Mickey David Winfield


1976 - 2009 Obituary Condolences
Mickey David Winfield, 33, of Portales, died Saturday, March 28, 2009.
He was born March 24, 1976, in Oxford, England, to his parents, Vicky and Danny Winfield. Because Mickey's father was in the military, he grew up moving to and from various duty stations. Consequently, he had lived in England, German, Turkey and the United States. Mickey graduated from Alamogordo High School in 1995.
He moved to Portales in 2000 to attend Eastern New Mexico University, where he earned a bachelor's degree in communications with an emphasis in broadcast journalism. During his college career, he was a member of Sigma Chi fraternity and had served as the chapter's vice president. 
He married Lacy Wilkerson, whom he met while in college, on Jan. 5, 2002, in Portales. After graduation, Mickey worked as a DJ for a morning radio show in Artesia. In August 2002, he became a sportscaster for KBIM Channel 10 in Roswell. He later moved to Ruidoso, where he was program director for a group of radio stations. He moved back to Portales in 2006 to become a sportswriter for the Portales News Tribune.
Mickey was an avid sports fan and was especially devoted to the Dallas Cowboys. He also enjoyed playing flag football.
Mickey was baptized at Faith Baptist Church in Enid, Okla., in 1992. Above all, Mickey was a devoted husband and a tender, loving father.
Mickey is survived by his wife, Lacy, and his daughter, Zoe Winfield, both of the family home; his parents, Vicky and Danny Winfield, of Midwest City, Okla.; two brothers, Danny (Jackie) Winfield Jr., of El Paso, and Donald (Karen) Winfield, of Savannah, Ga.; his mother-in-law, Vickie Wilkerson, and a sister-in-law, Chelsey Wilkerson, both of Portales.
He was preceded in death by four grandparents and his father-in-law, Preston Wilkerson, who died Aug. 8, 2008.
Funeral services will be at 2 p.m. Wednesday, April 1, 2009, at First Baptist Church in Portales, with Dr. David McFadden officiating.
Burial will follow in the Portales Cemetery with Danny Winfield, Jr., Donald Winfield, Clint Cassingham, Pat Newman, Jeff Newman, and Ricky Newman serving as pallbearers.
