Obituary

Earl Bascom Winn (72) of Midway, GA passed away in The Georgia War Veterans Home in Augusta, GA with his son and daughter by his side.
Earl was a native of Commerce, GA where he was raised and graduated from Commerce High School. He continued his education at Athens Technical College in Athens, GA. After college he joined the Navy where he was stationed at the Naval Air Station in Pensacola, FL. and served during the Vietnam War. While serving in the Navy he met the love of his life, Wanda Winn, who became his wife of 27 years. The couple resided in Midway, GA.
Earl loved the great outdoors where he spent most of his spare time hanging out with family and friends, working with his brother-in-law and best friend Gary Hixenbaugh on any project they could get their hands on.
Earl worked at GAF Materials for 20 plus years where he retired in 2015. One of his favorite vacations was going to the river at his cousin Johnny Moore's house in Jasper, TN., where they celebrated their family reunion every year on the Fourth of July. Earl was always cheerful, a smiling face willing to lend a hand, you could say he was a jack of all trades.
