Arthur Wesley Winters left this earth like a shooting star on Wednesday, November 3, 2021. Surrounded by family and friends, he spent his final days at the beautiful Kobacker house, where he was cared for with the utmost love, respect, and attention.
Wes was a proud resident of Columbus, Ohio for over 40 years, while remaining loyal to his roots in Ipswich Massachusetts.
He was an avid sports lover, and excelled in cross country, baseball, and basketball at Ipswich highschool. He went on to play baseball for the University of Arizona. Throughout his life he maintained a love for participating in local leagues, watching and coaching his grandchildren, and following his beloved buckeyes.
He enjoyed a successful career in insurance before finding his true passion in Ohio State football. Wes was the proud owner of Scarlet and Grey tickets for over 25 years, and if you spent any time at the games in those days, you undoubtedly knew Wes.
His friendly demeanor ( “hey Buddy!”) and hilarious antics won him a permanent spot in the hearts of so many. If you truly understood Wes, you absolutely loved him. His one of a kind presence and fierce loyalty to those he loved, will leave him deeply missed for the rest of our days. He had us laughing and on our toes until the very end.
He is survived by his 3 loving daughters Kimberly Winters ( Dustin), Libby Taddiken (Ben), and Dana Winters ( Chris) as well as grandchildren Jessica Carlisle( Cainann), Justin Sword, Blake Fischer, Anthony Trebonik and Victoria Trebonik. He had many friends throughout the years, including his lifelong neighborhood pal, Mary Hardy.
He is united once again with his angels, including wife Elizabeth Winters, son Casey Winters, grandson Nicholas Trebonik, sister Carol Jones, cousin Robbie Turvey, aunt Mary Turvey, and parents Arthur Winters Sr. (Red) and Emily (Prada) Winters.
Noon hour visitation followed by 1:00-2:00 pm service will be held at Shaw Davis Funeral Home 4341 North High Street Columbus 43214 on Monday November 8, 2021.
