bless you
My prayers and most sincere condolences go out for the Family, Friends and Fans of Jonathan Winters. In the hope of offering some small solace I offer the following verse...
THE STRONGEST MAN..
(By Michael M. Kelly Sr.)
There never was a man so strong,
That the earth trembled as he walked about,
There never was a man so strong,
That the mountains shook when he would shout,
There never was a man so strong,
That the oceans would overflow if he wept,
But there was a man so strong,
That all that knew him will not forget.
He will be greatly missed; our condolences to Jonathan's family. Rest in Peace, Our Friend.
Jonathan, Thank you for making us laugh. I am sure they will welcome you in heaven as they are long overdue for a good laugh there.
I was saddened to learn about Jonathan's passing. I remember seeing him on TV when I was younger and watching my Dad "roar" at his jokes. I also thought he was hilarious. He truly was an amazing comedian and he will remain in the hearts of those he entertained. Deepest sympathy to his family and friends. RIP
A very funny man,he will be missed by
everyone.Our prayers to the family.
Rest in peace BIG MAN you gave us years of great entertainement now it is your turn to take a rest Go with GOD
Thanks for the Laughs!! Godspeed
He was a one of a kind ad-libber. I loved him with Johnny Carson & I especially loved Maudie Frickert. He was indeed a great comedian. He will be missed along with those great comedians of another era.
God Bless the Winters family. I have many fond memories of Mr. Winters on many occasions. I would always look forward to his appearance. His commedic timing was excellent and so unpredictable. He was so much fun to watch. He gave me many loud, tearful bouts of laughter.
To The Winters' Family:
Please accept my deepest sympathies for the loss of your beloved Jonathan! He will be greatly missed. I grew up seeing him on both television and in the movies. He made so many people laugh. I will celebrate Mass for him and the family this weekend at the Catholic Chapel at Ft. Sill, Oklahoma. God bless him!
Joan and I will always remember the Happy Times we had with you,Jon.GOD BLESS! BOB R.
Dear Jonathan, we will miss you so much.Thank you for all your incredible humor over the years and how you always managed to make us all smile in good times, and bad. You will always be considered the best of the best and Heaven is laughing now.
You were so great, always made me laugh! You will be missed! R.I.P.
As said before, you were the greatest of the greats of good comedy! You will be missed! May you Rest In Peace............there will never be another.
I still remember the first time I saw him on TV, many,many, many years ago. I was laughing so hard I had tears running down my face. I had never seen anyone do that kind of act. He played a Nazi Uboat Captain. Can't remember who's show it.
was. I'm sure he's got the whole place cracking up upstairs!!!
There will never be anyone like him again.
Oh, Jonathan- the smiles you have given and the joy that you imparted: Thank You.
Mr. Winters: Thank you for all your years of laughter. Such good comedy that the whole family could watch. May you RIP. You will be missed. Another Great Buckeye.
My all time favorite. He gave my family so much laughter growing up. Truly sorry to his family and friends. Heaven has gained an eternity of laughter which we have enjoyed in our lifetime. R.I.P. Mr. Winters and thanks for the laughter & your books.
Mr. Winters was one genuine comedian with incredible sense of timing and ad-lib. He was so smooth and funny!!!!
May his soul Rest-In-Peace.
To his family: I am sorry for your loss.
Absolutely brilliant. Perhaps the funniest movie EVER was Jonathan Winters' garage scene in "It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World". Nothing comes close! RIP big fella
Brilliant! Thank you for sharing your talent with the world. RIP
Do I go around signing celebrity guest books? No, only when it's the first non-cartoon character to ever make me laugh. Jonathan and John Ritter two of the funniest people ever, especially to a little 4 year old me back in 1980. Usually a new baby causes a show to jump the shark, not in Mork & Mindy's case.
One of the funniest movies 'The Russians are Coming' now one of my favorite. He will be remembered always. He is on his way to heaven where he belongs. Thank you for making us laugh. God Bless you! Mr. Winters.
He was the best,he could adlib at the drop of a hat. A true genius we have been blessed with his genius. RIP
You made me laugh all the time . You were one of the best at clean, wholesome comedy. May you rest with the same joy that you gave to others
God is comfort in our time of need,may He comfort you."Like a man whom his own mother keeps comforting,so Imyself keep comforting you people"...ish.66:13...dg
My thoughts and prayers are with the
family of Jonathan Winters. The smiles
and laughter he gave to us will be
Thank you for the laughs! May God comfort those family members left behind.
You were one of the greatest...I simply loved you in "It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World" I laughed so hard when you were walking so slowly around the mountain wall and everyone was looking at you. Then when all were gathered together to decide "what to do" and "each man for himself" and you mentioned "claiming it on your taxes" I laughed so hard I cried in every scene that you were in. I loved you for many years on numerous T.V. shows, including the "Tonight Show" and also the voice in a Christmas Cartoon..You will be so missed. Now you are in Heaven with the Lord and all of His Angels and making everyone laugh...May God be with you. An ardent fan forever, Sandra Slater, Louisville Ky.
Mr. Winters was such a beautiful soul! He made people laugh without being crude or coarse. My prayers are with all the loved ones left behind. RIP Mr. Winters! You will always be missed??
Heaven has gained a very great talent and yet we will be reunited and laugh together again one day! Rest in peace, our funny little man!
Even though he was 87 years old, this came as a bit of a shock. Jonathan Winters was a giant in comedy.
One of if not THE all time greatest comedic improvisers of all time. I listened to his records over and over when I was a teen ager. So sad to hear of his passing. My sincere condolences to his family and friends. Rest in peace Jonathan....job well done.
Jonathan Winters was BY FAR my favorite comedian growing up. I remember seeing Mad, Mad World in the theatre (was 10 at the time). His characters and specials on Prime Time television were the best. All of us classroom comedians would hope to be a fraction as funny as he was. My prayers are with the family and close friends. Matthew 5:4 A true fan in Houston, TX.
Sad day. Jonathan was a great man ...part of the "Old Guard" that has no replacement. May he Rest in Peace!
I loved Jonathan Winters. He could always make me laugh and you know that laughter makes the world seem better!!! I loved you Jonathan Winters. Thanks for all the laughter.

No one, and I mean no one, could conjure a laugh better than Jonathan with a facial expression and just walking onto a stage. This is a very, very sad day for me but, like the other greats, the laughs will go on forever. We love you Mr. Winters! Always have.
I grew up in Dayton and knew the Winter's name.I didn't meet Jonathan till LA. We talked about Dayton. He was a wonderful person and a great entertainer.

Many years ago, my grandmother took the whole family to see Mr. Winters here in Houston. I think I was about 9 years old at the time. What a fabulous funny man he was. As I got older, I loved watching him on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson.

The funniest man ever, period.
Rest in peace Johnnie and thanks for
the good times
I don't know how to thank you for making me so breathless with laughter! You were such a comedic genius! It is true that you have to know tragedy to know comedy and that you did. I am sincerely hoping that the younger comedians look in the dictionary one day to research the definition of funny. They are certain to see your face and I hope that they come to know the great human being that you were.
To the Winters Family sorry of your loss of Jonathan he was a funny actor. He will be missed. God bless you always
I loved his comedy and skits and will forever be indebted to him for making me laugh every time I saw him.
We love you Mr. Winters and will miss you. God Bless and you are now home.
