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.
