March 22, 1948 - September 29, 2017
Our dad was reunited with our mom in Heaven September 29, 2017 while surrounded by his family at home. Who would have known that a little boy born March 22, 1948 in Minnesota would meet his soulmate 17 years later in Grants Pass, Oregon? After graduating from Grants Pass High School in 1966, dad drove to Los Angeles and married our mom August 26, 1966. They settled in Central Point and raised three daughters. After working 40 years at Boise Cascade, he retired to enjoy spending more time with his family and dear friends. His hobbies included restoring cars and taking trips. How he loved to drive! He felt blessed to get to experience the first year of his great-grandson's life.
His wife, Kathy preceded him in death January 6, 2016. He is survived by three daughters, Mandy Winter (Kevin), Andrea Caster (Kevin), and Carrie Cordova (Will); three grandchildren, Josh Winter (Tricia), Jourdan Caster (Paul), and Alexander Cordova; great-grandson, Everett Winter; three sisters, Faye Compson (Kim), Shasta Henderson (Sam), and Loree Quarles (Randy); and one brother, Dan (Lynn).
A celebration of life will be held this coming spring.
