Visitation will be held June 11 at Spry Memorial Chapel from noon to 2 p.m. with the funeral afterward at 2 p.m. Officiating will be Bro. DeWayne Crumley. Burial will be at Franklin Memorial Gardens.

Wayne was born June 15, 1939, in Alabama to the Rev. Johnnie and Linnie Winsted.

He was preceded in death by his parents and by his brother, Chester Winsted.

Mr. Winsted is survived by his loving wife of 58 years, Colena Newell Winsted; his daughter, Cynthia Winsted Pounders (Paul); his son, Alan Winsted (Debra); grandchildren, Amanda DiTrocchio (Matt), Kelly Murray (Dustin), Hunter Winsted, Levi Winsted, Aymee-Beth Britton and AshLee Britton; great-grandchildren, Hayden DiTrocchio and Brock DiTrocchio; brothers, Autry Winsted and Larry Winsted; and several nieces and nephews.

He worked for Robbins Tire for 18 years and then for the Alabama Forestry Commission for 31 years. Wayne enjoyed spending most of his days on his cattle farm, coon and deer hunting, shooting guns and gardening, but his favorite way to spend his time was with his family and friends.

Thank you to Helen Keller hospital staff, nurses and doctors as well as Terrace Manor Rebab for the care they gave him. Thank you to everyone who called and visited with him and us during this time.
