Portillos Chocolate Cake and the secret ingredient - I learned so many things from my Uncle Bill. When I think of him I think of LOVE and ORGANIZATION. He was putting his Valentine's decorations up already. I admired his organization and his lists - at the services today we learned of a long list and there were quite a few things left to do - one was "get a tattoo" - not kidding! He was a very funny guy too - he could easily have been a comedian, home decorator or personal stylist. I loved hearing about his outings with his grandkids and the special things he did for them. He was extremely generous with his time, knowledge and listening. He did so much at the school where he taught - he loved to show me the special handmade cards some of the students would make - he would display them around his house - it meant a lot to him that he was appreciated. He cared so much for his students and his athletes and really built their character. I want to be more like my Uncle Bill - he lived out the "Four Agreements" - Be Impeccable to your word, Don't make assumptions, Do your best, Don't take anything Personally. I miss him so much - my heart is so heavy with sadness and yet I know he is with my Aunt and his Father who Art in Heaven - I'm going to have my Portillos Chocolate cake now - celebrating him!! Secret ingredient is mayo or miracle whip - it gives it the creaminess texture!

Bill Winterfield represented and helped make District #101 and McClure Jr. High a great place to learn and help students grow. For over 50 years Bill did what he enjoyed! From teaching Health & Science, and PE to school scheduling and maintenance, coaching basketball and volleyball; Bill made a difference! We all respected Bill for his work ethic, commitment to do the best, and the many hours he spent working at the tasks he undertook at McClure. It was never about what was best for Bill Winterfield; it was what was best for the students and the district. Bill enjoyed the details. Early on, if it was about scheduling of students, he made sure, before computers, the job was done right! If it was about taking care of the physical building, he made sure he did not leave things to others. He was the one who double checked . You could always depend on Bill. If it had to do with coaching, he made sure his girls understood and appreciated how he made them better players. If there was one thing that Bill most enjoyed it was how he made a difference in kids lives, especially in his coaching. Bill and I taught at McClure for over 40 years. There is no one I respected more. How lucky we were to know Bill Winterfield,

Bill was a trusted colleague who never failed to lend a hand, no matter the project. His devotion to the McClure community was absolute, and I know he´ll be sorely missed. Heartfelt condolences to all of Bill´s loved ones.
