To the Winston family, my condolences and prayers go out to your entire family. Brother Nate was a life long friend, high school football teammate and he went on to the University of Iowa where he perfected his athletic skills. He was loyal to his family and always let it be known that family's first. Throughout our adult lives, Nate stayed in communications with all of his long time acquaintances, where ever he may have travelled throughout his journeys, Nate kept us all in touch with one another, this we all shall truly miss. God Bless you my brother & may you rest in peace . J. Lou

Rest In Peace Nate. He was a very close friend of the Hortons’(Leonard) I last saw him at my sister’s funeral in 2018. He came by the house and enjoyed himself reminiscing with my brothers and other family members. He and his group treated us like sisters. It was great seeing him and we were sadden to hear of his passing. Rest well Nate, Tyrone & Leonard.
