Keith Winship – September 20, 2017

Thursday, October 5th, 2017

Keith Winship

April 10, 1950 – September 20, 2017
Born and raised in Susanville, Keith was the eldest son of Ralph and Loretta Winship. Keith attended Lassen High School, where he excelled at football and was scouted by several universities. After graduating in 1968, Keith elected to attend junior college in Sacramento but shortly returned to Susanville to work with his father in the woods. Keith was an excellent timber faller and traveled the west coast working for a helicopter logging company. He loved working in the woods, looking forward to each new season.

Keith retired from logging after an automobile accident in 1981. Through strength and determination, he returned to work when he and his father purchased Diamond Saw Shop. Keith accepted the role as single father to his three daughters while operating his own business. Taking an early retirement in 1991, Keith filled his time with bass fishing and leather work. He was an award-winning leatherworker, creating pieces for friends and family to enjoy. The greatest joy was brought to him by his three grandsons. He loved spending time with them and said taking care of them during the summer was his “job”. His love and dedication to his family are cherished and will live on in the generations that follow.

Keith was loved, respected and will be greatly missed. He was preceded in death by his parents, Ralph and Loretta Winship. Keith is survived by his daughters, Kerri Cobb, Stacy Winship, and Carly Winship, his son-in-law Terry Cobb, Jr., his grandsons Tanner Cobb, McCoy Cobb, and Dominic McClain, his brothers, Ralph Winship Jr. and Randy Winship, and sister-in-law Nancy Winship. Also surviving Keith, are his aunt, Vernice Palmer and numerous cousins and nephews.

A luncheon to honor Keith’s life will be held on Saturday, October 28th, 2017 at 12:00 pm at the Monticola Club in Susanville. Please bring a story to share with his family and friends to celebrate his life.

Why Pre-plan?

Thinking about your own funeral leaves most people feeling a little uneasy, but more adults are finding that pre-planning a funeral offers great emotional and even financial security for them and their families. With pre-planning, families find comfort in knowing that the funeral reflects what their loved one wanted. It also gives them peace of mind to not have to make important decisions at a stressful time. Click here to visit Walton’s Funeral Home
