Obituary for Robert Winters

Robert "Bob" Winters clocked in to his first Heavenly shift and reported to his Eternal Supervisor on February 8, 2018 after wearing his worldly work clothes for over 61 years.

Born in Oklahoma City to Estle Nolan and Melba Clementine Green on May 15, 1956, Robert later graduated from Midwest City High School in 1974. He married Cheryl Lynn Tribble in November 1977, and they began an adventure that lasted over four decades. In 1979, Robert started a career with General Motors when they first opened the Oklahoma City Assembly plant and worked until they closed the doors more than 25 years later.

Robert accepted Christ as his personal Savior as an adult. His hobbies included coin collecting, metal detecting, and anything related to camping, hiking, and fishing and was active in these as long as he was physically able. Robert loved attending his sons' activities, especially high school football games. Lately, when health permitted, he enjoyed driving across Oklahoma with his wife in order to discover a locally famous restaurant and have a meal in a little town. Robert also instilled an appreciation for classic country music into his sons and embodied the values of hard-work, respect, and a love for Mama.

He was preceded in death by his parents and his parents-in-law, Jimmie D. and Maxine Hogan Tribble.

Robert is survived by his wife and two sons, Robert Jr. and Jimmie Ryan; half-sister, Judi; half-brother, Larry; step-mother, Ruth Winters; step-sisters, Nora and Deborah; step-brothers, John and James and several nieces and nephews on both sides.

A memorial service will be held 2:00 PM, Saturday, February 24, 2018 at First Baptist Church of Midwest City in Midwest City, Oklahoma.
