Joshua Wayne Winkler


Joshua Wayne Winkler was born to Raymond Winkler and Sherry (Freeman) Winkler on October 10, 1994 in Beloit, KS.  Joshua has three brothers David Kelly Winkler and wife, Shelby of Kismet, Ks, Monte Ryan Winkler of Beaver, Ok and Sheldon Lane Winkler also of Beaver, Ok.  He was blessed with loving Grandparents Edna and Roy Freeman formally of Hooker, Ok presently of Amarillo, Tx and N.L. and Gloria Winkler of Liberal, Ks.  Great Grandparents Carl and Pearl Kiser of Adair, Ok and Great Grandmother Idella M. Fee of Marble Hill, Mo.

Joshua loved his pickups, motorcycles, and big trucks.  Joshua followed his Ol' Man's footsteps, hauling cattle was his life.  He would tell you "Doing what I love! Just living the dream!"

His momma enjoyed watching him play football from the time he started in Kids, Inc. in Liberal, Ks through his high school years.  She also made his wrestling matches that he loved to compete in.

Joshua had a great passion and love for people.  He took great pride and comfort in helping people.  Joshua never met a stranger, always had a smile, and a onery twinkle in his eye.  When he stopped to help you he became a friend.  This charm and charisma is what led to all the great friendships that gained him the honor of being a best man and groomsmen in many weddings.

Josh was a member of the May, Ok Volunteer Fire Department.  He enjoyed this immensely and sincerely held the highest respect for his fire family.

Joshua is survived by the love of his life and best friend, Kalea Devine.  They have been together and by each others sides since high school.  Josh loved her and their fur babies Daisy, Zoey, and Harper more than anything in this world.

Joshua was also granted a bonus family when his father remarried.  He gained a step mother, Brenda, a step sister Kimi Frazee and her husband, Justin, two step brothers Brandon Abare and Kalyn Abare and his wife, Jasmine.  He also gained 4 nieces Shaelynn, Hana, Ralyn, and Kinsley and 2 nephew Braddock and Barrett.


Joshua is proceeded in death by Grandpa Roy Freeman and Great Grandpa's Carl Kiser and Albert Fee.
